Each week, I’ll be posting a new full resolution image that you can zoom into and pan around for yourself.
With my current set-up, every photo I take of a watch starts off as a 100 megapixel image. I shoot with the highest resolution sensor on the (consumer) market – the Phase One IQ3 100 medium format digital back.
Clearly 100 megapixels is a little on the large size for Instagram. Each photo coming out of the camera is 11,608 x 8,708 pixels, whereas the resolution limit for Instagram is 1,080 x 1,080 pixels. Given that I typically am posting a 4:3 aspect ratio image, that means Instagram is using well under 1% of the captured resolution.
To demonstrate the resolution that is actually captured, I often post a “full frame” image, followed by one or more “macro” crops from that image at 100% resolution.
For a while now, people have been asking if it is possible for me to share the full frame at full resolution, and that is what this new section on my website will enable me to do.
Another #alangesoehne #zeitwerk macro shot. Crop of the full image showing the whole movement. You could print the whole frame 6 feet wide and stick your nose up to the print and this is how it would look 😛
Ok. Time for a macro. And when I say “macro”, I of course actually mean a crop form the photo shared previously. The entire image is at this level of detail. If anyone has a building big enough, I’d be happy to show the whole image 😛 1:1.2 macro shot. 100 megapixels. 21 image focus stack. #Zeitwerk #Lange
