Updated Portrait Attempt

This week I practiced (just like I said I wanted to!) my TTV Portraits. They are coming along nicely but then again this image was photographed around 4 in the afternoon...

I want to be able to photograph in a low light situation with no extra light source and still have a crisp figure for the portrait. I'm not sure if that means I need to make a better tunnel to shield the viewfinder of my Duaflex or what... 

Either way I have been continuing my toy project too. Here are a few examples of those images:

TTV Portrait Attempts

I adore photographing still life photos but I've always enjoyed environmental portraits. I did them for years when I was in college. Here I am trying to master the art of TTV with portraits and it is so much more difficult! There are many variables (with the subject moving and then your TTV contraption and your digital camera) that makes this quite that task that I was to figure out before the end of summer.

These are just a few attempts and are not anything brilliant- just tests really. 

Be sure to check out the progression in the weeks to come. I am hoping to work out all of the kinks soon!

Random TTV's

This last month or so I have been in a little creative rut. I made a goal for myself to make AT LEAST one photograph a day to try and ignite my creativity. This is what I can up with for today.

P.S. I am still working on the toy project but I do not want to exhaust my options or start photographing the same toys over and over so I am working on building up that little collection. I will post some new ones soon!
