Totally fascinated by this story of Vivian Maier:
Anytime I see old photos in an antique store I can’t resist them. And I wonder about who was behind the camera……
I recently borrowed this old TLR Pho-Tak from Lisa and brought it out to show Boo how Vivian Maier would have taken her photos. The TLR camera is held at about waist height and you can see the image through the hood on the top. It’s only in focus if you look at it from that distance:
I cut a piece of cardboard tube to attach to the end of my DSLR camera so Boo could capture what she was seeing through the TLR lens:
We could only take a few before we lost the sunlight:
“Mommy taking a picture of me taking a picture of her”
I love the grainy, flawed photos that result from looking through the old, scratched lens.
I’ve got to make the tube to the camera light proof…..and then we can play around with it more.
