Blitzen Trapper Goes On A Sonic Journey ‘All Across This Land’

first_imgOn their latest album, All Across This Land, Blitzen Trapper has finally achieved a true balance between the abandon of their live shows and the intricacies of their studio work. The band’s main songwriter and creative force, guitarist Eric Earley, set out to unify the more intricate and lilting compositions with the rock-influenced live sound. Much like the later works of Early’s oft cited influences, R.E.M., Blitzen Trapper is finally learning to not just walk the fine line between rock and folk, but to STRUT it.Listen to a playlist of All Across This Land below: The title track, “All Across This Land,” is a pure blast of feel good rock and roll. The song shows a band honoring the roots of classic rock, but with a fresh spirit free of imitation that automatically raises the bar for the songs to come. The follow up track utilizes aggressive air to its advantage, with a clean thin opening that invokes the earnest nature of fledgling garage bands. It’s a bold and daring statement, showing them fuse their sounds with a defter touch than before.A pair of meditations on love and loss, “Mystery And Wonder” and “Love Grow Cold,” illustrate the importance of seamless craft in successful pop songs. Here, singer Eric Earley utilizes his clean, tightly compressed voice to lose most distracting personal inflections. Listeners have a blank slate to project themselves upon, with just the slightest nasal hint of his hero Bob Dylan.“Cadillac Road” and “Let The Cards Fall” demonstrate the benefit of a visionary songwriter at the helm. Stripping down to their barest folksy roots, “Across The River” finds the band telling of a golden hued vision from the banks to the empty imaginary city. In this deserted land, Earley contemplates his and all of our mortality, and finds it worth fighting for.When a band is known just as much for the sheer poetry of its lyrics as it is for the range and diversity of its musical arrangements and performances, expectations among fans can’t help but be high. With All Across This Land, Blitzen Trapper managed to craft a modern rock classic, using a style and world view distinctly their own.Don’t miss Blitzen Trapper on the road this summer, including a show at Garcia’s in Port Chester, NY on June 19th!last_img read more

Day 3 of The 2016 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Presented by Ritchie BrothersDay 1 results from the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop TourDay 2 results from the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop TourAlong with us today is a group of investors with JP Morgan Chase. They follow this tour every year, not as scouts, but just to follow along on some of the routes to get a feel for how things will end up this fall. Conversations in the truck are a bit different with investors on this trip.The dynamic of people that take part in the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour and their reasons why are always fascinating to me. For the past two years, Wal-Mart has been on the tour to get a feel of how commodities important to their bakery needs will fair.Here are the final results for the entire eastern leg of this year’s Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour for Illinois.Corn –193.50 bushels to the acre.Soybeans – 1318.09 pods in 3X3 foot square.We are heading north from Bloomington to get our first sample of day 3. This is my view. Might make for a long day (and a muddy one)!Bloomington, IllinoisCedar County, IowaSome issues in this field, including some ear development issues and as we got into the field, many of the stalks have been blown over recently. Our yield count here is 173.Soybeans, or this weed field with some volunteer soybeans in it, was lodging. The population was okay but the pod count per plant was marginal. Our 3 x 3 foot square pod count is 1184.Cedar County, IowaJones County, IowaThis is definitely the roughest looking corn we have seen today. This field may have been planted right before a dry spell as the root system didn’t dig as deep as the fields we checked earlier today. 140 is our yield estimate here.The soybeans were beginning to die down but SDS made it look like it was farther along in that respect than they actually are. Moisture has missed this field for at least a month. 1146 was our pod count here in a 3 by 3 square.Jones County, IowaJones County, IowaJones County, IowaJackson County, IowaThis field was more mature and well on its way to a great harvest. Some tip-back but just enough where population was right on the money. Our calculations for this field is a solid 198 .Once again we are seeing awful population in soybeans in this part of the country. As you can see in the picture, first pods are still up the stalk a ways. This field’s pod count in a 3 x 3 square is 714.Jackson County, Iowa Jackson County, IowaClinton County, IowaWe just crossed into the Hawkeye State and before we hit our first corn field, we showed our out of towners one of the largest ADM facilities in the U.S. They were quite impressed.The corn here was tipped back more than we’ve seen so far today. Ear count wasn’t great and it still has a little way to go. Our number here is 184.More SDS in these soybeans and they had thinned out. Our 3 square feet pod count was 1324.Clinton County, IowaClinton County, IowaWhiteside County, IllinoisThe ears here may look good but there is a reason for that. The population count was some of the lowest I have seen this week. Our estimated yield here is 194.This was the first SDS I have been in this week, but my fellow scouts today told me they saw a few fields in Ohio with it. Every soybean fields we have been in have had the first node develop as far as 5 inches up the plant. Signs of a dry June in this area. Pod counts here were 1347 pods in a 3 x 3 foot square.Whiteside County, IllinoisWhiteside County, IllinoisStark County, IllinoisAll good here as our corn streak continues. Stalks look in great shape with only minor disease on lower leaves. 240 is our number here.Soybeans continue to disappoint. 30 inch rows and good population here but the picture below is of two of our 3 random plants in the measured row. 798 pods in a 3 x 3 foot square.Stark County, IllinoisStark County, IllinoisHenry County, IllinoisThis corn was planted in 30 inch rows and the ears were above our heads. One of our sample ears had some pollination issues as you can see in the picture. Our yield guess here is 168.Finally a decent soybean field here. Although population was a bit low, we finally took more than 20 seconds to count pods with one over 100. A pod count in a 3 foot square is just over 1300.Henry County, IllinoisHenry County, IllinoisPeoria County, IllinoisThe rain has finally let up but I just got a report from a fellow farm broadcaster in this area that they received just shy of an inch of rain here this morning. Another nice corn field here with a yield 232.Soybeans were lodging here too. Harvest may not be too fun for growers here next month. Another 30 inch row but more population here. We counted 1,386 pods in a 3 x 3 square.Peoria County, IllinoisPeoria County, IllinoisMarshall County, IllinoisIt is very wet and we are hoping by heading west we’ll get through the storms faster. Our first two stops were in this county and the corn is phenomenal. The first field came in at 248 and the second at 229.The soybeans are another story. 30 inch rows and low plant counts are hindering here. The first stop was 882 and the second was 996. The rain is taking its toll on these tall beans and I noticed more 2 bean pods than 3.Marshall County, IllinoisMarshall County, IllinoisMarshall County, Illinoislast_img read more

