LOS présente un clip pour Christmas in D (Filmed, directed and edited by Gregory Clapperton)

Le groupe indie rock québécois LOS a fait paraître en octobre dernier son excellent Big Surf, un album initiateur que l’on a eu la chance de vous présenter en exclusivité. Le groupe revient aujourd’hui à la charge avec un tout nouveau clip pour Christmas in D, juste à temps pour les fêtes.
Alors que leur clip précédent les plaçait au coeur de l’Autodrome Saint-Eustache, on a cette fois affaire à une esthétique complètement différente. House band d’une réception de taille réduite, les membres y assistent impuissants à une querelle autour d’une dame qui se résoudra dans la danse.

Filmed, directed and edited by Gregory Clapperton

Ben Cherry Nature X-Photographer – Taking the best from the X-T1 into the X-T2

BenCherry08a BenCherry08b BenCherry08c BenCherry08d BenCherry08e“My name is Ben Cherry, I’m an environmental photojournalist and Fujifilm X-Photographer. I’ve been using the X Series for over three years now and was given the tremendous responsibility of being a part of the X-T2 project. Its predecessor, the X-T1, was a revelation for the X Series and was my go-to camera for the previous two years. With a huge viewfinder, weather sealing, 8 frames per second and an articulating screen, what wasn’t to like with the previous generation? Well the X-T2 takes all the best features of the X-T1 and builds on them, as Fujifilm continues to evolve its inspiring X Series system. In this first of three videos I look at the key differences between the cameras.”

“In the next video we will be looking at the key features of the X-T2 in more detail, with a particular focus on features for nature photographers. (Coming soon)”
