CLSA Photography Group in Action: Camera Obscura Project

After visiting Colin Smith's exhibit, "Obscure Inversions", at the Art Gallery of Alberta, the CLSA Photography Group undertook a project to create and photograph their own "camera obscura" images. Experimenting with the process and working together on the "build and assembly" was a lot of fun! The Photo Group meets on the first Thursday of each month at 1:00 (computer lab).  Drop-ins and new members are welcome.