4 Cool Crowdfunding Campaigns for Videographers and Photographers

first_imgSo much of filmmaking and video production relies on innovation. Here’s a look at some exciting new projects on Kickstarter and Indiegogo.All images from Kickstarter and IndiegogoKickstarter and Indiegogo have seen a wide variety of campaigns over the years. In this roundup, we look at some of the coolest current projects that can help out filmmakers, videographers, and photographers.1. The Everyday MessengerDeveloped by Peak Design (the same crew that made the Capture Camera Clip), this bag has it all. In conjunction with photographer Trey Ratcliff, this is Peak Design’s 5th Kickstarter campaign. Their products are so popular that the Everyday Messenger bag has already met its goal by ten times.The bag itself is so much more than a camera bag. It was designed to be an “everyday” bag. The shell expands while maintaining its shape, and has multiple straps that let you wear it many different ways. There is also quick-zip access to the main compartment, so you won’t always have to flip open the bag. In a great move to benefit previous backers, the Everyday Messenger also incorporates the Capture camera clip. Users can easily attach their camera to the outside of the bag, perfect for second cameras during a shoot. One of the coolest new features is the MagLatch system.The patent-pending MagLatch™ is a digital-safe magnetic latch that opens/closes securely, blindly and one-handedly. It can latch onto 4 different catchpoints, depending on your carry load. There’s no other piece of hardware quite like it.This bag is waterproof and padded to protect your gear. No more padded foam cubes. Their FlexFold system allows you to organize and stack gear. Check out more details, or back the project on the Everyday Messenger Kickstarter Page. 4.  Micro Drone 3.0this is the drone that fits in the palm of your hand. At the time of writing, the campaign had already reached its goal by 2120%. The Micro Drone 3.0 allows you to customize to your liking. It offers the ability to control the device via iOS or Android app or with a standard radio controller. The drone can even handle inverted flight while shooting 720p at 30fps. The micro drone even allows you to use expansion packs to increase the propellor size or use a custom body frame. Grab a Micro Drone or read more on the Micro Drone 3.0 Indiegogo Page. 3.  Sphericam 2The Sphericam 2 is the follow up to the aptly named Sphericam. The campaign has already doubled its goal as the clock winds down. Developed by Jeffrey Martin, the camera offers a 360º capture, perfect for the Oculus Rift or Google Cardboard. At the size of a tennis ball, the Sphericam 2 uses six cameras with a “Global Shutter” which has a 100% spherical capture at 60FPS in 4K.The aluminum body allows WiFi streaming on your smartphone and desktop. The mobile app allows you to control recording, monitor the view, transfer, view, and edit. Give the camera a test run with the following YouTube video, or visit the Sphericam site for higher quality.

Advanced noise filters allow incredible low-light performance up to 102,400 ISO. The micro four-thirds lens mount can use AF lenses from Olympus, Panasonic Lumix, Leica, and Sigma.The camera’s iOS and Android app allow users to control their E1 through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth devices.

