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!
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+
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!
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+!
