Summer Days and Basketball





Front Yard Fun
August 2008

My iTunes:  Bread of Life by David Glenn

Hey everyone!  Sorry to post so late!  Hey, at least I am posting!  More of these fun shots.  I have been experimenting a lot with my cameras and really enjoying it!  I took these today when Sam and I shot basketball outside for a little bit...Lucy even joined us later!  Can you tell I am enjoying this?

So basically, these shots are a type of photography.  Who would have thought?  It is called TtV (Through the Viewfinder).  Go ahead...google it.  It's there.  You basically take a picture with your digital camera through the viewfinder of a vintage camera.  Fascinating and fun!  My dad helped me out a ton by taking some measurements for me to be able to do this.  You have to build a contraption to fit over your camera to take care of glare and he was nice enough to help!  Thanks Dad...you're the greatest!

Have a good weekend everyone!

Very cool, Anna!

So I've decided not to buy a mac right now (with the money that I don't have), but the next time something happens, that's it.

Toni said...

Ok - I googled - I'm hooked. I just have to do this. LOL

Anna said...

Robert said...

That is quite a cool idea. Does your dad sell these little contraption thingies?

I'm loving these "through an old full-vue" shots... I'll have to revisit this again on one of my outings.

Wow I love it! Now I have to go google :) Thanks for sharing how to do this. Those photos are so wonderful.

Mark said...

This is very cool, and of course I am going to try it.

You still manage to put your Anna touch on these, and that's what really makes them shine. It doesn't matter what kind of piano Mozart sits down to play -- he's still Mozart. Don't let that go to your head, of course. It's just an example.

Jody said...

Wow very cool shots!! I will have to read up on this style of photography. Of course I have loads of "old" pics I took back in the day that probably look similiar lol.

I did take this pic Specifically with YOU in mind. Would you take a peek?

These are very different. To be honest, I'm not sure what i think about them yet! but they are certainly interesting...!

Laurie said...

These are fun. I would love to get my hands on an old Rolleiflex to do this with. It would be really cool.

The atmosphere is very extraordinary in these shots. It would be fun to see a photo of the camera combination - that alone must be a sight! Do you have to hold them up against each other, or do you have some kind of a system to fix them together so that photographing is a bit easier?

I LOVE THIS! My dad is an old camera fanatic and I may just have to borrow some to try this. Great idea.

This is a wonderful technique. I gotta try this sometime.

Factoring is provided by financial institutions, for example banks and individual factoring brokers. It is a
form of asset-based financing, where the factor provides funding based upon the values of a borrower’s
accounts receivable, i.e. corporate debtors. The receivables are purchased by the factor rather than used
as collateral for a loan. This means that the ownership of receivables shifts from the seller to the factor.
Factoring generally includes more than just financing, and it also includes funding and collection (Booth and
Cleary, 2007).

Having been promoted to group captain in 1940, he was posted to Singapore in June 1941 to take charge of all RAAF units defending the area. He earned praise for his efforts in attacking invading Japanese forces before the fall of Singapore, and for his dedication in evacuating his men. He was later appointed to a senior operational role with the Royal Air Force's 2nd Tactical Air Force in Europe, where he saw out the rest of the war. In 1947 he was promoted to air vice marshal and appointed Chief of Staff at British Commonwealth Occupation Force Headquarters in Japan.Small Business Websitepromo counters
