BLAKE DAHLINGER: 2000MPH

Article by: Stefan – SF Intercom

I love getting photos of drummers… but sitting in the dark 10 feet behind the lead singer makes getting a good shot really hard!!!

A couple months ago I purchased a GoPro camera to capture my notes at SF MusicTech. My friends made fun of me for using an HD camera (which is normally used for surfing, skating, mud runs and other extreme sports) on a nerdy note taking project. To my surprise and theirs the video got almost 2000 hits. (VIDEO)

As and experiment I set up my GoPro camera behind Blake Dahlinger from I The Mighty. The hope was to put a spotlight on the man at the back of the stage. I set up the camera, pulled the footage and then sped it up 2000%. I must admit… I’m pretty impressed with the result. However… I’m still deciding if I want to put an I The Mighty song over the squealing high pitched fast forwards sound… hmmm!!!
