My first TtV shot. I'm a little late on the TtV (through the viewfinder) train but better late than never! I have determined 2010 to be the year I take time to expand my photography horizon so when I read this post by Hula Seventy I decided this was my next adventure. You'll laugh at me for saying this but I really had NO IDEA how these photos were taken. I thought people bought these old cameras mostly for display but that some lucky souls had found ones that STILL WORKED and used THE RIGHT KIND OF FILM to get these photos! (Don't laugh out loud.) SO, imagine my great surprise when I realized I had the capacity to do this, too!
At the moment I'm working with my Brownie Hawkeye. It belonged to my grandmother and is better shape than any other brownie I've sold from PonyParty. (ahhh...PonyParty...) I loosely rigged up a cardboard box and taped it down at the bottom to my camera using book binding tape and stuck my new Canon T1i down the hole and shot a few. They were pretty bright and I'm using the lens that came with camera, 18-55mm. I got a few tips when I posted these photos on Flickr but if you're experienced with TtV and would like to share your knowledge or some more links in the comment section, I'm sure we'd all appreciate it.
I love being this excited about a new creative challenge! I promise to share my progress for those of you who might also just NEED to get on the train.
