Wow- these are all fantastic! the beach ones really get me; they remind me of Richard Misrach's beach shots except yours are kinda the reverse- i believe he makes his prints enourmous, where yours have a very small and intimate feeling due to the process your using. (If you haven't seen his book on that series,"On The Beach", you should because i think you'd really like it!) it warms my heart when i see someone doing something really cool and interesting with photography- thanks so much crafty_dame! these are all so beautiful! keep shooting and posting more of your pics!

Your photos are so beautiful! I hope you can post a picture of you using your two cameras, as I'm having a hard time getting my head around this process. I'd love to try it out, though, as I think the results are so incredible.

I just started using this technique too! I am using a Kodak Duaflex with my Canon SX10. I built a little contraption using the instructions here: http://www.russmorris.com/ttv/

Here are some of mine!










I did some post processing with the saturation and some filters after I loaded them onto the computer. So fun! By the way, there are a ton of awesome shots on the TTV Flickr Group:

How cool is this?  I'm on my way to the thrift stores in search of an old polaroid camera!  Thanks for sharing the technique! Wink

I've been playing with this too! I love it. Yours are really beautiful, especially the beach ones. Did you do any playing with saturation and stuff on the flower ones? I also just randomly started experimenting one afternoon when I had both cameras out, so I didn't use a light blocking contraption either. I actually used an old Yashica SLR and my little point and shoot digital camera. I sort of like seeing the focusing thingie (can't think what it's called) in the middle of the pictures. At least some of the time. I think I've got an old polaroid camera lying around somewhere, so I'll definitely have to try that as well.



This is my favorite shot from that afternoon, but there's also more on my blog. http://modaveloce.blogspot.com/2009/07/ttv.html

I did play with saturation and filters with these on Photoshop. Lots of fun!
