Hi fellow deviants,
In our next issue we'll do an article about the Holga. Our editor in chief tested the camera, but we're not very happy with the results just yet. As there are loads of Holga photographers here on deviantART, I was wondering if any of you would like to contribute with their own art. There will be no payment, but we'll credit you with name and you'd have a printed publication in a lifestyle magazine.
If you're interested send me a note asap, we'd like to finish the page by today. Please get in touch with your email address and a link to the work you'd like to show.

Very impressive work! Respect! Might I ask a little inside question? I'm sure you take a bunch of photos before deciding on just "the one"; how do you choose? Is there a process (that can be learned) or is it intuition (in which case I'm doomed forever)?
Never really thought of it before. I guess I do it this way: I pick my favourites from intuition, so I have a tighter selection. Then I decide on technical things to pick the best out of the favourites. If it's a commissioned shot, the most important thing is not my personal taste but what the customer will like, so I try to predict that.
