Join Paul Taggart for an in-depth discussion in this video Covering the vineyard with GoPro aerial footage, part of GoPro: Creative Photography and Video Techniques.
…>> I chose to come out to a vineyard as part of this story because I…really wanted to utilize our Quadcopter and get some great aerial images.…I thought a vineyard like this would be a perfect location.…It's got these great lines that go up and down.…We also have some activity going on.…I thought this was a great opportunity to really see what we could do…with a GoPro attached to a Quadcopter.…When I picked the location inside the vineyard that I wanted to use my…Quadcopter at, I found out that there was a guy here who volunteers, named Mike.…

It sounds like an ideal set of challenges for photojournalist Paul Taggart, who also shoots video for the Discovery Channel and other media outlets. In this course, he takes us to a farming community in the state of Washington to showcase creative uses for the GoPro HERO, in a variety of situations. He goes deep at a shellfish farm, gets footage from the tractor's perspective at an organic farm, and mounts the GoPro to a quadcopter to get aerial footage at a vineyard. At the end of each chapter, he recaps the shoot and reviews the final still photos and video.
