A few years ago, I stumbled across a type of photography that was really intriguing to me. I kept seeing these square images with ghostly, haunting qualities to them- it reminded me of film photographs, and of the slides I used to look at when I was a kid. Check out this group on Flickr to see what I'm talking about. I found out that this photography was called Through The Viewfinder, or TTV. The photographer took their camera and aimed it at the viewfinder of an old film camera, like a Kodak Duaflex. So, it's essentially a picture of whatever the Duaflex (or other camera) is aimed at. I fell in love with the idea and had to try it out for myself. I purchased a Duaflex on Ebay, which set me back a whopping $20 or so, and started to construct something that would block the light. I found this amazing tutorial from Russ Morris and I have to tell you, it was so much fun!!!
Here are some of my resulting photos:
