Fstoppers Exclusive Look at Art Streiber and Paramount’s 100th Anniversary Masterpiece | Fstoppers
"Art fired 63 frames on a Hasselblad H2 camera with the new Phase One IQ-160 back and a 150mm lens, provided by his digital tech, Eric Vlasic at With Technology. He shot the photo in three sections, and in post production, the left, middle, and right sections were merged into the final triple page spread that appeared in Vanity Fair. However, it’s important to note that all 116 people were on stage at one time. Nobody was stitched into the photo, nobody was added in post."
I've been on some high-pressure time-limited shoots as digital tech. But I can't even imagine the pressure of having only a few minutes with 116 celebrities - at the same time.
Great application for an IQ160 as well - using anything less than the best available would be such a shame when you have such a historic collection of individuals in one place (I'd assume the IQ160 was chosen over the 180 because it has a higher frame rate).
