Rooms with a View

Camera Obscura by Katherine Yaksich

Camera Obscura

I love this National Geographic article about Abelardo Morell’s camera obscura.   An inverted image of New York City’s Central Park in fall splashes across walls and ceiling in a photograph using the technique of camera obscura.  Darken a room, make a small opening for light, and let the outside come in.   Photographer Abelardo Morell’s camera obscura turns darkened rooms into magical landscapes.  I will attempt my first camera obscura this weekend at Ira Lippke Studios and share the results soon.  In the meantime, check out the full article at National Geographic.
