Creative shots of everyday objects taken using the Lubitel cameras

2013-09-18 3

The next time you get the urge to take a photo of a coffee cup or a chair, remember to take a leaf out of our community members’ books and add extra oomph to your photos!

The mere thought of snapping random objects we see and use in our daily lives is boring enough. Some might even think that it’s a waste of film, especially when there’s a myriad of more interesting subjects that we can choose from. But then again, when you come to think of it, simple techniques (in addition to pure luck!) such as framing, utilizing the features of your camera, and picking a good kind of film can definitely go a long way. You don’t need to be a pro and have access to any and almost all kinds of subjects to take stunning photos!

Just take a look at these photos some of our community members have taken using cameras from the Lubitel family, namely the Lubitel 166+, Lubitel 166U, and Lubitel 166B! The Lubitel 166+ in particular, is a recreation of the Russian twin lens classic that has features such as the ability to switch between 120 and 35mm film and aperture/shutter guides. It will surely inspire you to bring out your artistic side!
