Medical Portraits Gigapixel

(Gizmodo.com) We’ve seen stitched together “gigapixel” photos made of a billion pixels before, but they tend to be reserved for huge landscapes. Photographer Daniel Boschung has taken absurdly high resolution methodology and applied it to a much smaller area: The human face.

oschung’s “Face Cartographies” are captured by a robot that’s been programmed specifically for the task. Each 900 megapixel face map is comprised of 600 individual photos, taken by a Canon 5D Mark II outfitted with a 180mm macro lens. The process of taking all of the photos required for the the final composite image takes about 30 minutes to complete. That’s a long time for the models to sit still!

What do you see deep in a human face at a resolution of 900 million pixels?

Indeed, it’s more than we can see with the unaided eye, since the photos are higher resolution than what your eye can see.
