Michelle Phillips - Through the Viewfinder
Through the Viewfinder is a type of photography that uses old Twin Lens Reflex cameras popular in the 50's and 60's and using them with a modern digital camera. You take a picture of the image on the glass viewfinder. You use a tube to block out the light between the modern cameras lens and the old cameras viewfinder. The pictures have lots of dirt and dust on them from the old glass of the camera to give it an aged and vintage look.
Hipstamatic is an application on the iPhone that tries to recreate and old cheap plastic camera that was created in America in the 80's. The application uses different types of digital lenses, films and flashes to create different colours and textures on the final picture. The final pictures are quite striking and different than using a normal digital camera.
I am a self-taught photographer using a Nikon digital camera, my iPhone and different old cameras to take my photos. I have lived in Armley for about 7 months and I love stumbling across things to take pictures of. This is the second time I have shown my photography publicly after previously having my photography shown in the Waterfront Centre in Belfast.
