Fresh from the Lab: Hari Raya Portraits

A couple of weeks ago, my family and I celebrated Hari Raya after a month of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. Since the first day I laid my hands on the Lubitel 166+, I've always had the thought of taking portraits of my family. So this year, I finally took them. Here they are: Hari Raya Portraits!

In the morning after doing the Hari Raya prayer, I went back home to set up the tripod and the Lubitel 166+. It was a simple set up, really. Just a tripod, the Lubitel, and a white wall. Why the white wall? To keep things clean and simple, and to put the focus on the subjects themselves.

After setting up the mini white wall studio, I prepared the Lubitel and put an expired roll of Fuji NPS 160 in it. It was like a gamble because it was expired, but I was willing to take the risk anyway.

When I came back from the photo lab, I was so surprised to see that the result was beyond my expectations! I really like the photographs because I’ve been waiting to take portraits like these. “Up close and personal” was my approach when I took these portraits. I love how the Lubitel captured the colors of the familiar faces, their expressions. Full credits to the Lubitel!

As I realized that I’ve been waiting to take these heartfelt portraits, now my goal is to print these photographs, frame them, and put them somewhere in my parents’ home. After all, home is where the heart is.
