My name is Robert Holmes. I live in Miami, Florida and I have been a Professional Photographer for more than 20 years. They call me DigitalBob because I was the first member of our Camera Club to begin shooting with a digital camera. Even though, I was actively shooting commercially with a digital camera (3 megapixels to start with, I still have my first Nikon D1 camera), I was always looking for ways to get much higher resolution pictures, for making very large prints. In this quest I began shooting large format, that is with a camera that uses a 4x5 inch piece of film. Very much like the camera used by Ansel Adams. Once I became proficient at that I moved up to a camera that took pictures on an 8x10 inch piece of film. When the images on this very large size film was scanned it produced a very large, high resolution digital image. However, this was a very expensive process, the film cost $10 a sheet, the cost to process the film was $5 a sheet and the scanning & touch-up consumed hours. Further it was getting harder and harder to buy the film and film processing companies were closing down.
One day I stumbled across Gigapan which now gives me far superior images and I Love taking these beautiful panoramas.
