Well i got a new camera and am really excited about the possibilities. I was feeling a bit lacking in control with my Diana F+ and Diana Mini (not a bad thing) but felt like I wanted to create pictures not just take them. I decided on the Lubitel for that reason and I have fallen in love with medium format. I went out for a walk one day with some Ilford XP2 400 film and took some pics with my new camera. It was a bit hard to get used to the viewfinder but I had fun. It was a warmer day but my fingers got cold a few times so I had to go for a warm up. Here is a selection of my favorite photos from that day.

I am really looking forward to getting to know this camera further and seeing what we can do together.
