The video rollout continues

Some of you who have stopped by recently may have noticed the cramped space at our studio. The slew of bodies, equipment and craft services is the result of a reality show currently filming within the friendly confines of Ambient and Morel Studios for the next few weeks. We’ll keep you posted with details when we can, but the whole thing got us thinking about the push for more video content. Several photographers in town have been shooting with the Canon DSLRs and now seemed like as good a time as any to highlight some of their work:
