Love From Waist Level Chapter 12: Look Twice

We can confidently say that almost every Lubitel image has something worth keeping. A poignant bit of drama.

Look Twice
When you’re shooting a ton of film, it’s easy to treat some of your images as disposable. You’ll get a fresh batch of prints back from the developer and toss a few of the more plain shots into the recycle bin. Why not? You already shot a picture of a full English breakfast last month? But hold your horses for a minute! Just as you slowed down to take the image, slow yourself down to evaluate it too. We can confidently say that almost every Lubitel image has something worth keeping. A poignant bit of drama. A scrunched-up happy face. A little surprise in the corner. Some shirtless jackass who you’ve never met before. Or maybe…just maybe..the final creative climax!
