Seeing Through the Eyes of a Wedding Photographer

There are many behind-the-scenes videos about wedding photographers, but this one takes a very different perspective. Photographer Jaroslav Repta mounted a GoPro video camera to the side of DSLR so viewers could see the camera’s point of view during the wedding. It is very interesting to see how he approaches each angle and he also narrates it to walk us through his techniques:

The video above shows the footage from his GoPro along with photos of the wedding and more from a typical day in the life of a wedding photographer. Includes an explanation on how he setup a rig in order to mount the video camera.

    Excelent work! Love all the details!
    Dovolím si kousek v češtině – fotky ze svateb nemám upřímně moc ráda, připadají mi většinou dost kýčovité. Vaše práce je ale vkusná, nápaditá a nepostrádá šmrnc! Jen tak dál!
