Official 2016 DNC Photo Was Shot with a 100-Year-Old Camera

On the first day of the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, attendees were asked to pose for an official photo. The video above shows how that photo was captured by photographer Abbas Shirmohammadi using a 100-year-old camera.

Shirmohammadi is the 4th generation photographer behind Panoramic Visions, which has been in business since 1984. The camera he used has captured many past Democratic Conventions as well as the past 6 presidential inauguration ceremonies.

For the panoramic group photo, all the attendees in the Wells Fargo Center were asked to look toward the center of the hall at Shirmohammadi and completely freeze. The camera, mounted on a tall tripod, was then panned in a circle to capture the entire hall.

2. Too bad he doesn't charge 100 year old prices.

The "official photo" taken with a 100 year old camera is 180 dollars.

Fuck that.
