On a less serious note this Tuesday, I have been playing with my new/old camera. I have been enamored with TTV (through the viewfinder) photography and the beautiful effects that can be achieved and decided to give it a try myself. I think I am in love.
I had looked online for directions on how to construct the black tube that is suppose to make TTV easier and tried to make a couple-not my cup of tea! Even though I followed the directions and what I ended up with was cumbersome and clumsy for me to use. I put it away for a while and then went back to it last week fully determined to make my own version so I could keep experimenting and Voila!
May not be pretty but it works….
It took a little dismantling of my handy dandy Duraflex (I removed the cover to make sure it wouldn’t interfere with any images) and a little creative finagling to get it to work but…it did!
So, I started playing with a few objects I had laying around and most of the images were no great shakes. Once in a while though, serendipity steps in and something kinda cool takes place….
However, this one worked much better as a square. I love how certain distortions and shadowing can happen and adds a certain mood to the image. This is way too fun and, ultimately, that’s what matters to me 🙂
Hope you are off to a great Tuesday!
