transparent solargraphy camera prototype [my pinhole cameras series #13]
On August 6th, Anton Orlov published Introducing CLERA – 1st Transparent Camera!, a very interesting post about a transparent lens camera.
After reading the post and having some discussion with several friends I decided to build a prototype of a transparent solargraphy camera with the aim of following, if it works as expected, the creation of the solargraphy image in real time.
I am posting here some photographs of the model and its construction as well as a picture of the camera placed in location on the balcony of my home pointing towards the Sagrada Familia building in Barcelona.

I will keep you posted of the outcome!!
