…Anytime you go out and you shoot an action sport, things will go wrong.…Remember, we took a lot of precaution today to keep both the equipment…and the people safe, but along the way we learned a few things.…So, let's dig in, take a look at some of…the behind the scenes footage and share with you, a…couple of things that you could avoid so you keep…your equipment and your subject safe on your next shoot.…As far as first person stuff goes, I did really like the chest mount.…I was less crazy about the head strap.…It did provide a sense of energy and you really were seeing exactly…what the rider was seeing, so, from…that point of view, it's incredibly interesting.…
But, from a normal viewer's point of view, it gets a bit disorienting.…From the point of view of first person perspective, it totally worked.…And I really would suggest that if you need a lot of…coverage, go with the chest mount and use the head mount sparingly.…And make sure you do some tests to see…what works best for you, and your shooting subject.…
