Join Paul Taggart for an in-depth discussion in this video Using GoPro time lapses to document the day at the farm, part of GoPro: Creative Photography and Video Techniques.
…I used the time lapse function on the Go Pro while flying my quadcopter just to…get some still images.…Since I couldn't actually be there to press the button while the quadcopter was…flying around.…But throughout the day I also utilized the time lapse function on…the Go Pro to actually do some time lapses.…It's a great way when your really really busy like this to get a little bit…more coverage.…Because essentially since there's only one of me I can be in multiple places at…one time with the Go Pro.…Which means tonight when I get home I'm going to have three,…four times more footage than I would if I was just me with just one camera shooting.…
I'm lucky enough that on this project I've got a couple of extra GoPros to make…this happen.…So some of the places where I've put these GoPros to do time lapses.…I wanted them to look different.…One of them was inside of a shed looking through an opening.…One of the things I knew was going to be a problem was the exposure of the inside of…the shed and the outside of the shed we're dramatically different.…
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.
