Hello Mi Fans!

Hey friends. We’ll all you have seen the camera and most properly use it. Today is a high-resolution camera with lots of features in it. But the vintage time the camera is different. So today I will talk and take you to OBSCURA walnut camera. Artists and photographers may be interested in the Camera Obscura, which offers a modern yet traditionally finished “old masters’secret tool”. These to learn more about the unique wooden camera which can be used for drawing, painting and uniquely creative photos. The camera obscura has an internal first-surface mirror that reflects the image to the top of the box and flips the image right-side-up. This camera obscura also sports a very useful/shade and can be moved up and down or removed as needed. This helps protect and keep unwanted light off the screen. So, without wasting your time let'stalk about OBSCURA the walnut camera that draw, paint, capture the image now.


These are have built thousands of camera obscuras of various designs. And it's first started building the camera obscura design in this project in 2015, Since then, This camera built this style off and on, but stopped building it altogether last year because they were too busy running my LUCY Drawing Tool business. These camera obscuras require so much time to build that. The main two components that make this camera obscura more complex are the first-surface mirror and the lid/shade. Having built all kinds of camera obscuras in the past, making these two changes were as simple as pulling from previous designs. The mirror is cut out of the first-surface acrylic mirror, so it shatters proof. And the camera designed the lid/shade to have a friction fit that stays in place where you put it, or it can be removed when needed.

How It Works:

This camera obscura has an internal first-surface mirror that reflects the image to the top of the box and flips the image right-side-up. This is a big improvement over our last camera obscure model and allows the image to be photographed, filmed and drawn more easily. This camera obscura also sports a very useful lid/shade and can be moved up and down or removed as needed. This helps protect and keep unwanted light off the screen. You can take it anywhere and it’s easy to store or display. The lens is an uncoated spherical glass lens 38mm in diameter. The standard lens will allow you to focus on objects about 2 feet away to infinity. The ground glass screen is used for viewing the image, and the clear screen is used with a piece of tracing paper to trace the image. The usable screen image size is about 5 inches (12.7cm) square.

The Fresnel lens is basically a flat plastic lens that’s the same size as the ground glass screen. When you place the fresnel lens on the screen it gives you a fuller image. The camera obscura’s images are brighter in the center. The Fresnel lens makes the whole screen bright. Below you can see the effect the Fresnel lens has on the image. This focus cloth is white on the outside to reflect away heat and black on the inside to lessen light reflecting back onto the image. The two close-up lenses are used to focus on and enlarge close objects. The Camera Mount attaches to your camera obscura and allows you to easily take pictures and video of your camera obscura's image. This is a very useful accessory that will help you capture images. This Camera Mount is stable and even has a way to attach the focus cloth to the Camera Mount to hold it all together as you work.


Photograph and Cinematography:

As mentioned in the campaign video the camera obscura's image can be captured by still or motion cameras and will add a rich vibrant depth to your photograph or cinematography. This really captures the unique look and depth of a camera obscura's image. Every scene with the woman and the cello is actual footage from the camera obscura's screen. The video does an excellent job of capturing the obscura's image the way it looks in real life and dramatically demonstrates the obscura's ability to focus on one object at a time and jump from far to near with a simple slide of the lens.

Drawing Directly on the Image:

You can also draw directly on the image either by placing a piece of clear plastic over the ground glass and drawing on that or by using the clear acrylic glass screen with a piece of tracing paper over it. The image will project right onto your paper and look like a TV screen that you can draw on. You can also draw a grid on the screen, so you can use the grid method to draw from life with your camera obscura! Just draw a grid of equal ratio on your work surface (paper, canvas, wood panel, etc.). Then you draw the image on your canvas, focusing on one square at a time until the entire image has been transferred. Just remember that the screen size is 5inches (12.7cm) square, so if you use the tracing method your drawing can only be as big as the screen.

Camera obscura, ancestor of the photographic camera. The Latin name means “dark chamber,” and the earliest versions, dating to antiquity, consisted of small darkened rooms with light admitted through a single tiny hole. The result was that an inverted image of the outside scene was cast on the opposite wall, which was usually whitened. The subject was posed outside and the image reflected on a piece of drawing paper for the artist to trace. Portable versions were built, followed by smaller and even pocket models; the interior of the box was painted black and the image reflected by an angled mirror so that it could be viewed right side up. The introduction of a light-sensitive plate. Camera obscura is used as an aid for drawing and entertainment.
