The above pictures were taken using a technique called "Through The Viewfinder". I discovered, finally, how this was done a few weeks ago, and immediately I jumped on the concept as I've always been intrigued by the images this technique produced. I can't tell you how excited I was to ascertain the method behind the photos I have admired for some time now. I quickly obtained my very own cameras to try this out for myself, luckily ebay helped me with that feature.
What you see below is one of the new cameras with the 'contraption' attached to it. "What's that?" you say, the contraption helps to keep out light. Essentially what you're doing is taking a photo with a digital camera through the lens of another camera. Which is how you get that semi-distorted antique feel. What do you think about these types of photos?!?!

*Many thanks to Cody for making the 'contraption' for me!!
