The 2007 Big Shot photograph of Pile Gate, in Dubrovnik, Croatia, captured on April 12.

Kelly Downs of RIT University News has been in Dubrovnik, Croatia, for the ďBig ShotĒ photo project. The RIT community can follow along on her Croatian adventure April 7-15. Downs is providing a window into life in Dubrovnik as well as preparations leading up to the ďBig Shot. Regular blog entries on The Tiger Beat Blog and audio podcasts are posted at (see "Latest Podcasts").

RITís School of Photographic Arts and Sciences worked closely with RITís American College of Management and Technology in Dubrovnik to coordinate this international photomaking event, which took place April 12.

The Big Shot requires hundreds of volunteers to paint the subject area with flashlights and camera flash units while RIT photographers shoot an extended exposure.
