Camera Obscura

'Faust' was published in 19th century, which known for romanticism and realism movements. Realism in art seeks to perfectly reflect reality. The Faust is presented as a renaissance man, where camera obscura was found and used in visual arts in terms to get the lighting and shadows right. The technique of camera obscura, made painting look very realistic and 3 Dimensional. Therefore I decided to do more research, about it which would let me not just to use the technique that was relevant in both renaissance and 19th century, but also relate it with 3D.
