In the accompanying gallery there are some shoots from St Petersburg taken from the world browser on lomography.com and by "pan_dre":http://beta.lomography.com/homes/pan_dre himself. Enjoy!

  • My lubitel Story : I <3 Lubitel

    My lubitel Story : I  <3 Lubitel
    I wanted one for the sake of novelty. I admit it. It seemed so cool to have a TLR Camera. My friend had one but he wouldn’t lend it to me because it wasn’t working properly. So when I got my LC-A I decided to add the Lubitel 2 to save on the shipping costs (Oh the lies we tell ourselves).

    Ilford Film - The Surprise Pack

    My Lubitel Story:  No, It's Not a Rolleiflex
    No it's not a Rolleiflex and it's not a Hasselblad I'm holding in my hands. But people sometimes think so when they see me standing there with my Lubitel pointed at a great motive ready to take the picture. "It's a LUBITEL", I tell them and they just look at me sceptically.

  • My LomoStory by johann_affendy

    My LomoStory by johann_affendy
    Back when I was a social networking addict, I was always in search of new ways to edit my self-portraits; hoping it would spice up my 3.2 megapixel pictures. One day while scouring the Internet for tutorials, I stumbled across a Photoshop Action titled "lomography". The writer had a before-and-after comparison of a normal photograph and the lomo version of that same picture. The outcome, although digitally manipulated, piqued my interest enough to google more on lomography.
