Camera Obscura by Dennis Stein




The camera obscura is the simplest method of image-taking. A small hole is made in a box and the image coming in is inverted on the far interior side of the box. By placing film or photographic paper on that side, the image can be recorded and seen later on. I have used pinhole cameras with film in the past.

Recently, I purchased a pinhole lens for my Lumix GX-1 digital camera. These images here are the result of holding the camera in my hands for a few seconds of exposure. The great part about digital is that I can see the results immediately and alter the variables for a better exposure and composition.
