Big shot

RIT

RIT has completed another one of its “Big Shot” photographs, with the latest venue in Western New York.

On Saturday night, about 825 volunteers including 72 RIT students and 100 alumni traveled to Old Fort Niagara in Youngstown, New York.

All of those people were needed to provide the primary light source for the Big Shot image while RIT photographers shot an extended exposure of the historic site.

The 33rd “Big Shot” community photo project will focus on a historical site next month.

The subject of Rochester Institute of Technology’s photographic project this year is Old Fort Niagara in Youngstown, Niagara County.

The Sept. 29 event will capture a nighttime image of the fort, which has a past that spans more than 300 years.
