Lubitel Love from Waist Level Chapter 10: Give Up Control and Learn to Love Analog

Even the most anal-retentive of photographers, with all the settings set perfectly, will find that the Lubitel pulls a surprise out of its bag of tricks every now and then. It’s best to roll with it - and be a little random yourself.

Give Up Control and Learn to Love Analog

That beautiful viewfinder is quite bright and gives you nearly 100% coverage. But that’s the only thing’s fixed in the world of Lubitel. Even the most anal-retentive of photographers, with all the settings set perfectly, will find that the Lubitel pulls a surprise out of its bag of tricks every now and then. It’s best to roll with it – and be a little random yourself. Guess the focus sometimes. Advance without looking at the exposure number. Fire a few shots on one frame. Hand a shot roll to a friend. No use trying to rope a bronco that can never be tamed.
