VAST is a collective of photographers producing “exceptionally high-resolution fine art photos” that boast thousands of megapixels in resolution.
The breathtaking images are created with meticulous attention to detail — photographers capturing a huge number of images to create each final scene. A panorama that might take just 3 frames to capture on your phone would take these photographers over 300 to produce.
“We’ve had to innovate many new techniques to be able to create many of our ultra high-resolution VAST photos at that beautiful sunrise/sunset time so we can have technical and aesthetic merit in our photos,” says Dan Piech, the creator of VAST.
The team utilizes long lenses, up to even an 800mm, to capture every minute detail. Such techniques eliminate chromatic aberration and boast reduced noise as well.
