The complexity of these photos, which are printed at 120 inches, make them awfully difficult to execute, and sometimes Rose spends a week in the field only to return home without a single image. Currently, Rose and a team of technicians are working on building stabilizing equipment for the helicopter ride to produce even clearer, sharper images going forward.
