Shooting Cherry Blossom (With the X-Pro 2)
It was a beautiful spring day in Dublin today, so I went for a walk through the park to shoot the cherry blossoms with my Fuji X-Pro 2. I also wanted to try out something new, (well, technically old), that I got, so I filmed the whole thing. I acquired an old GoPro (first generation) so I decided to do a kind of Vlog style (kind of) video and I so I set about recording my progress with a GoPro mounted on the Camera’s hot shoe.
I didn’t record any voice, but instead put it to music, and I think the results turned out really nice. The Cherry Blossoms are at full bloom and the pink flowers are really beautiful. It was also a really nice day too. I shot the photos on my X-Pro 2 using the kit 18-55mm lens. I processed the results in Lightroom (I may do a video for that too, stay tuned) after running them through X-Transformer and I used my own FilmLUX Lightroom Presets as the base, and tweaked them slightly for each shot.
Below is a selection of some of the photos exported from Lightroom. If you liked this video, please visit my YouTube channel and like the video and subscribe! If you’d like to see a video of how I edited the photos let me know, and I’ll record one.
