This must have been quite a view for the rail workers many years ago when the Ogden Mine was operational. Per the Morris County Park Commission: “This is the largest park in the Morris County Park System, encompassing 3,346.07 acres of beautiful near-wilderness and recreational areas.”
I recently purchased a “gray market” Canon 5DsR dslr camera brand new in box on ebay for $2100. That is incredible savings as I see the USA version selling for $3700 today (March 4th) on B&H!
Several friends have asked me if I bought a 50 megapixel camera so that I can crop more often. Quite the contrary, I hope to not crop AT ALL! My goal is to achieve the most detailed images I can in-camera and to offer massive prints of landscapes, wildlife, macro, and possibly even some street photography. I do think it is important to “go big or go home” with visual arts especially when the subject matter has the potential to create an immersive experience.
I have been underwhelmed by the impact of some of my past photography exhibits. I have often printed to 12″x 18″ from previous 18 megapixels camera like my trust old Canon 7D. While I was happy with the image quality, I find that typical photograph print sizes are easily lost in the shuffle and quickly forgotten to most viewers. If you truly believe in your technique and your subject matter you must push your activity to the limit and rise above. When there is an opportunity to overachieve, why not do so?
The final pixel county of my merged wintery image is 21227 x 8469 pixels. If printed at 300dpi for extra find detail that could be a projected size of 70″ x 28″. A 150dpi print resolution which can still render a nicely detailed print I could print to 141″ x 56″! Does the average person need an 11 foot print? No, most decidedly not. However, the local hospital, college campus, or hotel lobby might be looking for some original nature art to spruce up their facility.
