Meet my 1940s Ansco Rediflex viewfinder camera. This little guy has been a good mate to me over the last two years, coming on many a shoot, capturing the world and transporting it back in time using the TTV Technique.
This viewfinder will be the main subject and theme of my Project 1/52, a year long assignment created by Johanna Brunet capture one photo per week for 52 weeks. Around 50 photographers have taken on this venture, all choosing a theme and subject and challenging ourselves to create unique images each week with it.
I attempted a similar project just over a year ago, to take 3 photos a day for a year, but that fell apart quickly.. 3 photos a day is way to ambitious for someone who spends a lot of time behind a computer, editing!! One a week.. now that’s a lot more realistic and motivating 🙂

Day 335 – dusty viewfinders

Day 335 - dusty viewfinders

I’m reorganizing/cleaning my computer room/office/whatever and these cameras have been patiently waiting on a desk waiting their new assigned places. A bit of dust has coated them during their wait.

Clearly I’m going through a black and white, earthy noir moment. This song plays through my head when I look at this. So does this one for some reason.

I’ve been doing a pretty decent job of staying off the computer, which explains unanswered messages. Sorry for that, but I really need to keep myself offline especially now that college is starting again in a couple of weeks. I’m not feeling that photographic at the moment though…once classes begin I’ll probably be more motivated. I feel really bad about not being able to follow the work of others as much and I hope I can catch up as much as possible when I can! I don’t like missing out on your beautiful photographs even though being off the internet has been really good for my peace of mind.

Yesterday I modeled for the amazing Andrea Pun and I can’t wait to see what she came up with! I got to play fashion model, which was absolutely nerve-wracking since I’m not in the least modelesque, but we had a wonderful stylist and make-up team and though I was nervous it was very fun. Check out one of the shots here!

It took a while to set up for this shot. Last week I collected tons of large, heavy branches while out walking and dragged them home in the rain, only to have them be disposed of by the gardeners. Another week passed before I managed to collect another sufficient batch! And today, what with the overcast weather, I figured I should give a bit of TTV action a go.

Tomorrow I will be off on a plane for a 5 day little trip! I’m bringing my camera(s) and computer along, so I’m thinking there will be much hotel photography fun.
