Super Selfies Taken Using the Lubitel Cameras

One of the best photos you can take with twin-lens reflex cameras (TLR) is the self-portrait. Look for a mirror or a good reflective surface, focus and peer through the waist-level viewfinder, smile at your reflection, and press the shutter! Some of our fellow lomographers have taken pretty impressive selfies with their Lubitel cameras, so step right up and take a look!

The Lubitel cameras are great for taking portraits, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fiddle around with it to take self-portraits!
