Big Shot
big shot
The 2011 Big Shot took place at the National Museum of Play at The Strong and was documented in high definition by WXXI. Photographed on the evening of May 5, 2011, more than 1,000 volunteers convened at the museum and used flash lights to "paint the building with light" as photographers from RIT´s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences captured the scene using an open shutter and the dramatic technique of timed exposure. The RIT Big Shot: Painting with Light documents the history of RIT´s annual nighttime photography project. Go here to purchase your DVD copy at the special RIT alumni rate of $15! wxxi.org/bigshot/ritalum
