This is a technique I'm really interested in. It's called "Through the Viewfinder” (“TtV.”) Take an old medium format twin lens reflex camera with a waist-level viewfinder, like the Kodak Duaflex. The ones without matte viewfinder glass are cheaper, lighter and easier to use. Make a "contraption" out of cardboard, Pringles cans, mailing tubes, whatever. Stick your digital camera in the top of the contraption and take a picture.

Now, I’m using the OM-D E-M5 and the 12-50mm on the “macro” setting. The E-M5 is ideal for TtV. I really like how the viewfinder and lens affect the quality of the picture, and I like the challenge of composing for a square aspect ratio after spending so much time with rectangles. I like using what was considered a cheap consumer camera over 60 years ago and the combining of old and new technologies. But mostly, I like the idea of showing the viewer more of what the photographer sees when the picture is taken. Like the Lensbaby, I know this isn't to everyone's taste, but I'm pretty fascinated by the technique and the results really appeal to me.
