Lubitel Love From Waist Level Chapter 40: Lubitel Techniques, Playing the Field

A beautiful aspect of the Lubitel is that the shutter and advance are not coupled. Sure, you can shoot a frame, looks at the little numbers in the back, and advance to the exact start of the next one. But try shooting a roll blind.

Playing the Field

Take a photo and advance a little bit – whatever you think is proper – and shoot again. Take a far subject and then – immediately after – a close subject. Your ultimate goal should be an enormous, unpredictable, multi-exposed, and overlapping serial image. Toss in a flash here or there, and change the orientation of the camera. Use slide film with normal slide processing for extra-easy scanning after development.
