“My favourite camera is the Lomo Lubitel 166. The main reasons for this choice are the square format and the reflex viewfinder. The square format (medium format) is great for shaping the shot, composition and balance.

The viewfinder is very convenient to frame the picture and to know exactly what will be in the picture. Also. the image is flipped horizontally and this helps to create a balanced picture. The very fact of seeing the subject looking down helps to avoid being influenced by prejudice visual.

This camera offers complete freedom with the ability to regulate times and apertures, to shoot multiple exposures, the presence of the self-timer and the connection for flash.

It ’s very solid and when in your hand gives a strong sense of security. The only thing that might be a little bit difficult at the beginning is leveling the camera but experience can easily resolve this drawback.

I recommend the Lomo Lubitel to all those people who want to dedicate themselves to a kind of reflective photography. This is not a point and shoot camera – keep that in mind.

I took my most beautiful pictures with the Lomo Lubitel 166."
