Red Wing Boom being used as a Jib - follow up as requested

by JamesNYCJanuary 19. 2013 19:37

Upon request I have pulled together a number of clips show the movement of our Red Wing Boom being used as a Jib for video that would other wise be considered out takes from our Wet Plate Collodian fashion shoot a few weeks ago. You'll have to excuse any jittery moment which is due to my habit of consuming large amounts of coffee on those days when I'm in the studio. Other wise the Red Wing Boom was a really solid performer for what I needed on that day. Note too that only a few times did I use the camera zoom rather than rolling the camera in tight.

Wet Plate Collodian Editorial Fashion Shoot

by JamesNYCJanuary 4. 2013 14:29

A week ago my friend James Weber did an editorial fashion shoot using Wet Plate Collodian process.

I shot video as well as acting as lighting technician.

This was a combination of Profoto studio strobes at around 9600 Watt seconds and ARRI's for an additional 6000 watts. This allowed for exposure times between 9-12 seconds for an ISO of 1. Not the kind of process for the feint of heart or those whose idea of shooting is to hold down the button as if they were making a movie and pray that you got the shot.

Using a Red Wing boom as video camera jib.

by JamesNYCDecember 28. 2012 21:57

Last week I was helping out a friend with his editorial fashion shoot that he shot using Wet Plate Collodian process; by recording it on video.

I used a Red Wing Boom as a camera jib in order to get a few more camera options which is something I've been meaning to try for sometime.

As you can see it was easy to do simply by adding some basic grip equipment that most photographers would usually have on hand in their studios.

I used a: Bogen super clamp, a Manfroto magic arm, a knuckle and a 6" wall plate which I had previously drilled and tapped and attached to my Cannon HD video camera. Although anyone could just as easily use any combination of grip equipment to achieve the same thing rather than spending money on an additional piece of equipment just to perform jib movements.

For those wondering why I didn't just attach the magic arm to the end of the Boom pin by adding another knuckle, that because I use this same combination of grip as a steady cam set up so having a quick release option to from 1 to the other is a nice option.

This setup proved to work extremely well and afforded great stability; and also because the boom was on a rolling stand it allowed me to move around the studio and change elevation in nice smooth motions. A short edit of the video from this shoot will be posted in the coming days.

by JamesNYCAugust 4. 2012 11:37

I think one of the greatest things about living in NYC. is the number of chance opportunities to experience life and people from around the world at any given moment with out warning or notice.

One day I walked over to the window after spending the while night editing video and I found a Japanese fashion editorial being shot across from my house.
