Here is some examples of feedback from the obscura gathered across different projects and events.

”We had the most fascinating day working with Sam White and his camera obscura.  Our pupils were challenged to think about how camera’s work and images are made with light.  It was a very hands on day full of learning opportunities.  Sam has a great approach with children, they responded really well to his questioning techniques and practical help.  I only wish the day had been longer so that we could have learned and experimented more! ” Zoe Batemen, Head of Art at Braunton Academy
