My Lubitel+ Story... A Walk in the Park

8

Over the past couple of months, I have had the great privilege of testing out the new "Lomo Lubitel 166+":http://www.lomography.com/lubitel166+/ to get a feel for this amazing new camera. One of my favorite things to do, ever since I first discovered Lomography, has been to just go out walking with a camera and pockets stuffed with film, to just let the world come through my lens. It's a way of heightening your senses and really become attuned to the world around you. It has always been, for me, a very intimate approach to taking pictures, and if someone asked me, I'd say that's what Lomography is all about.

One of my favorite things to do, ever since I first discovered Lomography, has been to just go out walking with a camera and pockets stuffed with film, to just let the world come through my lens. It’s a way of heightening your senses and really become attuned to the world around you. It has always been, for me, a very intimate approach to taking pictures, and if someone asked me, I’d say that’s what Lomography is all about.

So one weekend, I took the Lubitel+ out with me on a walk through Central Park. I brought along the Lubikin kit and about 20 rolls of film, both 35mm and 120, of all different varieties and flavors.

What happened to me on that day is that I fell in love with the Lubitel+. Never had I experienced such a connection to the photos I was taking. I was actively involved in every photo I took. It wasn’t just snapping, it was using my eyes, my hands, and my heart to capture a moment. It was so intimate and honest, and every photo created a bond between myself, my subject, and my new favorite camera. I didn’t go home until all the film was shot, and I haven’t put the camera down since.

Here are the results of my walk in the park with the Lubitel+.

    I just bought a Lubitel 166+ and I'm really excited to start shooting with it. I got my start in photography with Lomography cameras, but now I'm starting to want something more professional.
