homemade camera obscura (images)
Jun 11, 2011

Rather bored this weekend so thought that I'd try something a bit different.

I turned my spare room into a temporary camera obscura (i.e. a giant pinhole camera) and then photographed the projection with my sigma 10 20.

Worked rather well I thought, certainly worth the few hours of work and small price 10m of black tape and 20 black rubbish bags for making the room light tight. Images inverted in post processing.
