Self Portraits With the Lubitel

2009-01-31 27

It may just of happened that you are so in love with your Lubitel that you are reluctant to let others hold it, let alone use it. If this is the case, then most probably the majority of your pictures will exclude one important person, yourself! But there is a way to get yourself in the picture as well, and we are sure that you have already embarked upon the journey of self portraits already. Yes? We knew it!

It may just of happened that you are so in love with your Lubitel that you are reluctant to let others hold it, let alone use it. If this is the case, then most probably the majority of your pictures will exclude one important person, yourself! But there is a way to get yourself in the picture as well, and we are sure that you have already embarked upon the journey of self portraits already. Yes? We knew it!

For this rumble we are looking for any picture that is taken of yourself, by yourself! Maybe you used a tripod and a cable release maybe not. Maybe you captured your pretty face, or maybe it was a hand, a leg or even your heiny? We sure that at least some body part entered your viewfinder at least once!

Details:

  • Only Lubitel shots
  • Self portraits only (does not mean your face!)
  • 1 winner get 10 piggies
  • By submitting to this rumble you allow Lomography to use your pictures for promotional purposes

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.
