About 40 Rochester Institute of Technology students got their chance to take a “big shot” of the world's largest stadium Saturday night.

The students met up with 175 Dallas-area RIT alumni to provide light for the image of the Cowboys Stadium.

More than 2,400 people from across the country and around the world came out for RIT's 28th annual Big Shot photograph.

The Big Shot event began as a way to teach students about flash photography.

Since RIT started its Big Shot project back in 1987, photographers have captured several different landmarks, such as The Alamo, The U.S.S Intrepid and the Royal Palace.
