    Awesome Panaoramic View of the Inaguration

    From the Photographer...

    How I Made a 1,474-Megapixel Photo During President Obama’s Inaugural Address

    Wow.

    I covered my first inauguration and what an inauguration it was.

    Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States in a ceremony on the west front of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, DC.

    Before Tuesday, I had photographed five presidents and covered big events including the Olympics, the Super Bowl, and concerts like Live 8 and Live Earth.

    But this one was the biggest.

    It deserved a big photo.

    I made a panoramic image showing the nearly two million people who watched President Obama’s inaugural address. To do so, I clamped a Gigapan Imager to the railing on the north media platform about six feet from my photo position. The Gigapan is a robotic camera mount that allows me to take multiple images and stitch them together, creating a massive image file.

    My final photo is made up of 220 Canon G10 images and the file is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels. It took more than six and a half hours for the Gigapan software to put together all of the images on my Macbook Pro and the completed TIF file is almost 2 gigabytes.

    Use the controls to zoom and pan around the photo. You can also double click to zoom in and double click again to get even closer.

    Funny that guy put so much effort into that. I could do a shot just like that with my HP PhotoSmart camera (which got stolen ). It would actually stitch the photos together in a matter of moments.

    DAMN, I miss that camera...

    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."
