In 2008 I began experimenting with digitally creating the TTV effect. TTV or “Through the Viewfinder” is the process of taking a picture with one camera through the lens of another camera. Typically, it creates an image with a distinct dark border and some lens distortion with dust and imperfections. My overall design aesthetic tends to be “vintage inspired” so I find the TTV process particularly appealing.
