Lubitel Youbitel

A few months ago I was flipping through the pages of a fashion spread when a svelte model caught my eye. She was holding a Lubitel camera, and I was smitten. Not long after, Thomas, my long-distance beau, arrived for a visit from Los Angeles with a present in tow, a Lubitel of my very own. I have to say, I was a bit intimidated at first by the double lens and waist level view finder. However, this beginners level, medium-format camera isn’t difficult to use, and the nuances that come with variations in shutter speed and exposure are a welcome change from the monotony of the world of digital photography. Here are a few of my favorite pictures of the first rolls I have developed, complete with idiosyncrasies in focus, exposure and lighting. Enjoy and look for more Lubitel pictures to come!
