Be a part of the TEXAS SIZED PHOTO of Cowboys Stadium!
Chances are you’ve heard the saying, “Everything’s bigger in Texas.” This will certainly be true when Rochester Institute of Technology’s longtime community photography project known as the Big Shot captures a spectacular nighttime photograph of Cowboys Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, in Arlington, Texas, on March 23, 2013.
The Big Shot project relies on the participation of hundreds of volunteers to provide the primary light source for the image while RIT photographers shoot an extended exposure. It’s a signature event for RIT and is led by the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences, which is nationally recognized for its degree programs.
The Big Shot is often described as “painting with light” because volunteers are asked to “paint” or shine their light source onto a particular area of the landmark while the photograph is taken. The light sources are either handheld flashlights or camera flash units. Thousands of volunteers are expected to come out to participate and “paint” the exterior of Cowboys Stadium, illuminating the largest domed stadium in the world. Cowboys Stadium will be RIT’s 28th Big Shot.
