You and Your Camera in Analogue


Let's admit it, we can't help but snap a photo of ourselves once we get hold of a camera and a beautiful setting. And in an instant, we got ourselves a pretty neat self-portrait!

And why not, right? Who will take photos of photographers but photographers themselves. Plus hey, you deserve one awesome portrait to show off your wonderful portfolio.

That’s why this week in our selection of photos, the Community have decided to spoil more of your analogue photography vanity. How? By featuring your self-portraits and your cameras! Mirror images? Most probably!

So take a look at this week’s gallery and adore these lovable self-portraits! It’s pretty fun! And while you’re at it, can you guess the cameras our Lomographers used? Quite tricky, eh? Enjoy!
