I had done the photos for free since it is a function for the local library and the school system and one of my wife's projects at work. All I ask for was photo credit, which it my suprise I got. Here is the billboard and the orginal image.
    Congratulations my friend! Now that's a big print!

    Makes my 16X20 seem right puny....

    You Go Larry!
    :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    The biggest I have ever done comes close, at 3'x5'.
    I did it back in college, in a class that was called something like "Large Format Photography", where we printed our stuff big rather than using a large format camera.

    Hey Brian

    This is actually in Arches Nat'l Park. I took it right from the side of the road, not too far into the park.

    And Larry, thanks for the comment!

    Re: What's Your Biggest Print?

    Congrats on the big shot Larry. Good of you to help the community too.

    I used to do some 36x50 or 60 once in a while for presentations at work, but they weren't that good a quality when done on our plotter.

    Re: What's Your Biggest Print?

    While in college I worked in a lab that had a big ink jet printer that printed from rolled paper that was 30" wide. I would go in on Saturdays when the laid back manager was working and rock off huge prints, ahh how I miss those days. I've also done some big six by six foot black and white printing using liquid light.

    I always have wondered how much a billboard costs to print and what kind of technology they use to make them.

    Re: What's Your Biggest Print?

    That really rocks that you had access to the equipment to make that size prints. I wish that I could tell you more about the billboard process, but I just provided the picture file and the billboard guy took it from there.

    Re: What's Your Biggest Print?

    I have to jump in here...

    The biggest single large print I've made was 44" X 192" for a movie company.

    I did 9 single prints for an artist at 44" X 168"....(they got hung in the Smithsonian Museum at an exhibition)

    And my very largest project was a 144" X 144" mural in sections for another artist.

    In case your wondering I own an Epson 44" 10000CF printer.

    What was the subject on a print with those dimensions?

    Re: What's Your Biggest Print?

    Best I can do is this one which was put on a 20x30 canvas. Does it count that my daughter is on a huge poster at Target???



    Fantastic shot there Old Timer, it must be a great honor having your name up on a huge bill board

    Great shot Tink. Love it. It reminds me of an old W. Eugene Smith phot that is one of my very favorites of all time. I think the poster counts as well.

    Re: What's Your Biggest Print?

    Someone else told me that too Old Timer. I have searched for it but cant seem to find it. I love this shot too, have no idea how I got the idea to do it, it was a spontaneous decision when I took it. If you know where to find Smith's shot I'd love to see it

    Thanks for the comments
