Hi Friends! Welcome to Photo Club.
For this Photo Challenge, we’re going to create our very own DIY Camera Obscura. DIY means “do-it-yourself” and camera obscura means “dark room”.
Camera obscuras were the first step to inventing the camera that we know and love today. Check out the videos below to learn more and to create your own camera obscura!
1. Welcome to Photo Club - Intro Video
2. Photo 101: The Camera Obscura
3. In Process: Pinhole Cameras
If you are inspired by this challenge and create your own, be sure to submit them to us for feedback or tag us on instagram @MOPASD
Share your thoughts about Photo Club and your experience!
