Impressive Portraits Taken With the Belair X 6-12 Cameras

If portraits are your thing and you want to get crisp shots that speak out, look no further, for the Belair X 6-12 can do the job for you! If you have one, but haven't tried shooting portraits with it yet, let these impressive shots by your fellow lomographers serve as inspiration!

What makes a good and effective portrait constitute? Composition, lighting, and mood setting are paramount, but so are clarity, sharpness, and proper exposure. All of these you can achieve with practice and a camera that lets you do the job — like the Belair X 6-12 cameras!

If you happen to be one of the lucky ones to have a Belair camera, but haven’t gotten around to mastering the art of portraiture with it, allow us to inspire you with some impressive portraits taken by some of your fellow lomographers:

The Belair cameras let you shoot in three formats — 6×12, 6×6, and 6×9 — while also letting you enjoy the crisp details offered by medium format film. Since it accommodates interchangeable lenses, you have lots of room to experiment for those picture-perfect portraits!

Don’t forget that you can now shoot 35mm films with the Belair using the dedicated 35mm Back, so you can shoot unique panoramic portraits like what lomographer ccwu did in his photos below!

Now, why don’t we get a discussion rolling here — do you want to find out the secrets behind the impressive portraits above, from the masters of Belair portraiture themselves? Go ahead and ask them a question or two!
