Inspired by Hey Harriet's Gluttonous Gulls post, I tried TtV (Through the Viewfinder) photography for the first time the other day. I used our Sony Cyber-shot digital camera to take a picture through the viewfinder of my dad's old Canon AE-1. (I love that camera, but it spends 99.9% of its time on my desk, staring at me, begging to be filled with real film and pointed at things.)
I propped the camera up on a tower made of a box of cat litter and a milk crate and took a few pictures of my yarn shelf.
I think this one is my favorite. (And this one is totally unedited! Talk about lucky!)
I also like this one because you can see the little number thingies on the side.
All the pictures came out pretty well, I think (or maybe I just like looking at yarn too much). I cropped them all to be 5x7 so there wasn't tons of black space all around the important part (the yarn, of course). I like how they're so smoky and soft. (The rest are in my Yarn TtV flickr set.)
They lack the charm Hey Harriet's scratchy seagulls have, but I very much like them.
(Those fabulous gulls are for sale in her Etsy shop if you want them. Or you can buy me #4. Wink. Wink.)
Edit: Dan bought me the third one! Now you don't have to buy me one, but you should still buy one for yourself!
