More Playing--Through the Viewfinder (TtV)


I've been meaning to mess around with this process for ages. Now seemed like a good time, while the kids are home and I'm doing more photography.

There's a great Flickr group for this process--you line up a photo through a camera that has a large viewfinder (this is an old Kodak Duaflex)--then take a photo of the image in the viewfinder. It's necessary to construct some kind of a box that blocks out all extraneous light. I didn't use the new camera for this--used my Fuji Finepix E550. All the dust on the lens is part of what's so cool, although I may try to clean it a little bit...
