The sensory calming quiet room at Our Lady of the Prairies Elementary School in Edmonton on Jan 8, 2016. The room is a getaway from the noise and buzz of an ordinary classroom, an important break for students who may feel overwhelmed by a busy day. It is also a place for students who have outbursts to calm down in private before returning to their peers in class. Video by Ryan Jackson, Edmonton Journal

This video was a fun challenge to make. There were so many interesting lights and objects to shoot but the room was very small and dark. I used my Dedolights to shape and splash light on objects to bring out details.  For example, I beamed light on the chair, the toy on the floor, behind the tree and the painting on the wall. If lighting is done right you shouldn’t be able to tell it was lit at all.

I loved making this video! Ryan Ford is a really cool guy and lives up to his nickname.

The interview was shot with a Sony FS7 with a Sigma 35mm f1.2 and a Panasonic GH4 with a Canon 100mm f2.8L Macro.

I lit the interview with six LED lights. A Dedolight DLED4.1 as the key on the right, LEDgo 560C as a fill on the left, Dedolight 2.1 and LedZilla as rim lights, and a couple small LitePanels as background detail lights.

We arrived at the gym an hour before the interview to set everything up and dress the background.  All the action shots were lit with a bare bulb Dedolight 4.1 set to tungsten.

Colour graded in Final Cut Pro X with the Filmconvert plugin.

Canada’s First Ice Castle in Edmonton from Ryan Jackson on Vimeo.

I worked the night shift on Christmas Eve for the Edmonton Journal. It’s typically pretty slow on Christmas Eve so I took the opportunity to make a cool video of the Ice Castle being constructed in Hawrelak Park. It was also a chance to use my new Kessler Second Shooter system which allowed me to get super smooth programable shots. There’s no way I could have made such smooth shots hand held. Especially while freezing my butt off!

Christmas Stocking Illustration for Edmonton Journal front page

Posted by ryanjackson on Dec 24, 2014 in lighting, portrait

Every year the Edmonton Journal runs a Christmas related photo on the front page on Dec. 24th. This year we photographed Journal reporter Alex Zabjeck’s adorable kid Arjun.
For the image of him looking in the stocking, I placed a small LED video light inside to give the glow on his face.

Here's a look behind the scenes. I had a strobe above Arjun with a beauty dish wrapped in a white blanket. There is a golden reflector to the left with a small tungsten light to warm up the photo. The biggest challenge in lighting this photo was balancing the strobe with the tiny LED christmas lights. Hence needing to wrap the light in a blanket to make it dimmer.

Interactive Video of 2012’s Top 10 News Stories for Edmonton Journal

Posted by ryanjackson on Dec 26, 2012 in DIY, Interactive, lighting, photos, timelapse, video

I got the assignment to film 10 Journal reporters and editors discussing the top 10 news stories of the year in their own words.
I decided to use some of the gear and techniques I’ve been developing to shoot and present the video.

Rather than shooting 10 separate videos and presenting them as 10 separate clips, I put them all together in one YouTube video and used annotation buttons to make the video interactive. You can jump back and forth between clips and choose which stories you are most interested in.

Since the videos are mostly just “a person sitting at a desk talking” I decided to up the production value a but and have the camera constantly moving.

I built a Pan/Tilt/Slide robot for doing timelapse videos in the summer. I used it for the World’s Longest Soccer Game Video but now I would need it for video instead of stills.

I made it programmable so I can tell it to start in position A, then take X number of minutes to move to position B. The device consists of three stepper motors and three Phidget stepper controllers.
Everything is programmed in Python. Those years spent in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science come in handy!

I used my hacked Panasonic GH2 for the video and my Olympus LS10 audio record with a Sennheiser wireless mic for sound.

Here is my Pan/Tilt/Slide robot that I've been working on for months. I added 8:1 ratio pulleys to the motors to make the movements smoother and slower. I also surrounded the motors with plastic to dampen the sound. (not shown here).

