Sunshine would also give me an opportunity to experiment further with my cameras. I bought a new book recently - 'Photocrafty' by Sue Venables. It's a book stuffed with projects and inspiration and some cunning make it yourself accessories. One in particular caught my eye, let me explain... I am currently looking to buy a TLR camera which takes 120 film - still weighing up the options at the moment. I have my Uncles old Baby Rolleiflex which is beautiful but takes 127 film. This is nigh on impossible to get hold of now. Sue has a project by which you can use a TLR camera with a DSLR and an elegant looking cardboard tower to create 'through-the-viewfinder' pictures. Apparently it's a whole genre of its own!
So, today I spent some time in a Blue Peter type homage and turned an old shoe box into my own TTV tower. After all the time spent making it I tried it out and was more than disappointed that it didn't seem to work :-( However, I thought I'd upload the trial pic anyway and crop and rotate it and...voila!
