March 2014. Client: Harvard Business Review
I borrowed a Nikon D800 as my insurance claim is not yet finalised (see previous blog post). The sensor is too big for a lot of my uses especially when the client (HBR London) needs an image to tweet on the night. The JPEGs are 7360 x 4912 pixels which is big enough to project onto an area the size of (plug warning) an ethnically sourced Afghan Action rug. It seems such a shame to resize away all of that collected detail, but go it must right down to 600 x 400 pixels …Otherwise you will break the internet. The size of this picture (left) of Avivah Wittenberg-Cox delivering her talk on: Why does ‘gender balance’ matter for business? is 600 x 400 pixels)
A good use of the D800 mega sensor is a group shot that needs printing to 60 x 40 cm (or the size of a small fridge) as I did for the Newcastle University Law Society. I have, of course, cropped this down to 600 pixels to fit here, but take my word for it… you could read all the name badges on the original.