Here is my Pan/Tilt/Slide robot that I’ve been working on for months. I added 8:1 ratio pulleys to the motors to make the movements smoother and slower. I also surrounded the motors with plastic to dampen the sound. (not shown here). The design is constantly changing which is why I haven’t blogged about it much. Though I guess I should blog about all the changes!

I made a DIY teleprompter using cardboard, tape and my iPad running the Teleprompt+ app. This was my first time recording reporters with a teleprompter and it made my life so much easier! The subject doesn’t have to fumble for words and some say it makes them forget about the camera a bit.

Here is the very rough version 1.0 of my Pan/Tilt/Slide robot controller.I plan to eventually control everything with an iPad app that I'm writing so there's far less wires!

Using the Pan/Tilt/Slide robot added a ton of work to the setup for each video but it really made the videos more visually dynamic. It also moved the camera much smoother and consistent than if I moved it by hand.

I certainly wouldn’t do this for most news video but a fun feature like this was a perfect opportunity to test out some new tools.

Portraits of Beer Brewers and Pub Owners speaking out against bribery

Posted by ryanjackson on Sep 12, 2012 in lighting, photos, portrait

The only thing I like as much as making portraits is drinking beer. Portraits of people who make and sell beer? Perfect!

Journal business writer Lewis Kelly wrote this great news story about bribery in the Edmonton beer industry. Very interesting and it effects anyone who buys beer!

Click the link below to read the story.

Neil Herbst, owner of Alley Kat Brewing Company, which is celebrating its 18th year in business with a $300,000 expansion.
Canon 5D Mark-II, 16-35 2.8L lens @ 16mm, F7.1, 1/160. Four Alienbees strobes.I moved the red hose into the frame to make the image more dynamic and add colour. 

 

 

Jim Pettinger, who carries hundreds of varieties of beer at Sherbrooke Liquor on St. Albert Trail, says inducements are an “open secret” in the industry.
Canon 5D Mark-II, 16-35mm f2.8L lens @ 23mm, F18, ISO160.The beer cooler is super dark and I wanted all of the colourful bottles to pop so I used four strobes. Two on the background to shine on all the bottles and two on Jim. 

 

 

Clayton Little is co-owner of Accent Lounge near Whyte Ave.

Canon 5D Mark-II, 24mm f1.4L lens, F11, ISO160.One Einstein strobe with a 22″ beauty dish and a grid on Clayton. One Einstein strobe with a 7″ reflector and grid behind him. 

 

 

Craig Martell takes pride in exclusively selling micro brewed beer at Wunderbar on Whyte Avenue, which he co-owns.
I wanted to bring attention to the colourful sign and also show all the beers that they offered. I put one Einstein strobe with a grid to shine on the sign and a second Einstein strobe with a grid to shine on Craig. Since the grid makes the light beam super narrow, the light only shines on the sign and Craig and the rest of the picture is dark.I used a 24mm Tilt-Shift lens to correct perspective and keep the lines straight as I was shooting from a high angle. 

 

 

Here you can see my lighting setup for the portrait of Jim. Two background lights, an overhead umbrella and a ring flash.

This was my setup for the portrait of Neil. One 7-foot PLM reflector as the key light. An Einstein with a grid to the right for a rim light. Then two strobes in the background to make the tanks shine and pop.

Filming Paul Brandt’s “I Was There” Music Video – Part 4 of 4 – Action and Editing

Posted by ryanjackson on Dec 12, 2011 in lighting, music video, video

This is Part 4 of 4 of my experience filming the music video for Paul Brandt “I Was There”

You can also view Part 3 – Real Characters,  Part 2 – Video Gear and the 7P’s, and Part 1 – Nashville

I had plenty of video portraits and moments for the music video but I really needed some hockey action!

We spent a day on a back yard hockey rink in Fort Saskatchewan and also spent a day renting out an arena to get some more action shots.

All of the characters in the film had to sign a model release so just shooting generic footage of a random hockey game wouldn’t work. I left all of my set-up action shots for the arena shoot.

