Today’s lenses are a combination of positive and negative lens elements. A positive lens has convex surfaces that force light to converge. A negative lens has concave surfaces, diverging light. An image passing through a lens reaches the focal plane upside down and reversed laterally, just as it does in the human eye. The reversed image on film is easily corrected when printing. In humans, the brain translates the reversed image on the retina in the “correct” manner so we see the scene right side up.
