Wanna be retro and cool? Of course you do. Everybody these days has a Holga camera, so how do you take that fun to the next level? Throw that cheapo plastic lens on your pro DSLR. HolgaDirect now makes a conversion kit, allowing Nikon and Canon cameras to accept a full range of the toy lenses including a macro, telephoto, and wide angle. This is actually a pretty cool way to get the Holga feel with none of the hassle or cost of developing and printing the film. The kit runs about $70, check it out here.

I was checking out the PDN blog this morning and was really sad to see not one, but TWO articles about celebrity baby photos- the ubiquitous Brad and Angelina twins and Jessica Alba’s baby. I guess it spurns the question of whether a blog should adhere to any standards? Of course it depends on the blog, but a blog linked to a respectable photography publication looses points in my book for even discussing paparazzi crap. Am I wrong?
