Petzval Lomographer of the Week: andrejrusskovskij


Our featured lomographer’s forte is a field where the New Petzval 85 lens excels the most: portraiture.

Italy-based lomographer andrejrusskovskij's is one of the most respected community members when it comes to portraiture. Although he is just relatively new to shooting with the New Petzval 85 lens, he already showed a promising start in his recent holiday albums (1, 2, 3, 4) taken in Florida and The Bahamas.

Honed through years of practice, andrejrusskovskij’s immense talent at taking portraits is visible in the way he composes his shots. He exactly knows how to tease his audience with playful poses and vibrant colors. The swirly background courtesy of the New Petzval lens just lends a dreamy atmosphere to his already beautiful and well-thought-out portraits.