7 Tutorials for Learning Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve

first_imgIn the following tutorials, we’ll cover some of the best tips, tricks, and advice for working with Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve.From its digital color correction roots back in the 1980s, DaVinci Resolve has transformed from a software with no more than a hundred users in 2009, to a product user-base of over two million in 2019, which is a number matching Apple’s Final Cut Pro X at its height in 2017. It’s safe to say that DaVinci Resolve is now one of the most popular video editing applications (both for color correction and non-linear editing) for film and video professionals.Yet, for many in the industry, DaVinci Resolve might seem a bit daunting. This is especially true for those who’ve been happy and comfortable with other editing platforms. However, if you’re someone starting out in video editing for the first time — or thinking about trying out a new platform for some specific changes — DaVinci Resolve is fast becoming a new editing workhorse for many.So, let’s dive into some of the best tutorials to get you started.Color Grading in DaVinci ResolveIn my professional film and video career — as both an editor and a shooter — DaVinci Resolve came up most often as one of the better solutions for working with color grading and specific situations, like the above — working with skin tones.However, while the app is much more than just a color grading software, for many it’s still one of the best options for touching up colors and tones. In the tutorial above, we not only get some great insights into how to work with different skin tones, but also how to make masks, unify tones, pair imperfections, and separate mixed nodes.You can read more about the whole process in this article here.DaVinci Resolve Easy Screen Pump EffectOne cool, simple trick — which is pretty easy to uniquely pull off in DaVinci Resolve’s NLE editing platform — is the iconic “screen pump” effect. You know, the one from concert or music videos where the screen seems to bounce with the beat of the song?In this quick tutorial, Jay Lippman shows us how to create this effect without going into color of fusion, but by simply applying some basic keyframing techniques.How to Remove Objects in DaVinci ResolveSo, less than a year ago Adobe turned some heads when they announced their “Content Aware Fill” tool for After Effects. This tool blew fans and editors away with its almost science fiction-level technology. And, while it’s a great option for After Effects users, in the tutorial above you can see that DaVinci Resolve (which is a free program as a basic offering) has the exact same technology.You can follow along in the tutorial above, or check out this full article to learn how to use the Content Aware Fill on your Resolve projects.Basic Fusion and CompositingGetting back to the basics in this tutorial by Casey Faris, we dive into a quick primer on how to navigate DaVinci Resolve, and the first steps you’ll need to take when just getting started. In many ways, the platform is quite similar to other popular NLEs. But, once you start really getting into the fusion and composition, it might help to have a guide in order to understand what’s going on — plus all the advanced options at your control.Using DaVinci Resolve’s Face Refinement ToolAs a good partner video and article to go along with the skin tone editing tutorial at the top of our list, DaVinci Resolve’s “Face Refinement Tool” is truly a remarkable tool video editors and color correctors/graders will love. DaVinci’s Face Refinement Tool was introduced in DaVinci Resolve 14, as seen in the video above.If you really want your models, subjects, or actors to look their best in your film and video projects, check out the full, in-depth article here.Create Neon Animations in DaVinci ResolveIn case you haven’t seen the trendy and stylized looks created by Blotter Media, you should definitely check out the channel here. And, if you’d like to add it to your films and videos, we have a great tutorial to recommend. Editor Jamie Fenn breaks down how to add the neon animations to your projects.Taking a simple example using his fingers, Fenn takes you through creating the painted, soft glows and the frame-by-frame technique of creating your custom animations.THE Total Guide to the Best Free Video EditorFinally, if you’ve checked through the videos above and feel like you’re ready to fully dive into DaVinci Resolve and truly MASTER the platform as one of your regular editing options, we actually have a multi-episode course that’ll teach you the following:How to Organize and Import Media in ResolveHow to Use the Edit Page in ResolveHow to Edit Your Video in DaVinci ResolveHow to Edit Audio in DaVinci ResolveHow to Render or Export in DaVinci ResolveHow to Set Up Basic User Settings in DaVinci ResolveHow to Color Correct and Color Grade in DaVinci ResolveYou can read more about the full course guide and check out some of the individual episodes in this full article here.Cover image via DaVinci Resolve.For more DaVinci Resolve and video editing tips, tricks, and resources, check out some of these articles below.Color Grading Tips: The Ins and Outs of Correcting for a Pink SkyHow to Use the Shared Node Feature in DaVinci ResolveColor Grading: Working with the Hue vs. Curves in DaVinci ResolveYour Guide to Working with Project Files in DaVinci ResolveQuick Tip: How to Use Optimized Media in DaVinci Resolvelast_img read more
