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!

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