I am on the road to-and-from assignments and sessions frequently. While driving I would continually see amazing things that made me wish I could drive and capture them at the same time.
Over the summer, I began experimenting with video format. It made me realize that I could shoot video while driving and capture some of the interesting things that I had been previously unable to share.
Using a dash mount cell phone holder as a tripod and my iPhone, I began experimenting with video loops from my road trips.
It is a lot of fun in the time-lapse mode to capture long distances and interesting stretches of roadway. On social media, I’ve enjoyed sharing these loops a great deal. Most often they are paired with one of the songs I was listening to at the time of capture.
My recently, I’ve also introduced a GoPro Session into my traffic recording. It has a wide range of mounting options and it’s compact size make versatile in a tiny space. I’ve found that even a nice piece of gaffers tape will hold it in place during a night drive through the city.
These in transit loops have become another fun and creative way for me to share my life on the road and on assignment.
