I'm going to try firing up the blog again for 2016, especially the nature/landscape side of things. It is in desperate need of a redesign so I will be working on that while shooting for KSTV. Unfortunately the slideshows on older posts have been disabled by flickr. You can find all of my work in my gallery.

I used his instructions to create my first fake TTV image:

I used the texture from my previous post and Jessica Bell's retro wash action.

Here are some Holga/TTV style examples from Etsy:

Stoopidgerl has some great examples. My hands-down favorite is her "Rainbow Crackhouse".

Here are some nice ones from HouseofSixCats:

I also found this and thought it was pretty interesting:

Who would have thought we would spend a fortune on lenses only to try to adapt them to get the look of a toy camera?!

And of course there is a Flickr group for TTV enthusiasts:
