Join Paul Taggart for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the GoPro for an interview, and lessons learned, part of GoPro: Creative Photography and Video Techniques.
…Before leaving the vineyard, I knew that I needed to get an interview with Mike,…the owner.…I needed that audio track to run underneath my multimedia project.…But I also wanted a good video image, whether I was going to use it or not.…So I set up again, just like I did at the farm yesterday.…I set up a couple different cameras.…So I did it a bit different.…Today, instead of putting the modified GoPro with…the switchable lens mount on top of my DSLR.…I put it on it's own mount on the table.…So it can a little bit of a different angle than my DSLR in case I…actually want to intercut them.…
>> I am Michael Lempriere, I am Perennial Vintners.…I am amongst Washington State's smallest commercial vineyards and wineries.…My claim to fame is that I am the closest commercial vineyard to…downtown Seattle and…>> After setting this up, I realised there was a couple problems.…I used an arm mount with the modified GoPro on it for the switchable lens mount.…And I noticed that every time Mike would touch the table,…it shook it a whole bunch.…
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.
