I took this VAST photo of a fallen spruce tree over Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park, Maine, on October 1, 2014, 11:21 AM. Ice thawing in the spring every year has moved the log from its original location further up the pond. The wind was gusting to about 20mph at times, so I used a 10-stop neutral density filter to allow me to use a slower shutter speed to blur the trees and water, but still allow me to use a wide aperture for a shallow depth of field, or “bokehrama”. I focused on the middle of the tree in the pond and let everything else fade out of focus.

Camera settings: 200mm, f/4, ISO 100, 8 seconds.

Stitching data: 3 rows of 10 images.

Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, Promote Control, B+W 10-stop ND filter, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod w/ leveling base & pano/gimbal head. RAW conversion to 16-bit TIFF via Lightroom, aligned via AutoPano Giga, and blended in Photoshop.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
