This is “Through the Viewfinder” photograph or TTV which is defined as a picture taken through the viewfinder of a camera (typically a vintage camera) with another camera (typically a modern digital SLR camera). The resulting digital image shows the scratches, dust and inherent lens distortion resulting from the vintage lens. These effects are NOT produced in PhotoShop. Colors and contrast are the only things digitally enhanced and even that is manipulated to a limited degree.
