Through the Viewfinder!

I finally found a vintage camera to try TtV (Through the Viewfinder) photography! In case you aren't familiar with it, TtV photography is when you use a digital camera to shoot through the viewfinder of a vintage TLR camera. It gives the photos a cool vintage feel. I used my new Kodak Duaflex IV, which I just found at the flea market yesterday for $15. Below is one of my first attempts, taking a photo of some of my other flea market finds:
Another attempt, a photo of Roo. I haven't built a "contraption" yet, this is just me shooting straight into the camera:
Oops! Below was my very first try, a photo of Ruby Roo and my mom. It didn't work out so well:
The flea market was a great success yesterday! I found lots of cool goodies, and I will take photos of them soon. I also still owe you a video of my Polaroid POGO printer and how it works. I haven't forgotten, just haven't had time to shoot video in a while...

Going back to work after a three day weekend is hard. I wish I had a job that required me to go to flea markets every day...set decorator? Cracker Barrel interior decorator? Who knows...


  1. WOO HOO!! So glad you found one!
    Watch out you'll be addicted soon. :)

    Now I get it! FABULOUS!! What a magnificent way to photograph. And looks like you are already perfecting the method. Glad you had a good hunt.

  3. Fun shots!! A set decorator would be a great job wouldn't it??

  4. That is really cool.. I like the vintage effect!
