Voices in the Park

Voices in the Park, a fund-raising concert to benefit the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, was held on September 15, 2012 at Stanley Park in Vancouver BC.

I volunteered my services to create a gigapixel photo of the crowd and integrate it with GPXtag. Concert goers will be able to find themselves and their friends, then tag and share on Facebook and Twitter. From the GPXtag interface, people will also be able to donate to the Sarah McLachlan School of Music.

Microsoft Company Meeting 2012

I was asked by Kristy Springer of Radarworks to shoot a gigapixel photo of Microsoft’s Private Company Meeting held at Key Arena in Seattle, WA on September 13, 2012. The gigapixel photo was designed as a game for the employees to find a Windows Phone in the crowd.

The shoot was difficult because of the many limitations and restrictions imposed by the production company contracted to stage the event. For a company meeting, I assumed that lighting would be good and bright. However, the venue was lit much darker than a typical concert. There was insufficient lighting to shoot a gigapixel photo. The camera couldn’t find any contrast to focus properly in certain areas. To solve the problem, I manually triggered the camera as the GigaPan EPIC Pro moved from one point to another. In spite of the difficulties, the image turned out well. Radaworks and Microsoft were pleased with the final image.

Since it was a private event, I wasn’t allowed by Microsoft to post the image on this site.
