    How to get light swirl on film ?

    This artist uses a Holga120S with using a remodeled board. I don't understand what a remodeled board is. I think she uses Fujichrome 120 format color film or the Velvia color film.

    I want to learn how to do this with 35mm and 120 film. Does anyone know ?

    What, flare? Point at the sun. Just don't look at it.
    Thank you.

    When I shoot into the sun using a regular Holga (and I have 3 of them) I get the same effect. It's the cheap plastic lens (although it appears she uses a pinhole as well) that does it. I don't think film choice really matters, although to get the most out of your Holga for the Holga effect, use 120 film.

    This is pinhole, no lens just a small hole on a board where a lens should be
    seed the alternative process form it has pinhole.

    Holga without lens, lens replaced with a pinhole cap.

    Looks to me like additional defects were introduced to the lens, scratches or another type of defect. I have a older Zeiss 50mm C for a Hasselblad that renders a similar look in specular backlit situation because it has a nick in the front emement. I keep it just in case I want to create a drastic flare effect. Experiment, pick up a couple used Holgas or other cheap camera and screw around with the optics, you can up with your own look.

    The captions over on Flickr say those are pinhole pictures. Which explains the remodeled board.

    Please don't Multi-Cross post. It's annoying to us RSS readers.
    Thanks
