Y3 classroom became a camera obscura
A huge thank you to Mr. Kerrigan (Saša’s father) for coming into the Year 3 class last week to convert our entire classroom into a camera obscura. Miss Blundell and Mr. Kerrigan balanced precariously to cover every source of light into the classroom with cardboard, duct tape, black electrical tape and black paper. Mr. Kerrigan then made a small aperture onto the cardboard.
It’s true what they say about a picture telling a thousand words. Check out Mr. Kerrigan’s long exposure photo that he took with his camera of what we could see projected onto the wall of our classroom. Obviously we only saw in black and white and not nearly as clearly as Mr. Kerrigan’s camera could. But we were definitely awed, especially when we could see an upside down Mr. Blease dancing and waving to us in the carpark while moving along our classroom wall as if in an old Charlie Chaplin movie!
Mr. Kerrigan also brought in an older style camera to show the students what it was like to use a roll of film. When they realised that you could not delete photos on a roll of film they were mortified
