Coordinated by RIT’s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, the signature Big Shot “painting with light” annual night-time community photography event is an RIT innovation that began in 1959. Volunteers are recruited from wherever the Big Shot is scheduled, and several thousand people of all ages—RIT/NTID students, faculty and staff as well as members of the local community—come out with flashlights and fortitude, warm or cold, rain or shine, to light the chosen venue and help make a spectacular image of something amazing. This year’s Big Shot was right here at High Falls, Rochester, N.Y.
