First try at "TTV" shots...


I just got my Argus 75 camera in the mail and was so excited to try it out shooting "Through the Lens". It is called TTV and typically you use a digital camera and take your photos while shooting through the lens of an old camera. I did some post processing in PS and converted it to b/w, hand tinted and a weird teal just to see some different effects. The Flickr group that I saw this on is called "Through the Viewfinder".... Check it out if you like playing around with alternative forms of photography. They suggest shooting through the Kodak Duaflex, the Brownie Starflex or the Argus 75 to name a few....

This is so cool. Please, post more of your photo experiments with your new camera when you get the chance. I would love to see more!

The TTL photos you took are amazing! Looks like a fun technique. Are there directions on how to do it? I have some old brownie cameras (they don't work)...can I do it somehow with one of them?
Thx.
