Overview[ edit ] Former National Geographic photographer Charles O'Reara resident of the nearby Napa Valleytook the photo on film with a medium-format Mamiya RZ67 camera while on his way to visit his girlfriend in While it was widely believed later that the image was digitally manipulated or even created with software such as Adobe PhotoshopO'Rear says it never was.
Several years later, Microsoft engineers chose a digitized version of the image and licensed it from O'Rear. Over the next decade it has been claimed to be the most viewed photograph in the world during that time. History[ edit ] Charles O'Rear in Helena, Californiain the Napa Valley north of San Franciscoto visit his girlfriend, Daphne Irwin whom he later marriedin the city, as he did every Friday afternoon.
He was working with Irwin on a book about the wine country. He was particularly alert for a photo opportunity that day, since a storm had just passed over and other recent winter rains had left the area especially green.
My God, the grass is perfect! The sun is out; there's some clouds," he remembered thinking. He stopped somewhere near the Napa — Sonoma county line and pulled off the road to set his Mamiya RZ67 medium-format camera on a tripod, choosing Fujifilm 's Velviaa film often used among nature photographers and known to saturate some colors.
Were they looking for an image that had no tension? They offered O'Rear what he says is the second-largest payment ever made to a photographer for a single image; however he signed a confidentiality agreement and cannot disclose the exact amount.
So the software company bought him a plane ticket to Seattle and he personally delivered it to their offices. Although O'Rear had not manipulated the image in any way, the company has admitted to cropping his original image slightly to the left in order to better fit the desktop and making the greens stronger.
Image of the hill in July O'Rear is adamant that, other than Microsoft's minor alterations to the digitized version, he did nothing to it in a darkroomcontrasting it with Adams' Monolith: I didn't "create" this.
I just happened to be there at the right moment and documented it. If you are Ansel Adams and you take a particular picture of Half Dome and want the light a certain way, you manipulate the light. He was famous for going into the darkroom and burning and dodging.
Well, this is none of that. He notes the "dreamlike quality" created by the filtered sunlight on the hillside as distinguishing the image.
Although the company had never told O'Rear or anyone else, Clark thought he could guess. It may also have been chosen because it's an unusually inviting image of a verdant landscape and one that promotes a sense of wellbeing in desk-bound computer users.Wine And Dine: 4 New Casual Spots In Seattle, With A Tasting Room And PizzeriaLooking for the Seattle wine bar of your dreams?We've found a lineup of eateries and a vineyard worth checking out.
