This was shot with a Holga 120N with aperture modification. One of the charming quirks of the Holga camera is that it comes with a switch for sunny or shady conditions. Sliding the switch to the sunny setting moves an arm into place between the lens and the film. There's just one teensy problem--the aperture in the arm is larger than the opening immediately behind the lens, so the switch has absolutely no effect on the amount of light striking the film. I've modified both my Holgas by removing the "shady" aperture ring behind the lens, and decreasing the size of the "sunny" aperture on the arm with metal tape. As a result, instead of the functional equivalent of a single aperture of about f/13 (everything about a Holga is approximate), I now have f stops of roughly f/10 and f/16.
