Yellow will be a challenge for me.

It’s not a color I gravitate towards but am starting to appreciate it’s cheerful pop more & more.

This shot was taken ttv, shot with my Nikon through the viewfinder of my vintage Kodak Duaflex.  It’s a process that is extremely satisfying to me.  Combining modern technology with the vintage I adore.

In order to make it work you need to shoot through a “sleeve”.

There are many more fetching contraptions out there but this one does the job.

Here’s a link to the  TTV Flickr Group for more information and inspiration.
