Super Selfies Taken Using the Lubitel Cameras

2013-07-30 5

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!

Some may find it a little challenging to work with a twin-lens reflex (TLR) camera like the members of the Lubitel family, but once you’ve gotten used to peering and focusing through the waist-level lens, you’ll start snapping away in no time. The Lubitel cameras are great for taking portraits, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fiddle around with it to take self-portraits! Take a look at the super selfies some of our fellow lomographers have taken in the selection below:
