Even though I have been using my Lubitel 166+ for a while, I used to take mostly 120mm pictures. Yet, it will be a waste if I don’t use the extended function of Lubitel 166+ that other Lubitel cameras don’t have, that is, the use of 35mm films that take photos with sprocket holes.
Since I am quite confident of the quality of pictures taken by Lomo Lubitel 166+, I use it for E6 processing instead of cross-processing. I loaded it with a roll of expired tungsten film Kodak 160T and took it to the park.
I am quite satisfied with the result since they look really different from the cross-processing pictures which are saturated in colours. Since Kodak 160T is a tungsten film, the dominant colour of pictures is blue. As the film has expired, the colour is a bit light. The combination is pictures of vintage.
I have already loaded it with another roll of film and will experiment different shutter speed and apertures, looking forward to surprising results.
My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
