People from across the country and around the world came together at the world’s largest domed stadium on March 23, 2013 to help make Rochester Institute of Technology’s 28th Big Shot photograph a success. More than 2,400 volunteers, including RIT faculty, staff and students who traveled to Texas from upstate New York and alumni from the area as well as across the country, provided the primary light source for the Big Shot image while RIT photographers shot an extended exposure with Cowboys Stadium completely dark for the first time in its history.
Since RIT started its Big Shot project in 1987, university photographers have captured such landmarks as The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas; the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York City; and the Royal Palace in Stockholm, Sweden. More.
