Through The Viewfinder (TTV) photography is a technique where a digital camera is used to shoot through the lens of an older TLR (Twin-lens Reflex Camera). The resulting image has a vintage feel to it, caused by distortion, vignetting and dust on the lens. The effect can also be achieved by digital filters, but the majority of the time they won't produce equally realistic results.
To take these photos, I used two cameras: a Sony a290 DSLR and a 1930s Voitländer Brillant medium-format TLR. I connected the lens of the DSLR to the TLRs viewfinder with a cardboard tube. The setup is easy to achieve, provided you have two cameras.
The gallery contains photos from three trips I made. I went to two local parks and a field just outside town. The effect is very satisfying, and gives my photos an old-school feel.
