The latest fashion.
I shall be doing a whole heap of these now i know how. You need to be good at juggling cameras, however, they are so much fun.
TTV (Through The Viewfinder) photography is when you use an old medium format camera and a digital camera.
These old medium format twin reflex cameras have large viewfinders. Firstly you compose your image using the medium format camera (in my case i have used a mamiya c33) then you actually take the picture using a digital camera (here i use my pentax K10) of what is in the viewfinder of the old camera.
The result, to me, is a kind of dreamy, nostalgic (yep it’s the old camera) feel. All the dust, scratches, textures, increment measurements and imperfections come straight from the viewfinder of the medium format camera used here.
All you lovely ladies, Dani Di Cesare, for making me see the light. hehe, Jules Campbell for her amazing explanation on this method and Kitsmumma for providing beautiful visuals on this.
You are all so inspirational. Thank you!
Pssst PJ, i know i’ve seen an old twin reflex camera on your mantel, so you best get your creative visual juices flowing too. ♥
