  • Jay Scott Photography: Jambalaya
    owner know about it when it is returned We don t have the desired mounting hardware that I would like for this so at the end you will see where the gaffers tape I used slowly let s go until the camera points towards the ground over a bout a two minute period Must have been the steam from the simmering jambalaya that made the adhesive weaken I have a bracket that will suffice for our events In addition to the drooping camera I forgot that the Epicure chicken broth powder jar with the Angela sticker on it is in fact turmeric As such we received our monthly dose of anti inflammatory and antioxidant in the 3 teaspoons of spice instead of 3 teaspoons of chicken broth powder The jambalaya still tasted good but it was definitely very yellow and not quite the flavor we were expecting Anyway I had been waiting to make that for a long time and it was really good Probably won t be much activity here for the next few weeks as Help Portrait goes on and wraps up so until then here s to warm temperatures and little snow Posted by Jay at 12 48 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels gopro help portrait jambalaya saskatoon time lapse 2 comments Norm Daley November 27 2013 at 9 04 AM Had no idea you could work so fast Where did you get that unique handle on your frying pan lid Reply Delete Jay November 27 2013 at 9 13 AM I know how to cook don t I That handle was made by my custom fabricator who can build just about anything It will be featured on Challenging Reality in the near future Reply Delete Add comment

  • Jay Scott Photography: From the Lowliest to the Highest
    friend He was unable to complete his portion of the work on time because of some unfortunate circumstances out of his control there may have been a little bit of procrastination in there but it was not the primary reason and we could not complete our portion of the assignment without his preliminary work It was for a final grade in marketing I guess that was a better taste of the real world than anything I had had to that point That said I am looking forward to the events this year the enjoyment that will come out of all of this planning and all of these meetings to make something awesome happen What at one point had the phrase pull the plug being tossed around turned into something excellent as volunteers began coming out in droves Our co organizer was correct people don t come out until much closer to the event Stresses a guy like me right out But it will be a pair of good days providing portraits for those who receive few luxuries in life and I will be absolutely ready to scale back after that Oh wait Christmas will be in a few weeks and I have shopping to do that won t get done until then Once January hits I can hibernate and catch up on much that needs doing Hopefully our furnace will continue to decide to function properly during those coldest months and our water heater installed in January won t need any more warranty work I dislike those inconveniences at the best of times but especially when my attention could be focused somewhere so much more positive The Highest You may remember this photo from a few years ago when I made the author portraits for Nicole and Lynne for their book Erpill the Caterpillar It can be found in major retailers such as McNally Robinson and online at Amazon Nicole by Jay Scott I know that I m always my own worst critic but I am aware of some of the things I would ve done differently for their portraits I won t go into that detail I can only look back and say that I am aware that I have become a much better photographer since then and I hope I continue to grow in my ability I know they are happy with the portraits and if they ever need new ones I will be ready to make them Lynne by Jay Scott It s cliché but the Internet has opened up publishing to anyone You don t have to go through major magazine newspaper or other publication in order to be seen Of course getting publications with them meant a much larger audience but if you can find the right mix between quality content and community building you can become a voice in your area of expertise or passion Erpill is a self published book In their available time Lynne and Nicole have steadily gained ground with their

  • Jay Scott Photography: New Hallway Photos
    high as creating the images I am trying to create I just know that my personality will not allow me to blur something sharp wash something out or desaturate something below what is seen by our eyes It s no secret that I often increase the saturation in an attempt to brighten the world around us through my photos I realize that the following photo does have an imitation of selective colour but it is not a cheap Photoshop trick The nuances of the red light warming up the white backdrop along with the cool light hitting Kiwi s back and playing into the folds of the blanket make for the natural look that you subconsciously see when you look at a real photo as opposed to a Photoshop mimicking However one technique that I use often that I am fully aware is cliché and will be outdated before too long is the use of extreme cool and extreme warm light as in the very first and very last photo of this post Video games movie posters music album covers all currently use these colour extremes and get away with it as I get away with ridiculous bright neon colours when I m photographing Kiwi But I do realize how quickly they will become old One of my favorite photos I made of food used very subtle differences in the colour of the light and I should try to remember that as I work to develop my style Kiwi Canada Day by Jay Scott Often the look of the photos I make is a bit dramatic and that is mostly in my choice of lighting but trust me when I say that our dog is seldom as intense as she appears in a lot of the photos I make of her I have one more in mind that might be tricky to execute but I m going to make it happen one of these days It will be a slightly long exposure of her laying with her head between her front paws like a Pound Puppy with her little tail wiggling The long exposure will allow her little stub to be a cute little blur as she lays there watching while I talk to her trying to get her just interested enough to wag her tail but not so interested that her head pops up from between her paws Ironically I often find it easier to direct a dog who only understands a tiny fraction of the words I say to her than a person I guess it s all about relationship and knowing your subject Kiwi One Light by Jay Scott The frame in our hallway now has five fresh new photos that will likely keep us smiling as we walk by for at least a few years In the meantime I will be constantly making new shots of our little Poochy who will be turning six in one short month By the time we are ready to replace

