Camera Obscura

Camera Obscura

Been covering classes for the head of the photography department this week. We agreed that I could teach image formation. So I trashed his room by turning it in to a Camera Obscura and had the students sit around in the dark. This is a photograph taken by a student of the image projected in to the room. I have worked on it in Photoshop (flipped 180 and mirrored for a more dramatic result- I’m not correcting the perspective).
It was a good lesson and obviously there was a lot more to it than have them sitting in the dark staring at a dull image projected on to the wall. Hopefully the learning will have sunk in!
