Video: Street Photography with a Fujifilm X-T30 & Eterna

Take a look at Street Photography with a Fujifilm X-T30 & Eterna, which is the latest video from Fuji X Weekly! Last Sunday I shared with you the first video that Amanda and I worked on together, which featured footage and photographs captured using my Kodacolor film simulation recipe. This new video features footage and photographs captured using my Eterna film simulation recipe. The point of this video series is to demonstrate different film simulation recipes for video and still photography, but in a way that’s hopefully entertaining and perhaps even inspirational.

Unlike the last video, which had Amanda behind the video camera, I captured all of the footage for this one. While I was doing it, I did my best to think, “How would Amanda record this shot?” I didn’t do a particularly good job, though, but I did record a lot of content in hopes that there would be something usable. I employed my Fujifilm X-T30 with a Rokinon 12mm lens for both the video and stills. Amanda took all of it into editing software and somehow made this great video. Honestly, I don’t know how she did it. She really did an incredible job!

    Ritchie, I think you need to “hire” Amanda to do all your video capture and editing. 🤪 (some friendly teasing).

    Where was the video captured? What city? Unlike your previous video, some of the buildings in the scenes seemed a bit worse for wear. It’s not something I see in my area (unless I drive into Trenton).

      I answered my question. I watched the video a few times and paid attention to the names of the stores. With a little Google searching, I think this is Ogden, UT and some of the shots are from Historic 25th Street.

      Honestly, it’s a miracle that she was able to make a video from the footage I captured. This was in Ogden, Utah. I would like to say that has seen better days, but it was a fairly rough city for many years (going back to the “old west”) and is now “making a comeback” so to speak.

        There are some towns like that in the southern end of New Jersey, that fell on hard times economically when the railroads stopped passing through. They are trying to make a comeback as historic towns to visit. Most have a brewery or two and some sort of art and theatre area.
