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.

One of my favorite mounts is the wrist mount. And it's pretty straight forward. Now before you put it on your subject, I recommend you actually get this open. It's like the GoPro 3 cases. You have to push the one arrow and then pop the lever, and then flip it around and open it up. Now, it's a little tricky so be careful with that lever. Get your camera. You do have access to switches so you don't have to turn it on now. Line that up. Close it. Latch it. And snap it.
Make sure it makes an audible click. At this point, think about what the subject's going to be doing. Now, this is the preferred method for shooting underwater. And you basically adjust where this falls, and then take the latch, and it just holds in there with a little bit of tension. And that makes it pretty easy. So now as he's riding, he can get that in the arm, or if he's moving the arm up. Or, put it on the wrist, whatever's comfortable. Let's show you what this looks like in action.
