I took the TTV contraption out to the city last winter. On a day of shooting, this was one of the first captures, down one of the many laneways of Melbourne. We have a couple of celebrities in this shot, in the foreground you will see Andrew and in the background, Cas :)

    oh wow… this looks wild… I love the strong line patterns… how do you find working with a macro Filter?

  • Thanks Maria! I only ever use the macro filter for TTV shots. Ideally a macro lens would be used to capture the shots. Not sure if you had a go of it when I was in Syd?? Without the filter the lens can’t focus on the image, too close range between cameras. I might give macros shots a go with the filter.. haven’t tried that yet :)

    I so love the mood….such a wonderfully gritty b/w – great title for it too. You work wonders with your TTV contraption!

  • Thanks mate!! Glad you like the title, I actually woke up at 5am one morning, typed it into my phone and went back to sleep lol. I love it when a piece I’m unsure about it is received well by you guys :)
