Portraits Like No Other with the Lubitel 166+

2

Whether in the studio or on the street, portraits are simply perennial part of a photographer’s portfolio.

And while it’s a great help if your subject is a pro in front of a camera, there’s also something beautiful and fascinating about candid portraiture.

But then again, when faced with friendly face and interesting camera — especially one as awesome and good-looking as our Lubitel 166+ — who wouldn’t feel like smiling or posing for a photo?
