Wedding Photography From a Camera’s Point of View

To capture a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to photograph a wedding, photographer Jaroslav Repta mounted a GoPro video camera to his DSLR and used it to film his camera’s point of view throughout the wedding day. The video above shows this footage along with the resulting photographs that were delivered to the couple.

    Definitely bound to give you motion sickness. I definitely prefer the James Nachtwey style of behind the camera videography.
