Interesting idea....you should take it even further, with more lens layers. Nice processing too.

no processing, these are all straight shots just focused on the viewfinder of the old cameras and got the effects from the dust and scratches from them.
well i guess i did turn a couple into black and white

TTV...Through the viewfinder, is an old technique that was very popular here in the early days .

It had a bit of a cult following for a while, it's very fun to do and everyone should give it a go .

Before the Composer came into being, it was quite the trick to focus using the Lensbaby bellows on the viewfinder of the second camera if hand holding both cameras .

Constructing a black out tube to cover the viewfinder helps preserve the contrast and is helpful for shaper focus.

A sort of return to the early days of large format camera shooting without the upside down image to deal with !
