Self Portraits With the Lubitel

27

It may just of happened that you are so in love with your "Lubitel":http://www.lomography.com/lubitel166+/ that you are reluctant to let others hold it, let alone use it. If this is the case, then most probably the majority of your pictures will exclude one important person, yourself! But there is a way to get yourself in the picture as well, and we are sure that you have already embarked upon the journey of self portraits already. Yes? We knew it!

It may just of happened that you are so in love with your Lubitel that you are reluctant to let others hold it, let alone use it.

  • Only Lubitel shots
  • Self portraits only (does not mean your face!)

    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.
