In recent years, increased bandwidth and Flash video players have led to an explosion of video on the web - but still photography still offers a lot, especially when you can take advantage of the same bandwidth and large screen size that web video assumes. Launched in June of 2008, The Big Picture ( http://boston.com/bigpicture ) a news photo blog, has resonated with its growing audience, and the large volume of feedback points to the continuing power of still photography - the power to evoke emotions, capture iconic moments or make an event feel closer, more real than even video in some cases.
