2016-06-18 2

When it comes to taking self-portraits, the Lomo LC-A+ is the camera that reigns supreme. The proof is in the pictures – if you check out the Lomography photo archive, you’ll see a lot of mirror snapshots and all sorts of experimental self-portraits taken with the Lomo LC-A/LC-A+! To celebrate this phenomenon as well as the camera’s 32nd birthday, we picked 32 of our favorite shots and listed down some of the reasons why the Lomo LC-A+ makes the perfect choice for quick mirror self-portraits.

It’s small, compact, and cute.

It’s small enough to fit in your coat pocket or purse, small enough that it won’t distract the focus away from your lovely face, small enough for on-the-go snaps. Plus, its classic look won’t cramp your style.

It’s a fun camera to get creative with.

In just a flick of the MX switch, you can easily do multiple-exposures. Pair it with LC-A+ Accessories and you can shoot sliced-and-diced self-portraits with the Splitzer, or install an LC-A Instant Back+ for instant shots with that distinct LC-A vibe. Or, you can always experiment with different kinds of 35mm film to explore various looks; cross-processed slide film is a favorite among Lomographers!

The auto-exposure helps you nail that perfect shot.

No need to fuss around with settings, the Lomo LC-A+ automatically sets the perfect exposure so that you won’t have to worry about under- or over-exposed photos.
