The Lubitel+’s size and flexibility make it uniquely suited to all sorts of impulsive and experimental techniques. Shoot 120 or 35mm film. Take two, three, or fifteen shots on the same frame. Take a perfect endless panorama. Or shoot a huge, overlapping, multi-exposed behemoth image that spans the entire roll.
Games of Love
But it’s not all serious and methodical. After all, making exact plans and predictably following through on them every time isn’t very Lomographic. It’s not all that much fun, either. The Lubitel+’s size and flexibility make it uniquely suited to all sorts of impulsive and experimental techniques. Shoot 120 or 35mm film. Take two, three, or fifteen shots on the same frame. Take a perfect endless panorama. Or shoot a huge, overlapping, multi-exposed behemoth image that spans the entire roll. Carefully focus and plan each shot. Or (quite literally) shoot from the hip with the camera at your waist level, a focus zone sorta set, the aperture & shutter more or less correct, and your finger blazing away at the shutter release every second that something attractive crosses your eye. Love stories are boring when the ending is always the same. Use your Lubitel+ to tell an entirely new tale.