  • Jay Scott Photography: Kub Kar - Year 1
    near future The Technicals The background was provided by the one of the galaxy slides included in one of the creative kits available to accessorize a Light Blaster From about 5 feet away focused to 4 5 feet to increase the perceived bokeh zoomed into approximately 45 mm by one SB 28 set to 1 4 power with the consumer lens aperture opened to f 4 5 the image was projected onto my white fleece blanket hanging in the background The camera settings are 50mm f 7 1 1 200 ISO 200 I list these because I know there would be photographers who would ask but really when you are combining five light sources with different types power settings gels modifiers distances and triggers those first four basic camera settings are little more than a baseline They were adjusted around my flash power limitations That limitation being the minimum output possible The fog created by my new Dragon Puffer kit from Zero Toys was illuminated by one SB 28 1 64 power with 1 2 3 cut of red gel The galaxy projection was tweaked with a one third cut of CTB the snooted flash on the camera left side of the car had a 1 4 cut of CTO while the camera right side gridded flash had a 1 2 cut of CTO The final gridded light source was projected from quite high and just camera left onto the reflective sticker on the front of the car to emulate a bright headlight It was altered with a 3 4 cut of CTO and two thirds cut of lavender gel chosen to emulate the color of today s higher and car headlights Because of the sticker s reflectiveness it needed to be just bright enough to create that purple blue

  • Jay Scott Photography: Kub Kars - 1/2 Lb
    while to work in and was not at its fastest when my turn came At least that is my memory of the derby Kub Truck 2 by Jay Scott Of course the cars had regulation sizes and weights for the driving competitions but not for the show competitions I remember seeing a huge fire truck at one of the provincials that I believe won for showmanship Kub Truck 3 by Jay Scott However my dad being a truck guy decided to build this Kub truck just for fun And did a fine job of it I thought it might be a good glow stick hauler but they were a bit too big to fit comfortably Still it made an interesting light source with a 25 second exposure Over the next little while my three cars will be posted on here and you can see what three winning cars look like Stacey Posted by Jay at 9 30 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels glow stick kub little things macro nail pin pin stripe scouts truck No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Challenging Reality

  • Jay Scott Photography: 2013 West Coast Vacation Video
    the voice recorder app The video was compiled and edited in Lightworks 11 1 1 1d and worked flawlessly once I knew what I was doing with the software It s been a long time since I did any video editing and this was far more in depth than anything I had done before The next video I plan on making embeds multiple frames together and I imagine I will lose a few more handfuls of hair getting that to work the way I want it to Aside from the introductory track the music was provided by David Hildebrandt s album Instrumental Classics which he was gracious enough to allow me to use royalty free since I made the cover photo of that album as well as doing all the photography for his album Ordinary Man The only note that I did not put in the video was the disappointing transition from the same class of highway from the United States to Saskatchewan If you watch near the end just before the photos at the cabin you will see two highways the first being in Montana the second being in Saskatchewan just minutes apart I guess we have less population and more highways to maintain but it was a big difference in the comfort of driving just a few kilometers apart You can watch it on this embedded video but I may suggest that you click on the YouTube button in the bottom right and watch it on YouTube in full screen at full resolution I took the time to make it is large and crisp as I could so it would be a shame not enjoy it at that quality Thanks for watching Maybe in a few years I will have another video from Vancouver and Victoria to share

  • Jay Scott Photography: 2013 CPA Wheelchair Relay
    getting around by wheelchair trying to plow through snow I suppose a lot of these complaints are part of the reason that I help out with this relay It is my hope that the suggestions regarding accessibility that the CPA is able to provide businesses with will become laws Until there is punishment for exclusionary decisions by businesses I don t believe we will have a properly accessible city Among our celebrity guests was Becky Richter who since I first photographed her over four years ago when she was fairly new to wheelchair racing has won plenty of medals and broken records Heather doing her yoga demonstration for us Heather s daughter rocking her face paint She even had a leopardprint shirt on to match CTV s own Mike Ciona was our emcee for the fourth year and did his usual excellent job Subway provided an excellent lunch for us and there were the many prizes provided by smaller businesses from around the city to give to people through draws trivia competitions and other games Of course there were the large corporate sponsors that are greatly appreciated and make this fundraiser the most beneficial to the longevity and effectiveness of the CPA I got a little heavy on the photos of Lawrence but that guy can move The sequence of six photos that I took of him making his passing maneuver above was a lot of fun to cycle between to watch him overtake the older gentleman who s reaching for him Things like that make the day extra fun to participate in Some of the groups had the absolute best costumes this year There were the biker women as seen in the background of the last photo of Lawrence above with their fishnet stockings bicycle helmets and tank tops

  • Jay Scott Photography: I Was Due
    metal and pipes look it is a robot fighting game after all But the blue hues from that one in particular had my memory jogged after looking at that slide I wasn t sure if the portrayal would come through but thinking about how much hardware had been in my head and still is in my neck I thought a look of transparency or peek below the surface of my skin might be interesting as if the metal is being revealed Finally I m not mad angry or hostile but it doesn t take a master photographer to know that a big toothy grin wouldn t work very well for this photo hence the firm expression Self Portrait 09092013 2 by Jay Scott Posted by Jay at 3 59 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2013 light blaster megaman metal people portrait quickman self selfie No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Challenging Reality The Portfolio All Photos on 500px Photo Sets Bigger Things Eclectic Fauna Flora Food Little Things People Scenery Skies Sports Latest 500px Uploads Loading Tweets by jayscottphoto Blog Archive 2014
