Last night was a remarkable night for HPS. Firstly, our speaker was NASA’s senior contract photographer Bill Ingalls presenting his incredible photography work.
The talk was live from from Kazakhstan using Skype. HPS President Graham Roberts had been testing the technology in recent days with Bill’s assistance. The photos show Bill on a 2 metre projection screen, while his high resolution images were projected on to our 4 metre main screen by a second projector. Graham’s laptop with the Skype link can be seen (bottom right). Bill could see and answer the audience’s questions via a small digital camera.
The technology worked and this means the Society will be able to invite other international photographers to present their work.
Thank you Bill, it was truly out of this World!
