Large Format Works

What exact­ly is a large for­mat work?

When I start­ed with dig­i­tal pho­tog­ra­phy in 2005 (with at the time what was a Canon 1DS Mark II) — I blend­ed stitch­ing of images into some of my ear­ly large for­mat works, long before the Giga­pan or mod­ern day stitch­ing toolsets.

Most of my large for­mat works are works in excess of 500 megapix­els, often reach­ing into the gigapix­el range.

I con­tin­ue to pro­duce large for­mat works even in 2023 how­ev­er I have moved from a mere 17mp cam­era in 2005 to my 61mp cam­era in 2023.  The com­pute pow­er has changed immense­ly as well as I orig­i­nal­ly start­ed with a top of the line Pen­tium 4 and now do my pro­cess­ing on a Thread­Rip­per.  Obvi­ous­ly the speed and ease of the work in 2023 is vast­ly different.

This gallery is to exhib­it the large for­mat images specif­i­cal­ly, they may or may not be in oth­er gal­leries on the site.

See the post Large For­mat Imag­ing, how large is large? for an idea of how large the source files can be.
