Interactive 360 Virtual Tour of Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose

Posted by ryanjackson on Aug 5, 2013 in 360 Panoramas, 360 Video, Interactive, photos

I’ve covered the Big Valley Jamboree several, times, now, and this year I wanted to create a virtual tour that showed how BVJ is more than just music. There’s partying, bull riding, music workshops, more partying, and of course country music.

I shot several still image panoramas with my Canon 5D-Mark III and the handy dandy Canon 8-15mmL fish eye lens.

I also shot two 360 videos using six GoPro Hero cameras on a stick.   Everything was stitched together using PTgui and I used KrPano as the viewer.

Click here to watch the virtual tour. Click the right and left arrows to go to the next panorama.  If you click on the little globe button you can see a map of the area with dots.

The more I do these, the easier they get. I literally put this together in one day. So much cooler than just a photo gallery.

Speaking of photo gallery. Here’s a photo gallery of Big Valley Jamboree 2013 too!

Interactive view of Princess Diana’s Tiara

Posted by ryanjackson on Feb 4, 2013 in 360 Panoramas, photos

To help promote the Princess Diana exhibit going on at West Edmonton Mall , Lucas Timmons and I photographed her Tiara and made an interactive 360-degree gallery.

I shot 36 pictures straight on and 36 pictures at a 45-degree angle using a motorized turntable.

Lucas then put the images together into an interactive spinning player using the very cool and lighweight jQuery Reel.

I used a spinning serving tray from Ikea and covered it in black tape. I then used a small continuous servo motor http://www.phidgets.com/products.php?category=22&product_id=3202_0 connected to a Phidget server controller http://www.phidgets.com/products.php?category=11&product_id=1061_1 and my laptop. I timed the servo so it would turn the table 10-degrees, wait 5-seconds for me to take a picture , turn 10-degrees, wait 5-seconds for me to take a picture, etc. for 360-degrees.

Battle River Railway Interactive Tour

Posted by ryanjackson on Dec 8, 2012 in 360 Panoramas, photos, Soundslide, video

Everyone loves a good story. And everyone loves trains. Combine the two and you get the Battle River Railway story.

Basically CN Rail was planning on shutting down the longest stretch of straight line track in Alberta. This would leave many towns and farmers without a railway which would cost money for the farmers and hurt the small towns along the tracks.
Instead of giving up, a co-operative was formed to purchase the tracks and a train engine and run the railway themselves.
It’s a nice David vs. Goliath kind of story that hits close to home if you grew up in the prairies like me.

I overheard Journal reporter Marty Klinkenberg and an editor talking about this story and jumped on it as I knew it would be a perfect opportunity to use a new storytelling technique I’ve been working on.

Think of it as a truly multimedia slide show incorporating stills, video, audio 360-panoramas and educational interactivity. You can play the interactive tour here. It works great on desktop and iPad but there are still some bugs with iPhone FYI.

Interactive Beer Trivia Game

Posted by ryanjackson on Sep 12, 2012 in 360 Panoramas, Game

While working on the beer story with Lewis Kelly I came up with the idea to make an interactive beer trivia game to go with it.
Click here to play the game.
Lewis signed out some beer books from the library and made a list of fun trivia facts.
I then wrote the code for krpano using this example as a starting point.

 

I photographed almost all the bottles at Sherbrooke Liquor. They have hundreds of brands available as single bottles so I didn’t have to open any boxes.

I setup two strip boxes and one strobe under the white background. It took about three hours to photograph all the bottles.

So thirsty!

Portraits and Panoramas of the Alberta Legislature on its 100th Birthday

Posted by ryanjackson on Sep 11, 2012 in 360 Panoramas, GigaPan, photos, portrait

The Alberta Legislature building turned 100 years old this year and I was put on the fun project of profiling people who have worked at the Legislature for a long time. I also wanted to capture an epic image of the building from a different perspective.

I used a GigaPan Epic Pro with a 5D-Mark II and a 50mm f1.2 lens for the Panorama.

Here is my camera mounted on the roof of the Annex building. I set the Canon 1D Mark-III with a 24-105mm lens to take three photos every five minutes. One normal exposure, one -1 stop and one +1 stop. The camera shot RAW and had a 32GB card in it. After three days I just picked the best photos.

Here you can see my lighting setup. I used a large octo-box to give a soft light on Ruth. I had a hair light behind her with a grid on it to narrow the beam. I had one more flash on the ground to pop a little light onto the watering can. This helps separate the can from her black pants. Also notice I got her to stand up on a chair. This was so she would be at the same height as the windows. Otherwise I would have to shoot down low which is unflattering for most portraits.

