The indubitable Russell Carson, crack banjoist with Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder and enterprising bluegrass photographer/videographer, has posted the latest thing in music archiving – the POV video!
Many types of action photography, from the sublime to the discreditable, now utilize this point of view perspective, allowing the viewer to enjoy the experience of being in the scene themselves. Russ achieved the effect by strapping a GoPro Hero to his head during a wicked hotel room jam with Michael Cleveland, Patrick MacAviniue, Jake Workman, Jesse Smathers, and Barry Reed.
Here’s their screaming version of Big Mon.
You can see all of Carson’s videos on YouTube.
