Using a head mount

While my preference is to go for the body mount, a head mount works pretty well, too. Alright, this particular unit is designed just to be attached sort of like a hat. And, depending on your subject, you may need to adjust it a bit.

And on the inside of the strap there's a bit of adhesive, sort of sticky, tacky material. It's not going to stick to the skin, but it does cut down on any slippage. This works pretty well, but you can actually turn that around. You mind rotating that 180 degrees? There we go, and you see now he can actually shoot backwards. So if we wanted to get action from what's happening behind the athlete, this is a pretty cool point of view, and that's one of the cool things. This just really puts you right in the point of view of your shooting subject. Also a lot of times this clip can be unattached and it has a hat clip, a pretty versatile shooting solution.
