These were taken with my Canon 30D through the viewfinder (ttv) of an old bubble lens reflex camera.

These are awesome!  I've been looking into Lomography, is that what this is?  I have looked and looked and I still am not even sure what Lomography is....

Those are all very interesting!

What does through the viewfinder mean?  I know through the lens, but haven't heard ttv before.

I think I need to get out w/ my camera(s) soon!  I've got an Anscoflex & Cannon Brownie Starmite II both twin lens.  As well as a few modern (thus sort of more practical) ones like my Nikon D50.

Happy shooting!

Thanks you guys   Cheesy

Through the Viewfinder (or through the lens, same thing) is literally a picture of the viewfinder of an old camera. you make a contraption to block light (like a cardboard tube or something), aim your old camera at the subject, then stick your real camera into the contraption and take a picture of what you see in the viewfinder.

I'm not sure about Lomography, but I think it has to do with a specific brand of camera, whereas this can be done with any camera that has a big enough lens to focus on.

Here's a page with info and a tutorial: http://www.russmorris.com/ttv/

And here's the flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/throughtheviewfinder/

Also, if you search for "ttv" on Etsy.com, you'll find some really great prints for sale (by others, not me)

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Those are quite striking.  With the qualities that your process imbues, they almost look like memories of photos.  I'm especially fond of the one of the cats, which at first I thought were llamas.  I generally enjoy a close crop like that, especially if that's the framing on the original.
