Creative Video Angles: Inspiring POV Surf Shots

The weekend is here my friends [almost].

I’m resolved to go do something fun. Something creative. Something active. The videos below inspire all three actions.

There has never been a more exciting time in the history to be a photographer. Technology in enabling accessibility (and usability) like never before. Hell, if you can imagine it, you can capture it. And you dont have to spend an arm and a leg to do it. Helmet cam footage, a long-time staple in action sports and adrenaline fueled photography, has helped millions share their stories and creative vision in extraordinary ways. And the quality of these little cameras is getting better all the time. Big leaps have been made in the last couple of years — and we assume there are more to come.

Have a great weekend.

    Haha. In my RSS feed, I read the title of this article as “Inspiring POV ‘SMURF’ shots’. Boy was I disappointed.

    It would appear that GoPro definitely goes to all sorts of exciting places. A 14 year old boy launched his own weather balloon to the edge of space with a GoPro to record it all. The mind boggles…

    Does anybody know who sells a DSLR chest mount to get some cool POV shots? Lowepro and ThinkTank both dont.

    There’s a fine line in between the organic sorts of snoring that really should result in no worries, and the consistently habitual form of snoring that goes out of control, specifically to those who do not snore. For the occasional snoring, there should be no worries regarding the factors for snoring is fundamentally happening when your child or your substantial other has had a very long day of activities.
