How to: Camera Obscura


Camera Obscura?
(Latin; camera for “vaulted chamber/room” and obscura for “dark”)

If you haven’t seen one on the internet or in real life, you should see one. I have seen one on YouTube, and it was so surreal like magic!  Basically, it is an optical device that projects an image of its surroundings or its external view in a screen or in its internal view. It is also synonymous to a “darkroom” because it literally uses a pitch black room to project images clearly and vividly.

And suppose you ask, “How is this possible?”, “How can I make one for myself?”
Here is a video from StugsNotOnDrug’s YouTube Channel that will show you how to make one, if you are basically bored or just curious about how the process goes about.

I would want to make one for myself… but my room view is self-explanatory. Pretty much just lame and boring. (I really wish I had a Camera Obscura worthy room view) 😦

It’s just too cool to miss out on…. But anyways….

Thanks for reading!
