New work for @virginradiotoronto ⚡️ I was tasked with shooting a multitude of mixed media content for this social spot; timelapse, hyperlapse, 360, pendulum cam, 3D photos and traditional video capture on the Ronin. It was a blast to take all these techniques I’ve learned over the years and provide a slew of content to the director and editor to create this piece. Want to know about any specific shot? Comment below, happy to go into details ✌🏻 Starring @adamwylde @jaxonair @onairtj Directed/edited by @mrdarrenmcallister DOP @jonsimo Ronin Op @lukewarmsaagi Gaffer @jhuze1988 Cam assist/grip @juanjosela Prod Manager @missynix86 #virginradio #torontofilm #torontocommercial #insta360onex #virginradiolive

I always feel so small when I look up to the starry sky, in the best possible way. It’s one thing to see the sky on a beautiful clear night but creating timelapses from them is on a whole other level for me. This technique above is called star trails and it’s created by stacking each star photo on top of each other as they move in time. Using the lighten blending mode they all start to smear together and you really get to see the rotation of the Earth in action. Getting to see something like that in which the human eye can’t in real time is really special to me. It’s surprisingly easy to accomplish, in both stills and timelapse video, so if you have a few starry sky photos hanging around, try creating some star trails with them 🙌🏻 #startrails #starrysky #astrophotographer #startimelapse #startrail

One hour of Fireflies stacked into a single image ✨ I snapped 150 photographs at dusk, the glow was surreal - every few seconds you’d see the dark forest illuminate neon green. I used my star-trails photo technique in a new way and layered all my shots together in photoshop to create this surreal view of how the fireflies move. I find it fascinating that they all maintained a similar height off the forest floor. There’s a great BBC doc called Life that Glows which delves into fireflies and more, highly recommended. The little fliers only lasted for 60 minutes but so I’m happy I could capture it this way, it’s magical experiences like this that remind me why I love nature so much. #exploreontario #fireflies #discoverontario #ontariocamping #ontarioparks

This post is a a failure... but there’s still merit in posting it. Here’s why👇🏻 I was given the opportunity to shoot some social content for a TD Centre / Raptors collaboration piece, the producers said I could create whatever I wanted from a helicopter as long as it showcased “We the North” written in the windows of the buildings. I wanted to take my hyperlapse techniques that I’ve used on the ground and try them out in the sky. Trying something new for a client can always be a risky decision, I was confident in my hyperlapse skills but never from this vantage point. I was told I had an hour in the sky, but when I was up in the chopper I quickly realized that was not the case. I found myself sharing the helicopter with 5 other people, including a photographer, of which we had to take turns shooting out of the only accessible window. With take off, landing, and dialing in my equipment mid flight, I had maybe 15 minutes of shooting time max - stress definitely ensued. My goal was to capture 2 solid aerial hyperlapses, 1 or 2 backup angles and then 5 useable shots of video b-roll in case all of the above failed horribly. Since these type of shots are so rarely done, I didn’t have anywhere online to pull information from, I didn’t know what focal length to use, what shutter and if I should go stabilized or handheld, but I love a good challenge. What you see above is my stabilized and uncropped handheld attempt at capturing the Toronto skyline. What I didn’t realize at the time is that my wide angle lens was too slow at f/2.8 and my shutter wasn’t fast enough to capture anything without inducing a bunch of motion blur. At the time I thought it was going to be an incredible capture that would for sure work. It wasn’t until I brought the footage into photoshop that I saw all the errors, despite the inconsistencies I decided to still give it a go. This meant aligning 450 photos by hand, layer by layer, which took me about 5 hours... In my mind this clip failed but in retrospect I learned so many things and now know how to capture a handheld aerial hyperlapse properly. I’m posting this as a personal victory in failing... because it’s the path to succeeding ✌🏻

How to create fake drone footage, while also enjoying a brisk hike I shot this using my @insta360 One X camera on the invisible selfie stick. It has insane built-in stabilization that makes my running super smooth. I just reframed the camera to point forward, added some drone sound effects and motion blur and boom, instant cheap FPV drone visuals 😎 #insta360onex #instaonex #dronefpv #airvuz #droneracer

4 loops from my @bmwcanada project, which is the best? These were all shot using the @insta360, a tool that has completely changed the way I think about capturing content. I’m able to shoot on the fly and then create impossible cameras moves in post, a total game changer. #insta360onex #instaone360 #bmwcanada #bmwmfestival #360video

New work for @bmwcanada, went bananas with this edit. . . . This was shot over 3 days for BMW’s M-Fest at Mosport Park. I pulled out all the tricks for this one, including @insta360, both on a drone and on my extendo pole, super slow mo, gimbal, 3D photo, hyperlapse, timelapse, and stills. . . . I wanted the edit to feel like this nonstop flow of energy, just like the weekend felt. I’ve played with each and every shot in some way or another, whether it’s time remapping, post zooming, motion tracking and stabilizing or 360 reframing. . . . What’s your favourite trick shot from this edit? . . .

New work for @cp24breakfast 🥞☀️ I had the pleasure of shooting this awesome mixed media campaign, it featured cinemagraphs and cinematic stills that spanned the 50s, 80s, 90s & modern era. . . . Everything was captured using bursts of raw photographs on the Sony A9 and compiled together using a combination of After Effects and Photoshop. Each look was heavily inspired by breakfast advertising campaigns from those eras. . . . I lit everything using traditional film lights, the real hero light was the 1.2 HMI, which was punchy enough to create hard shadows for the 1950s look but soft enough (through diffusion) to create that flat 1980s look. Everything else was LED, mostly @aputuretech 120Ds and then the stills were lit with @quasarscience crossfades 💡 . . . I even went as far as using era specific lenses for each era of the shoot, the 1950s scene was shot on a 1958 Helios 58mm lens, 80s with on an old Pentax lens and the modern era scene was shot on super crisp Sigma Art primes. . . . Have any more questions about these visuals? Comment below, I’m happy to chat ⚡️ . . .

When the apocalypse inevitably happens we’re gonna have to learn how to use quarters again. . . . @canoncanada let me borrow their new EOS R and 50mm 1.2 lens for a workshop I recently taught at @neondemonstudio. @finnthehoomann was kind enough to model for some shots for me, this one of them turned out so amazingly - huge fan of what that little camera (and big lens) can do 👌🏻 . . . #brandonwoelfel #canoncanada #neonportrait #neonlights #neondemonstudio #canoneosr

It’s easy to take Ontario for granted when I’ve called it home for so many years but there are some seriously stunning sights to see.
