I shot this portrait using a Holga … sort of. It would be more accurate to say I used a Holga lens mounted on a Canon EOS-1D X. I bought the lens a long time ago, but have only played around with it a few times. On my day off, I finally unboxed some new lighting equipment and decided to try to make a Holga portrait (a Holgrait?) of my girlfriend using an AlienBee B800 flash and 47″ octabox. It was tough seeing Babs because the modeling light was burned out so I ended up with this outtake that ended up being one of those happy accidents.
