This past weekend was the 4th Street Art Festival in Bloomington, Indiana, and I was curious about this technique that artist Leah Cavanah used for her photography. TtV photography is actually more popular than I thought, but it’s just taking a photograph through the viewfinder of another camera. So, I went ahead and just tried it out for fun. I used my Rebel XT and shot through the viewfinder of my Diana + medium format toy camera. Mine are nowhere near as refined or crisp as most TtV photography you can find, but it’s definitely a fun/experimental process. The unexpected results of the process are most rewarding.
