The Story So Far with the Lubitel+

On February, I graduated with my Masters Degree and I was so happy! No more exams and obviously no more thesis to write! I wanted to treat myself with a present, it's like a present from me to me and the perfect present would be a camera to shoot with after my post-graduate life. So a week after my graduation, I bought the camera I've been waiting for years: the Lubitel+! Here's my story so far with this camera!

Lubitel and I

As I received the package from DHL, I rushed upstairs and opened the package! Oh my! That feeling when you receive the new camera, it’s a feeling I’m not used to until now. I just love the excitement of unwrapping and finally touch the camera. In this case, I was so so excited because Lubitel+ is my first TLR so before go out and shoot like crazy with Lubitel+, I read the manual instructions and read the Lubitel book first to get the feeling and mood, of course to learn how to use this charming sexy camera! I spent hours to read them all and I finally took a photo using Lubitel+

First Lubitel shot

I decided to go out and went for a lomowalk with my dear lomofriend Bebop. I was so excited because this is the first time for me using Lubitel+ and I brought several rolls just in case I went crazy shooting and spend all the rolls! But I didn’t.

Of course, I shot Bebop!

Sometimes, my curiosity gets me and makes me want to shoot my shoes using this camera!

I also want to do macro photography with this camera but I’m still figuring out how to do the right focusing!

Eye

The main reason I bought this camera is this camera have 0.8 focus just like the mighty Lomo LC-A+ but Lubitel+ is a medium format camera so much analogue love in it! I just love taking portraits using Lubitel+!

and some other portraits!

After three roll of using Lubitel+, I decided to put a slide film in it and surprise surprise! I just love it! Lubitel+ and slide film is such a perfect combination!

I don’t know why I keep shooting myself if there’s a mirror around me, I guess TLR user would know the answer.

Talking about taking portraits, I took these portraits while my baby niece Nadia was sleeping. Sleeping beauty!

So, here’s my story so far with Lubitel+ and a lot more to come, including a doubles or film swap with a friend.

I simply love my Lubitel+!

    @vici woooowww! thank you very much and I take it as a great compliment :D :D . I just really love this camera and for many years I've been waiting for this camera, now finally I have it so it's really a great feeling. Lubitel+ have 0.8 focus just like the LC-A+ and I think that's the key for all my portraits that I took with this camera. Thanks again! :)
