Camera light leak photography

A light leak, commonly associated with Holga model cameras, is an area within a camera where light is able to seep, or “leak” in, causing the film to over-expose.

Within most cameras, this is considered a major problem, usually remedied through replacement of the foam between the back of the camera and the camera body.

Within Holga cameras specifically, the most common light leak areas are located at the corners of the front of the camera, the seams between the back and the body of the camera, and the exposure number window on the back of the camera.
