Student uses unique image for University Day presentation

UMPI student Samantha Riding used pictures taken in the “pin-hole” camera room 311E of the UMPI Art Department during March and April for her University Day presentation. This kind of early camera was often referred to as a “camera obscura.” The image is a naturally occurring optical phenomenon when light rays that are reflected off an object pass through a small hole or aperture resulting in an image of that object that is inverted and reversed when those light rays strike the wall behind. This idea was further developed with the introduction of light sensitive paper and glass lenses into the camera we know in the 19th century.
