Obviously he isn't although he's good fun to play with, but I thought he looked like a stuffed toy in this photo.

This was taken with a digital camera THROUGH my vintage Kodak Duaflex, hence the dust and the black frame.

I know these aren't to everyone's taste as they aren't technically perfect but that's not what it's about.

Composing the actual photo is very difficult, the camera is held a fair distance from the viewfinder of the Duaflex which means the actual image on the back of the digital camera is very small, added to the fact it's held at waist level and added to that the fact that everything is back to front, so when you move right the photo goes left, by the time you've got your head around having to move in the opposite direction to what your brain is telling you, your subject has usually moved!

I have processed this to give it an old 60's feel.

Never thought I would see a TTV on here. I guess you won't get too many votes for this, but I love this technique. Got myself a "double-eyed" SLR lately to try this as well. The colours really fit this technique here. Well done. Greetings, Elke

Fascinating technique . Well done getting this shot at all, with all its difficulties. (AP had an article recently on how to produce this effect in PS, which is REALLY pointless!) You get an UP vote.

Thank you!

Yes I don't see the point of doing it in PS, the fun is in the effort of trying to do it with an actual TLR camera.

If you look at my upload yesterday of the trees you can see the contraption that I built onto the camera.

Very cool and you certainly have got the 60's look very well and also well done on getting this in camera.

I love the feel of this image, it has an old fashioned faded quality and the dust and scratches add to the atmosphere. Very nice point of view and all round super picture.

Watcha Anna, I had a go at doing it digitally, got the results up on my pages, I scanned my viewing screen from my Bronica ETRS and worked it on that, not too impressed but it was a bit of fun. I'm going to have a go, when I've got time, to fit something around my WL finder and give this a proper go. Had a look at your trees you took using the contraption, looks good as B&W; but can B&W be put forward as a TTV which is trying to replicate what the photographer sees? Sorry, waffling, good pic.

I don't think it's about replicating what the photographer sees, it's about taking a photo through the camera, and depended on what film you used in the old days and so there's nothing wrong with processing it in ps to get the same results, if you used B&W film you'd get a b&w photo, that's not how you saw it Wink

Have a go, it's really good addictive fun Smile
