On the final day of the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and their staffs got together to have a group picture made. I'm guessing the official photographer is the one up on the ladder and the other photographers are members of the press and other RNC attendees. As a former photographer, I know you have to take enough frames to be sure you've got one with everyone smiling, eyes open and all the faces clearly visible. With the size of this group, that can be challenging. Looks like Reuters photographer Mike Segar and Getty photographer Chip Somodevilla found a good vantage point as well.

Republicans gather in Tampa, Florida to officially nominate Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, as the party's candidates for the 2012 presidential election.

Tonight Mitt Romney takes the stage to address the convention and has the chance to reshape the arc of the presidential campaign. When he accepts the party's nomination tonight on national television, he'll become the official GOP nominee.

Last night, Paul Ryan officially accepted the nomination to be the GOP nominee for vice president.
