I took this VAST photo of the boardwalk in the Wild Gardens of Acadia in Acadia National Park, Maine on September 30, 2014, 11:39 AM, while teaching a fall photography workshop in the rain. I shot it at 200mm f/4 for a very thin depth of field, sometimes called a “bokehrama”. It has a 3D appearance where objects close to the lens and far away in the distance are completely out of focus, similar to looking through a View-Master when you were a child. It is about the perspective of a 50mm f/1.0 lens (or 80mm on medium format), and has the characteristic look of a large format camera but with a much higher resolution.

Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, Hoya Pro1D circular polarizer, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod w/ leveling base & multi-row panning head. Shot at 200mm, f/4, ISO 800, and 1/60 shutter speed.

Camera settings: 200mm, f/4, ISO 800, 1/60.

Stitching data: 5 rows of 7 images.

Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod, leveling base, & multi-row pano/gimbal head. RAW conversion with Lightroom, aligned with PTGui, and manually blended via masks 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 currency and 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.
