No, but there are other techniques.

Work Step by Step

No light rays physically pass through or converge at the location of a virtual image, so a light-sensitive medium such as film cannot directly record an image when placed there. However, the light rays that emerge from the image location can be collected by a converging lens and brought to a focus upon a piece of film or a sensor. That is, a camera can take a picture of the virtual image, and you can see the virtual image with your eye.
