There are times when you just can’t get the desired angle with your TTV camera and the only option is to use your DSLR and edit later. With this image, I did just that! I love the how the “TTV framing” adds character to the image. The “fuzzy” /foreground/background (depth of field) gives the impression that a vintage camera …

He knew, if he kept trying he’d get it and find his balance. I know I have an even more fitting image from when my youngest son was trying to Learn without his training wheels [ just couldn’t find it ]. He rode around for the longest time with ONE training wheel on. He just couldn’t let go! He never gave up …

As many times as I have crossed this bridge, this has got to be one of my favorite shots! The lines and symmetry play so well with the perspective. It’s as if the tension cables are coming from the sky.  My plans for this image are to make an engineer print of this and attach it to a large canvas for my living room! …

“Sky Tension”

So my husband took the paved road, which we never really took, but it was rainy, and we hoped to avoid as much mud as possible. As always, I …

Some photographers are true die-hard TTV’ers and do very little editing.  While there are others who edit a lot and even “fake” the TTV process. On this blog I’ll share images that I’ve taken it into Photoshop and have made a TTV image. With this image, the “flying swings” was taken with my digital camera. I also had acquired a different box camera and had …

    Click Here To Learn More –  The city of Charleston has got to be one of my favorite places to photograph! So many alley ways, backyard gardens and so many wrought iron gates to peer through. In this one particular TTV image, when I photographed it, I had my flash on and it bounced off the metal frame of my Argus 75 that I was using. It created a different border, than the one we usually see after  processing a TTV image. It puts a twist on this image and played well with the iron …

     Click Here To Learn More- TTV photography has a lot to do with perspective. With today’s digital cameras, most of the time we have the camera close up to our eye and looking forward. We move our body and sometimes contort it to get the right shot. A TTV camera blends “old school” cameras with today’s digital cameras. Looking down into the bubble glass finder with a digital camera takes little coordination, but can be challenging finding the right …

   Click Here To Learn More- How often do you LOOK UP? I think in this fast-paced, technology driven world, we either look straight forward or were looking DOWN at our SMART PHONE DEVICES!  For me, this is true, I look at my phone a lot and I’m trying so hard to disconnect to devices like such. As a photographic artist I do get out and about with my bulky camera and TTV contraption to capture what we pass by everyday, because were looking down! I just happen to be looking down my TTV …
