    For 15 years I taught and conducted at the New England Music Camp where a 200 person or so group portrait was taken twice every summer by a local Waterville, ME photographer. The guy used a 50+ years old banquet camera (though that was over 20 years ago) and the portraits were wonderful. At least one counselor would run from one end to the other during the several second traverse of the group the camera would make (in concert clothes in the middle of a usually hot and sunny afternoon after a big noon meal). The contact prints were sharp as a tack and wonderful.

    I guess one can take digigraphs and stitch them together ...but there's simply no way it's the same thing..NO WAY!

    Bravo.

    I, of course, would have just used the 35mm Horizon.

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    Wonderful shot Matt! It will be something cherished by all. I'd love to do that with my camera too. It would make a nice Christmas gift, one for each family group in the pic.

    thanks all for the kind words of encouragement.... Ive never been so nervous about and it and so glad I got my part of the family reunion right. Such a relief.

    Not sure yet how many copies. I know a majority of them will not want platinum/palladium prints but likely Ill make 4-5 pt/pds and then scan the print in and make some less expensive repros to send the rest.

    I have to say I love the concept that this print has been made and given the archival stability it will more than likely be around long after all the pictured have died, with the little "June 2006 Family reunion" penciled in the bottom. Kinda a nice thought.

    again, thanks for all the kind words everyone.

    Hi Matt,

    It is such a fantastic image, and a lot of hard work went into it. Thanks for sharing. BTW, I know it was a stressful event for you, but I don't think you give yourself enough credit - your work is excellent, and you have really mastered your equipment.

    Hey Matt,
    I normally groan at seeing other people's family portraits, but now I think I need a banquet camera. Thanks for corrupting me!
