V2-Curling Composite _ver2

A composite photograph of teams Ferbey, Middaugh, Koe, Simmons, Martin, Gunnlaugson, Stoughton and Howard competing on Dec. 6, the opening night of the 2009 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Olympic curling trials in Edmonton. Journal photographer Ryan Jackson took more than 300 photos in half an hour, then chose the best 48 to blend together for this composite.
To order a copy of this picture, call 780-429-5580 or go to edmontonjournal.com/reprints.

This photo is best viewed BIG which is why I’m so happy the Journal gave me a FULL COLOUR PAGE for this photo as a commemorative poster.  Pretty cool!

I was asked to create an image to illustrate how many letters to the editor we get every year. We have a filing cabinet with over 13,000 letters in the office so I spent an afternoon setting up lights and moving everything around to make it perfect.  As you can see from the image above, I used three speedlites a strobe and a 40×60″ reflector to light the image.  I tethered my 5D to my laptop to preview the images. I also used my handy dandy Canon 24mm f1.4 lens at f11 / ISO 100.

The image I submitted to advertising only had levels and white balance done. The one you see above however was photoshopped a lot more using the “Dave Hill Look” work flow.

This is the second time I have used my new O-Flash which is a very
cheap knock-off of the Ray Flash.

One of my favorite lighting tricks is to make a boom arm out of a
flash stand, a monopod and a bogen superclamp. Boom arms
really open up possibilities for light placement and you
probably already have a light stand and a monopod.

Update: And here’s the result!
