My GoPro POV while photographing a concert + how to

Ever wonder what it’s like to shoot a band, on stage, in front of 55,000 people? Well, here ya go. I attached a GoPro to the end of my Canon 24-70’s lens hood and filmed my day of shooting. I am not a great video editor by any means, but the content is there!

The response to the video has been pretty solid, so I plan on doing more. People have been asking how to put the GoPro on their camera, it’s pretty easy! But here is a step by step guide on what I do.

first attach this GoPro attachment to the top of your hood
your GoPro should snap on nice
You will need some gaffers tape
an incredibly small amount, maybe half this
put it on your lens, right where the threading is for the hood
ta da
it’s okay if it bunches up, just as long as it’s snug
ta da! now you are ready to conquer the planet
