How I Did It - Save Coney Island

Name: Eve Simone
Title: Save Coney Island
Location: This photo was taken in Coney Island this past summer during the Mermaid Parade with a Holga.

How I did it: A Holga is a Russian camera and one of my favorites to shoot with. One of the many great things about a Holga is that you can advance the film however you like. Most of the film from this particular day is overlapping so when I processed the roll I had many pleasant surprises!

How I Did It is compiled by Susannah Tucker. Susannah is a self-taught photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. She has been fascinated with photography since she was a young girl, and enjoys experimenting with techniques, layers and textures. View the collection in her shop here.

Please contact Susannah if you would like to participate in a future How I Did It feature.

I love this image and Coney Island, RIP :(
It was so amazing to see so many people documenting this vital NYC landmark this and last summer.

Nice job!

A place I never got to go and now it's gone?! Bummer. But this photo is great and I'm so glad folks are documenting it before it's all gone!

Is Coney Island really gone? I thought it was all up in the air, so i suppose it has now been finalized. how sad. but what a great capture!
