My passions revolve around my amazingly creative wife, journaling, lomography, book making, and travel. I work out of a petty cool studio in the woods just outside of Seattle. I love to make strange books and fill them up, and you will never find me withough at least one lomo camera and one journal. mono_p1 - Antwerp
How long have you been a Lomographer? How did you get into it?
I got my first LCA from my wife as an anniversary present I think in 1998. She had read someplace about this amazing camera that took really arty shots and so she bought me one. I used it on and off for a while, but didn't really go crazy with the LCA until I finally registered my lomohome in 2004 and started reading all the tips and tricks that others had posted. It was like a switch went off in my head and suddenly my cool camera transformed into a magic relic filled with infinite possibilites to explore.
What do you most love about the Lubitel?
The beautiful twin lens! The colors and saturation that you can capture with this camera are incredible.
Describe your Lubitel + in 5 words..
Light, perfect, surprising, bling, humble
The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.
The Lomo World Congress 2007 in London. Wow...the whole event was off the charts fun...and strange...and GREAT. I loved every minute of it. I'm ready for the next one!
If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please).
Ground Control to Major Tom by David Bowie, The Lighthouse by Interpol, Paranoid by Black Sabbath
What kind of person is most likely to be a Lubitel Lover? Tell us all about them.
People with patience and those that are fed up with not knowing whether their shots are in focus. Also, people who see lomography as an art rather than just a hobby.
Is this your first Lubitel camera?
no...I had an older one....but dropped it out my truck door one day and have been using it only for some TTV...I was very happy to get my new Lubitel 166+.
Is this your first Lubitel camera?
The exposure graphic guide on the back is amazing. I ran my first roll through the camera being very suspect about the accuracy of that graphic and then was startled at how well each shot of my first roll came out. I love not having to get my light meter out. My least favorite feature would be......hmmm....NOTHING.
If you could be anywhere, doing anything, right now V where would it be and what would you do?
At the LWC 07 I met lomographers from 29 different countries. I would love to be on a giant road trip right now visiting many of them. This is the kind of trip where I litterally would take nothing but some clothes, several cameras, my journal....and not a whole lot more. Aimlessly wandering the planet taking pictures, drawing, and meeting people sounds like a dream to me.
If you could give a Lubitel to anyone in the world (as a gift), who would it be?
My daughter (lomographer Trista)...she is my travel and lomo buddy and I would love to see what she could capture with it.
Your best photo so far, why?
hmmm....I'd have to say I love my horizontal tree shot the best so far from what I've taken.
Your advice to future Lubitel shooters.
Use the automatic stops for focusing. That makes it so easy and if your familiar with the LCA, then setting the distances will be a snap. I love using the viewfinder...but found that I was missing some shot opportunities by trying to get my eye acclimated to the view quickly enough. As soon as I quit worrying about it and started trusting the distance settings, that no longer happened.