The last day of shooting was street hockey which really brought everything together.

The Journal's Ryan Jackson and Amanda Ash film pond hockey at Clayton and Crystal Amos' acreage near Fort Saskatchewan, Alta. for the official music video of country music star Paul Brandt's song "I Was There" in Edmonton on December 4, 2011. Brandt's song is the official anthem for the 2012 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship and the video, directed by the Journal's Ryan Jackson, will be played before every game. All the characters in the video are real Albertans who embody the spirit of grassroots hockey.

And the final result!

Also check out Amanda Ash’s audio project The Faces of I Was There.

In conclusion this project was an amazing, challenging and rewarding experience. I met dozens of inspirational people from around Alberta and also made a new B.F.F. Amanda Ash.   The Edmonton Journal and Calgary herald ran photos and Amanda Ash’s stories ran front page.

One of the most rewarding moments though was when they played the video on the big screen in the Saddledome during the bronze medal game and people stood and applauded!

Good times!

Beautiful Time Lapse Video of Commuting in Edmonton’s Suburbs

Posted by ryanjackson on Sep 18, 2011 in lighting, photos, portrait, video

With beautiful time lapses and scenery, Journal photographer Ryan Jackson has captured the different ways we commute from Edmonton’s suburbs. Learn how Canadian’s commute and follow our three commuting challengers to work in a fun way.

I spent about a week and a half on this project to wrap-up Elise Stolte’s living on the edge series about Edmonton’s new growing suburbs. I followed three commuters who get to work in different ways. Since they leave for work at 6:00 AM I had to get up at 4:00 AM each day so I could commute down to the south-end and then video them going to work. I then shot tons of footage of cars, bikes, trains and walkers getting to work.

I wanted all the images to have a certain mood so I shot everything in the morning with my white balance on Tungsten to give that cool early morning feel.


David Pritchard took part in our commuting challenge. He lives in Summerside area and typically drives the Century Park LRT station and then takes the train to work downtown. Pritchard poses for a photo before heading to work on August 24, 2011. I simply used two Canon 580EX flashes zoomed into 80mm placed to the sides of the car and pointed at his windows. I rolled the windows down to reduce reflections. I had orange gels on the flashes and the Camera white balance was set to Tungsten to make the image blue.


Kim Halmilton took part in the Journal’s commuting challenge. Hamilton usually rides her motorcycle to work downtown from her home in north Edmonton. She poses for a photo in front of her home in Edmonton on August 25, 2011. I used two speed lights placed behind her with orange gels on them. Camera white balance set to Tungsten.


Kevin Wirtanen took part in our commuting challenge. He typically bikes to work downtown from his Terwillegar home in south Edmonton. Wirtanen poses for a photo before heading to work in Edmonton on August 23, 2011.


Pritchard poses for a photo at the LRT station before heading to work.

Here are some behind the scenes images. I build an 8-foot long slider and motion controller that I used for a couple of the scenes.


Thanks to my friend Kevin Hill for helping with this time lapse scene.


Most of the time lapse footage was shot on my Canon XH-A1 video camera and then sped up 20X in Final Cut Pro X.


Here I am all setup and ready to shoot David Pritchard at 6:00 AM. This project involved a lot of preparation as I only had about 15 minutes with him before he headed to work.


This video was also my first time using Final Cut Pro X. I must say the program is pretty powerful and amazing. It makes use of all of your CPUs and has background rendering so you can just keep editing without waiting for anything. Do I like it better than Final Cut Pro 7? For some things yes… for others no. It takes a lot of time to get used to. The speed and added features are AMAZING but the complete change in interface and way of editing is frustrating. Hopefully it will get better with time.

Here is an example of when simple props can really add to a picture. I wanted to illustrate “power” so I grabbed as many extension cords as I could find.
I usually shoot at low apertures to blur out the background but here I wanted Jeff, Paul and the solar panels in the background to be sharp so I shot at F9 with a wide lens to get lots of Depth of Field.
I lit this picture one Canon 580EX speed lights to the right.
