What people are saying:
" Abi's Holga Guide eliminates the need for wasting a ton of film while experimenting with your first Holga camera. It's beautifully written, easy to digest, includes plenty of step-by-step images, and a tool guide to ensure you have everything you need. I particularly love the section with her Portra 400 examples. There's nothing like this guide in the education world." - Dani Toscano
