New View Of The Inauguration (McClatchy-Tribune photographer and cool story about getting the shot)
Hi, Photo Group! I'm not a photographer, but a friend who works as a department editor at McClatchy told me about this particular shot and the photo-geek coolness of it. Enjoy!

"He took photos from previous inaugurations showing that there is a lot of equipment there (speakers, mikes, teleprompters) so a camera there would not be a distraction," Bridges told News Photographer magazine moments after the inauguration wrapped up.

"When the stand was being built Chuck went out and did test photos to show to the Joint Congressional Inaugural Committee and the Senate Press Photographers Gallery to show how dramatic the images could be."

The camera was a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with wireless transmitter attached and mounted inside a Pelican case customized by Kennedy. It was mounted on a camera plate that was screwed into the platform and then mounted on a Bogen arm. The camera was wired via Ethernet for transmission through a DSL line at Kennedy's position on the balustrade above and behind the platform. The camera was trigged via a hardwire to eliminate radio interference.

McClatchy senior photo editor Linda Epstein said that Kennedy's remote shot with a wide-angle lens is closer than any camera has been before during the inaugural oath. "It's a shot that's never been gotten," she said. The pool photo was sent to all McClatchy newspapers and the McClatchy-Tribune News Service.
