The GoPro HERO was practically built for sports, and not just the extreme kind. It's compact, durable, and produces high-quality footage at a high-frame rate—just the kind of camera you want for shooting fast-moving athletes outdoors. Rich Harrington drops in at the local skate park and shows how to shoot grinds, kickflips, and ollies from multiple angles, including a head mount and an under-the-board point of view. He also shows how to plan for other equipment you'll need, like Steadicam rigs for extra stabilization or clamps and poles to capture interesting angles. Plus, learn how to film interviews on location without having to switch cameras, and set your GoPro to capture overcranked footage. Best of all? The techniques shown only require one camera, so if you have a GoPro, you're good to go.

I just wanted to share a couple of thoughts about how we're approaching today's shoot. For the most part, we're going to have lots of cameras in lots of places. Now, there is an important concept called the 180 degree rule which means that we're going to keep all the cameras on one side of the action. Now, we're in a giant circular park. There's a ton of things here we're going to be shooting so we're going to be moving around throughout the day. We're going to do a lot of our shooting while the sun is primarily overhead to avoid the longer shadows and really give us a nice, even exposure.
Fortunately, with most of the GoPro equipment, the cameras are either going to be mounted on our subject or they're going to be on small stands. But if I am going to be using some hand held camera work or I'm going to be using a pole to get some extension or jib-like shots I just need to be mindful where my shadow's going to be. There's not a lot of cloud cover today, so we need to mindful of lens reflections and we could that by monitoring with the GoPro app making sure we don't get any flares or too much sunlight hitting the lens. Will also take advantage of the neutral density filters, to really pull that off.
I'm really excited to get great footage today. But we're certainly going to have some variable lighting conditions. Cause we're going to be out for the whole day shooting. So, I think it's pretty important that we discuss how we're going to review the footage on sight. So, there's no surprises.
