Your wedding day, from the photographer’s perspective

GoPro Behind the Scenes Wedding Photography
We have all seen wedding images, they are some of the most powerful and emotional imagery that we have of an event in our lives. But what does a wedding look like from the camera’s perspective? Take a peek behind the curtain of this wedding from New Jersey based photographer Tom Harmon, showing you what the camera sees while you are busy getting hitched.

“I strapped a GoPro to my camera for an entire wedding to show you my point of view. What you see is the actual seconds I am taking the photo, using several different lenses and lighting techniques.” Tom says of the video.

Honestly, it’s a far cry from the emotionally powerful images that we are used to seeing from a wedding, but it gives you a unique look at what a photographer sees and experiences at your nuptials, everything from standing on chairs, to taking images of rings on a pillow, to standing on top of a building to capture the groomsmen off in the distance.

What we loved about this video, beyond the interesting perspective, was that Tom Harmon included some of his final images sprinkled into each scene. This is a nice reminder of what the camera is actually capturing, beyond what we are seeing from the GoPro footage in the rest of the video.

The first dance, the bridesmaids reveal, the couple’s images alone in the barn. These are moments immortalized by a photographer, captured by a camera and remembered for a lifetime by those involved. This unique perspective, through the eyes of the photographer and camera, just highlights how much professional photographers do to show these moments in their best light, so that for generations to come these events can be remembered for the joyous occasions that they are.

Seven things I loved
More responsive
The GoPro Hero 10 is much more responsive than the previous iterations of the camera. When I reviewed the Hero 8 and Hero 9, one of my biggest concerns was usability. While the functionality was amazing, the usability was not. Well, no more.

Thanks to the new processor, the GoPro Hero 10's usability is as good as its functionality. GoPro has finally done justice to its camera. Navigating through the interface feels on par with my iPhone's camera app. The new camera was a joy to use, thanks to a more responsive interface.
Amazing photos and slow-mo

See the OnePlus 10 Pro now, days before the official January 11 launch
OnePlus 10 Pro 5G.

This is the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G, and it’s coming on January 11. However, before you start checking your bank account in anticipation, there is a catch. OnePlus says the launch will “begin in China,” so it appears the OnePlus 10 Pro will make its international launch later on, and any January 11 launch event will be focused on China.

The image you see here is also the only one OnePlus has shared at the moment, and it hasn’t talked about the specification yet either, so if you’re holding out for a lot of final, official details you’ll have to be patient. But that doesn’t mean we can’t take a closer look at the images and note some of the major design decisions.
