Viewfinder pictures

TC[Girl] alerted me to the cool TTV technique.
I like it, I like the pics.
This is my trusty Hasselblad, fifty years old. It was THE professional camera back then, as it still is to some now, only with their digital models.

Below, one I like not taken by me, but by Alex Pete Patellis. I found it in this Flickr group.

TtV certainly isn't anything 'New' and contemporary TtV has been part of flicker since around 2005. It's no more a gimmick, than say, tilt/shift, Lensbaby, or Macro. Simply put, it turns out to be another lens in the kit. More photographic fun.

Neat images...I went and tried with the only available viewfinder I had...let's just say that the Olympus E-P2's viewfinder isn't like the Hassy. :)

Thanks, Patrick.

I've grown quite pleased with the last two, especially the one with the red bar under the camera and the tree in the viewfinder.

This is quite a tricky technique if one does not have a medium format film camera. :-)