Here’s me in action. Photo by Karen Kleiss

Here you can see the Paul C. Buff PLM reflector in action. Notice how BIG and net NARROW the light beam is. Normal umbrellas spread the light in all directions where this reflector gives big light that is directional and falls off sharply.

Here is how the background lights were setup. Just normal reflectors on the strobes. Journal reporter Karen Kleiss helped move all the books.

Here is my lighting setup for the portrait of June. I hid the two background lights behind the pillars.

Up on the roof of the Alberta Legislature. One of my favorite things about working for the Edmonton Journal is getting access to cool places that are normally off limits.

For the portrait on the roof I just used two Alienbees Einstein strobes at full power to balance the sun.

Finally check out http://www.edmontonjournal.com/news/insight/legislatureat100/360legdome/index.html to see a 360-degree-view of the off-limits palm room in the Alberta Legislature.

For the 360-degree panorama of the palm room I suspended my 360-degree camera with three 20-pound-test fishing lines. The camera weighs less than five pounds so I had 55-pounds of safety.

I was so terrified to suspend my camera six stories above the ground but it payed off!

Interviewing politicians in 360-degree video

Posted by ryanjackson on Apr 10, 2012 in 360 Panoramas, 360 Video, photos, video

As I said in my last blog post I want to get closer to the holodeck in Star Trek. Here is my latest attempt:

Click on the above image to see my 360-degree interview video. 

I wanted to present my newest election video for the Edmonton Journal in an interactive way similar to the last election video I did  but also combine what I’ve learned from making 360-degree video.

Filming this video was pretty easy and also pretty hard!

I chose the local coffee shop Cafe Rista, 14213 103 ave. in Edmonton because it was quiet during the day and also the owner Simon was super accommodating.

He even let me put marks on the floor so I could keep the chairs and table in the exact same spot for each interview.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I spent a day in the coffee shop shooting test videos with myself in the chairs. I used this time to build templates for stitching the images and also work on the code for KRpano.

For a camera I just used my Canon 5D Mark-II with the Canon 8-15mm fisheye lens at 8mm.  I kept the table and chairs in the same position for every video and the stitched them together after.

I used a little slider thing from an old enlarger to offset my lens a bit so I would find the no-parallax point. This helped make stitching the images together easier.

It was very important that I clamped the camera in the exact same spot for all of the interviews and also that the tables and chairs were in the exact same spot every time.

Here’s me interviewing Premier Alison Redford.  The wonderful and talented Journal reporter Trish Audette actually came up with all the smart questions that I asked :)

For sound I used my Sennheiser wireless lav mic and I had my trusty Olympus recorder as a backup. I used my LitePanels MicroPro as a fill light.

After interviewing each leader separately and in different chairs, I used Final Cut Pro to align all the video clips. I then batch exported all the video clips and used Quicktime Pro to extract the video files into image sequences.

Once all the video was converted into still images I used PTgui to create a template and then batch stitch all of the still images into panoramas.

I them recombined all the panoramas back into video files using Quicktime Pro and synced the audio back.

I explain the process a little better here though my workflow has vastly improved since then. It pretty much changes every time I do a 360-video.

I used the amazing KRpano for displaying the 360-degree video. The HTML and Flash panorama viewer is very powerful. Pretty much anything is possible.

In total there was 31 minutes and 50 seconds of video which works out to 45802 panoramas that I had to stitch together.

Needless to say I’ve been sitting in front of my computer way too much lately!

This has certainly been my most complicated video to date but also one of the most fun an innovative to create.

It’s not the holodeck… but we’re getting closer! :)

And here’s how it ran in the paper. I was sure that the caption explained that this was created from four separate images and it said “Photo Illustration by Ryan Jackson”

Ryan Jackson speaks on 360 Video, Panoramas and Immersive Multimedia

Posted by ryanjackson on Mar 20, 2012 in 360 Panoramas, 360 Video, Ryan's Life, training

I was invited to speak at VendAsta Technologies about the work I’ve done on 360 panoramas and video. It was really cool because I’ve talked dozens of times about photography and video but I’ve never given a full presentation about 360 panoramas.

As I explain in the video , I’ve always been fascinated with the Holodeck from Star Trek and we are slowly getting closer and closer.

As a photojournalist I always get to go to places and see things that most people don’t and I find that 360-degree panoramas with audio or 360 Video can help give you the same experience.

At the pace of technology today. What’s stopping us from being able to download a 360-degree video into our brains in the future?

We’re getting there faster than you think.
