Beware: I am about to get my geeky on. So, I bet your wonder what in the hell is up with the photos. Ch-ch-ch-check it out.
Long story sorta short. I bought a picture on esty and I was so inspired by the style of photography, I just had to know how it was done. So, I did what anybody does, GOOGLE IT! I thought I wasn't going to get any info but as always, I was wrong, way wrong. This style of photography, if you don't know, is called 'through the viewfinder' or TtV.
'Through the Viewfinder photography is defined as taking a picture of any subject through the viewfinder of any camera with another camera.'
You take your digital camera and focus it through an old camera's viewfinder. In my case, an old Kodak Brownie that I had sitting on a bookshelf. Here's where it gets a little complicated because you need something to block out the light between the two cameras. I used black construction paper, others use cereal boxes, other use specially constructed black foam forms. You should also use a macro lens but I used my macro setting on my camera. There are photoshop actions to get this type of look without using two cameras but what fun is that? It's actually very challenging, you have to really consider the picture and then set up the shot. It's definitely not point and shoot.
If you are interested you can find info: here, here, here , and here.
Also, the 'other daughter' Julia has set up her own design blog and is in the process of setting up her own etsy shop. She can do custom banners, blog layouts and all that other stuff us non geeky, un-techie old folks can't do.
