Doing St. Louis , TtV style
9 May 2012
Recently a friend (JPG member) posted these amazing vintage looking photos. Upon contacting her she proceeded to fill me in on the art of TtV.
TtV (through the viewfinder) is an artful form of photography using two cameras. I use a Kodak Duaflex ( twin lens reflex 1948's) a Sony 650 D-SLR, with an 18x55 lens and a magnifying filter.
There are several web sites that can get you started. You will have to construct a tube (I call it a contraption) that covers the top of your Twin Lens camera.
Just Google TtV and you will find that there is a whole new population interested in this form of photography. There is sure to be a tutorial for you.
I am addicted to this artful form of photography.
Thank you Carol Holmes for the camera and the time you spent teaching me this artful technique.
