Here are some pages from my art journal…a little bit of everything, some older, some new. I really enjoy using my photos in my journals and it is fun way to use them in another way… I am not a daily journaler. I sometimes go for weeks without adding anything to it. I wish I was more disciplined, but I have come to terms with the fact that I don’t really NEED to write about my day to day life. Words often frustrate me and I am much more likely to quote a verse from a song to express how I feel. I guess I am more a of a visual type of person. Anyhoo, here they are….thanks for looking!
I am loving this new technique…it is very Holga-esque to me which is why I am diggin’ it so much I think. The looks I get from people are pretty funny as well while taking the photos. The reason for this is probably because I have a cut up Fruity Pebbles cereal box attached to the camera to keep out stray light. It looks pretty goofy, but does the job. Maybe I will cover it in black duct tape so I can “look” more professional…ha ha! Like that will help…If you are interested in the technique, check out the Flickr group called “Through the Viewfinder” (Ttv)
I just got my Argus 75 camera in the mail and was so excited to try it out shooting “Through the Lens”. It is called TTV and typically you use a digital camera and take your photos while shooting through the lens of an old camera. I did some post processing in PS and converted it to b/w, hand tinted and a weird teal just to see some different effects. The Flickr group that I saw this on is called “Through the Viewfinder“…. Check it out if you like playing around with alternative forms of photography. They suggest shooting through the Kodak Duaflex, the Brownie Starflex or the Argus 75 to name a few….
