How to shoot with GoPro: professional advice

Recently, GoPro cameras have become increasingly popular not only among adherents of extreme sports, but also among ordinary photographers who are fond of outdoor activities. These devices allow you to get high-quality pictures ands in almost any situation. Shooting is possible even in the most extreme conditions. under water, in the air, on the run or while driving in transport. Let’s take a look at the professional tIPs on how to get high quality footage using your GoPro camera.

By Megan Lorenz

Fixing the camera

Fixing your camera correctly is important for both safety and quality of your footage. The device can be attached to any part of the operator’s body, but the most popular is the installation on a helmet. It is important to orient the camera in the right direction, otherwise it cannot get into the frame, which is necessary, or the subject will be cut off. The best option for installing the camera is one in which it is directed to a point located at a distance of two to three meters from the operator’s eyes. With this arrangement of the device, the frame will mainly include what the filmmakers see.

The type of fasteners does not make a fundamental difference, but they must be made of high quality materials and provide reliable fixation without backlash. For greater safety, you can use an additional belt attached to the ammunition. It will not let the camera fall if their standard mounts fail.

Correct focus

It will be easier to shoot a moving subject if you decide on a focal point in advance. It is desirable to fix it on a certain part of the human body or in a place where some kind of action will take place. The focal point may periodically shift or be fixed, while it is desirable that the operator roughly understands at what moment and where he needs to return the camera.

GoPro 7 How To Use

Camera stabilization

The best way to get a clear image when shooting action with a GoPro is to use reliable mounts. TIPs for shooting handheld with relaxed wrists are often inappropriate for active recording. Artificial stabilizers (telescopic monopods, SwiftCav stabilizer, etc.) will be more useful in such a situation.

There is a wide range of mounts on the market that allow you to fix the camera to any surface, up to the roof of a car or snowboard. There are also special suction cups that allow you to attach the camera to a surfboard, kayak board or an airplane wing. There are quadcopters for the most demanding operators. they make it possible to shoot from the most incredible angles.

Frame duration control

The frame length recommended by professionals should not exceed ten seconds. If this requirement is difficult to comply with (when snowboarding, boating, etc.), the camera position should be changed regularly. The advantages of this recording method are obvious. it allows you to subsequently edit interesting material from frames taken from different angles and at different time intervals. Interval shooting will allow you to extend the battery life (with continuous use, it overheats and breaks down faster). It is not recommended to shoot footage less than three seconds long. too frequent changes of angles and events will make the finished material difficult to understand.

Features of audio recording when working with GoPro

The built-in microphone capabilities of GoPro cameras are often not enough to record audio in good quality, especially if the device is mounted on a monopod. An external microphone will help to solve the problem, which has a standard head mount and connects to the camera using a cord.

This removes the protective cover, which makes the use of a standard box impossible, which means that you need to purchase an additional housing for the GoPro. Post-processing can help improve audio quality. With Adobe Audition or similar software, you can enhance the bass and midrange by using the equalizer function. Experienced users often resort to tricks. they record the sound sequence separately, and then overlay it on the previously shot

Common beginner mistakes when shooting with a GoPro

  • Insufficiently tightened fasteners, which leads to a change in the angle of the camera during dynamic shooting.
  • The view of the camera is blocked by foreign objects (this often happens when installing the device on a helmet).
  • Insufficient battery power or insufficient memory card space before shooting.
  • When flIPping the camera, not enabled Corresponding shooting mode.
  • Shooting is carried out in a vertical position, which is less convenient for post-processing and editing. Than horizontal.
  • Shooting at dusk without additional lighting. the resulting material will be of poor quality.
  • Many beginners ignore the photography function and only record. Remember that one well-taken picture can convey the atmosphere of what is happening No worse than several clIPs.
