The Lubitel's Lovely Faces


If there is one Lomographic camera that was made for portraits, then we've got to bow down to the brilliance of the Lubitel.

The magic that this camera brings when it comes to taking portraits is just mysteriously beautiful. Set in square format (or sometimes not!) the Lubitel captures the most beautiful faces, ever.

And we definitely have those stunning faces in our Community! So as a tribute to this camera we all love, we’re giving you 50 portraits taken using the Lubitel series. Be ready for a gallery of facial expressions and emotions. Enjoy!

Have we missed a portrait of you or a portrait you took? Sure, you can submit!

Love these Lomographs? Well, you can also photograph some especially with the Lubitel 166+ discount we’re giving on Lomography’s 20th anniversary! Party poppers, hooray!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.
