This is What Happens When You Close the Drapes on Your At-Home Camera Obscura

Photographer Daniel Tellman is an experimenter, and his ideas often lead to beautiful results. After turning his daughter’s room into a giant camera obscura, he decided to have some fun by closing the drapes and turning them into a makeshift projector screen.

He then set up a camera in front of the drapes to capture images of the world outside passing by over the course of a day. The time-lapse video above is a gorgeous compilation of those images.

You can also do beautiful things with the drapes open. Here’s a portrait Tellman created of his daughter sitting inside her camera obscura room:
