The physical design of the GoPro camera changed videography, as its small, wearable form factor gave rise to POV footage previously impossible to capture. It gifted us viewers with an entirely new visual experience of the world. Along those same lines, the software that enables what’s known as sequential photography is allowing us to see things that the human eye cannot naturally perceive. And produced by the right shooter, those things are freaking beautiful.
