Taking the Time

Sorry for the lack of post lately. One of my new years goals was to get organized and that's taken a little more of my time and energy then I really expected.

I've also been trying to make more time for things I love to do but just haven't had time for, like baking, writing and collage. I was recently at the book store where I spotted a book of Thomas Allens pulp fiction art. His technique involves cutting characters part way from their covers so it looks as if they're coming out of the books and then photographing them for a 3-D effect. I really love how you feel as if your looking into the picture, and how some of the characters are "interacting" with one another. I stood there for ages just looking at that book amazed and awe-inspired and decided I'd try my own take at this but with TTV photography. I shall post the results soon so stay tuned.

Latest Obsession-Same Old Hijicks-Brand New Year!

Happy New Year all!!! I'm so glad to do away with 2007, great as it was for me, I'm all about the new, new, new!!! Speaking of new... TTV (Through The Viewfinder) photography is my latest greatest obsession for the new year. I'm still a total "newbie" but I love some of the shots I've taken so far.

If anything I enjoy the results a dash more due to the extra work involved. For those as clueless as I was until a few short months ago, TTV involves shooting with camera through the view finder of another camera (preferably a vintage camera) for a dramatically romantic effect, depending on the lenses the results are endless, and I am in love. Check out the flickr TtV group for amazing photos and a MUCH better description: http://www.flickr.com/groups/throughtheviewfinder/pool/
