Snow and cold temperatures didn’t keep hundreds of people from descending on downtown Rochester to light up High Falls Sunday night and help make Rochester Institute of Technology’s 29th Big Shot photograph a wintertime success.
More than 600 volunteers, including nearly 100 RIT students and 150 alumni provided the primary light source for the Big Shot image while RIT photographers shot an extended exposure of one of Rochester’s natural and iconic spectacles.
Since RIT started its Big Shot project in 1987, university photographers have captured such landmarks as AT&T Stadium (formerly Cowboys Stadium) in Arlington, Texas; The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas; the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York City; and the Royal Palace in Stockholm, Sweden. More.
