What is up guys! This weekend I decided to revisit one of my favorite spots as a child, Minnehaha Falls Regional Park, located here in Minneapolis Minnesota!

I met a group of amazing kids and met many a ton of new people at the park. In this video I worked around with some new LUT's and gave my video a whole new color wheel! Vibrant colors look pretty amazing! I hope you enjoy the video!
