Never Crooked Photos

7

Have you ever made crooked photos? It happened to me with my film test with my Lubitel....but there is a solution!

I had bought a beautiful Lubitel 166B, in perfect condition despite the years!

For the first roll of film I wanted to exaggerate a bit and I took her with me at the factory one day stop.

It was very dark, but with an 800 ISO film and its versatility, the result was quite good (at least for me): the photo in effect are almost all good (9/12) and most without excessive grain.

Too bad that many of the photos are crooked!

Even while I took them I realized that it was not particularly easy in framing of the subjects because of the mirror to reality, but I never imagined so much to tilt the photos!

Look here:

Here is most evident, the picture is inclined of 30 degree!
Here, too, the same speech and the same error above photo …
Here it is less noticeable, but I assure you that the oven is not in fact so inclined.

Released the album I discussed a bit with my friends at the Lomo Baazar and found out that I am not the only one to have had this problem!

But luckily, as I said at the outset, there is a solution for everything!

In fact, my friend Ravo86 passed me a link where you can buy a object that is just for me, here it is!

Hey, looks like an ordinary level! And it is!

Yeah, a level enough to solve the problem! But how and where to put it on the camera? And here is the truchetto: this small level has a standard attack like that of flash, so as to place it firmly to your camera, look at this photo:

Cute!!!

Well, now I have no more excuses to crooked photos! Thanks Ravo86!

LOMO ON!

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

    Pentax Auto 110: the undisputed master of 110 photography!

    Being an addict of large and spacious 6x6 negatives on 120 film, I never would have thought I'd own a 110 camera someday. But when I came across the Pentax Auto 110 on an auction site, it was just too darn cute not to buy it. So I placed a bid, won the auction, and am now the proud owner of the tiniest SLR ever made!

    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.
