My friend's work, Spark, in South Tampa

I was finally able to get away for a weekend and visit some old high school friends down in Tampa this weekend. It was great to see how everyone was doing since a year ago and where they're going these days. I was also able to expieriment with some photo tricks that I want to expand on and use with a few clients in the future.

ne of those tricks was the idea of camera obscura. The idea is to turn a room, any room, into a giant pinhole camera. By blacking out the light source and constricting it to only a small hole, you are able to project what ever is on the other side of that window in the room. It affectively turns that room into the middle of a camera body. It's a lesson on how light travels, which is a straight line. Everything in the room will be upside-down and reversed.  It's so interesting because that's how our eyes work as well. Our brain ends up making it make sense to us!
