About This Group

This is a group dedicated to photographers with a passion for the technique and vintage qualities (dirt, dust and scratches included) of Through The Viewfinder (TTV) photography.

TTV photography is when you use a digital camera in conjunction with a vintage TLR camera such as a Kodak Duaflex or an Argus or any other camera that has a viewfinder large enough. The photograph is composed through the viewfinder of the vintage camera, then a photograph is taken of the viewfinder with the digital camera.

Some tools of the trade:

The image currently representing the TTV Group is "Faerie Queen ": by Jules Campbell, winner of the TTV Group “People” Challenge.

In honour of the TTV Technique, this group is dedicated to true TTV’s only and digitally created faux TTV’s will not be accepted.
