1474 Megapixel Camera

You used to be able to get lost in the crowd, but not anymore.  Double click on any area in the picture to bring the person closer.  Or, just click the mouse and use the mouse wheel to bring them closer.

This is a photograph of 2009 Obama Inauguration. You can see IN FOCUS the face of EACH individual in the crowd !!!
You can scan and zoom to any section of the crowd.  .  . Wait a few seconds.  Double click anywhere   . And the focus adjusts to give you a very identifiable close up.
The picture was taken with a robotic 1474 megapixel camera (295 times the standard 5 megapixel camera).  Every one attending could be scanned after the event, should something have gone wrong during it.

March 16: Keep it Solid, Keep it Sharp...Using A Tripod
by Roy Woelful
March 30: Understanding and Explaining Judging by
Dennis Golin
Ettore's Mini Session on Still Life Photography on Jan.
19 shared his expertise in manipulating metals and other
materials to create many of his photographs. He did not
use digital or computer manipulation on any of the photos
and he used available light and a reflective source.
While not planned, Ettore's presentation was a great intro
to Chris Moore's presentation that followed on Flash
Big Thanks to Ettore for an enlightening session!
