Journal Writing Project: Camera obscura

Camera is latin for room, and obscura is latin for dark.(cameraobscura.co.uk, 2014)

Basically it’s where an outside image is projected into a room upside down. It’s actually something very simple and easy to make. You could make one in your own home if you’d like. I made one in the school for a project, and it was really cool to see come together. All you need is a room with a single window. You just need to cover the window completely up with cardboard or something thick so no light can show through. After you do this poke a small hole in the middle and then the outside image world be projected into the room.

The following information comes from

cameraobscura.co.uk, 2014

The camera obscura is actually thought to have possibly been used by caveman; this information is based off drawings found some caves. It wasn’t until the 10th century it was used by the arabian scholar ali, to demonstrate how light travels in a straight line. Then in the 13th century it was used by astronomers to view the sun. Later in the 16th century it was used as an aid for artists. Now in the 20th century it has become much more available, advanced, and popular. It is even a tourist attraction in some parts of the world. It is a fun little science concept that is beautiful and simple. It made a big debut in the National Geographic, in this high quality beautiful photograph taken by Abelardo Morell. It was taken in his classroom in Boston.

Sara Vettleson-Trutza is a student at Mabel-Canton High School. She is one of five area students participating in the Journal Writing Project, now in its sixteenth year.
