Lubitel Love From Waist Level Chapter 8: That Lovin' Feeling

The combination of its glass lens, the flexible 120 or 35mm format, fully manual everything, fully automatic nothing, peering into a waist-level finder, slowing things down with focusing and dialing in the correct exposure settings, and a myriad of other analog factors make it a full-bodied experience that activates all of your senses and brings you into a special and very intimate place.

I Never Knew Love Like This Before
Shooting with the Lubitel is different than anything you have shot before. The combination of its glass lens, the flexible 120 or 35mm format, fully manual everything, fully automatic nothing, peering into a waist-level finder, slowing things down with focusing and dialing in the correct exposure settings, and a myriad of other analog factors make it a full-bodied experience that activates all of your senses and brings you into a special and very intimate place.

Now, let’s compound things by adding this new experience of shooting to the other two variable factors: the people likely to use the Lubitel and the things that they’re likely to shoot. A Lubitel lover, described before, is a big-hearted and open-minded lady or gentleman. They might be an analog aficionado, a camera nerd, a passionate waist-level romeo, a super-fan of random results, a world traveler, a city-to-countryside roamer, a slow-light painter, a registered nurse, a medium format technician, or both the king and queen of the prom.

Their subjects range an equally huge gamut of possibilities and locations: from friends, to families, to pets, to places, to dinner, lunch, and breakfast, from the bottom of the sewer to the top of the pops. Given all of these many-faceted possibilities swirling around, it’s sometimes a bit difficult to see a rhyme or reason to everything. To help you along, we’ve crafted the following few Lubitel Laws.
