What is Lubitel Lomography? An Analogue Picture Rhapsody!

Photographing with the Lubitel+ is somehow intimate. Every shot a personal reflection characterised by the Lubitel+’s pro-quality uniqueness.

Unlike most cameras, you cannot hide behind the Lubitel and spectate. Instead you move together – holding it close to your chest with head bowed to look down the top down viewfinder. As many practised Lubitel devotees will know this intimate experience, of capturing rather than shooting, translates into some of the most passionate, atmospheric and surprising images you will ever create.

Picture result? An analogue rhapsody, where the love and care behind each shot is clear to see, along with the creative surprises unique to the Lubitel+ effect. The striking look of professionalism spills out from the image. In spirit, format and creative possibilities – The Lubitel+ is unlike anything to come before.

History. The Lubitel Family has seen it all!

You could say the Lubitel+ has been 60 years in the making. The first Lubitel camera was launched right after the war in 1946 under the name Komsomolets. In 1949 the camera received a name change and with it a new direction. The Lubitel, meaning “Amateur” in Russian, gave ordinary Soviet photography lovers the chance to achieve professional image quality using a fully manual and affordable TLR camera. Read more

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
