Photo 1: If you find yourself awestruck beneath the #NorthernLights
, here are a couple ProTips to capture the night sky with your GoPro. First, you’ll need stability. For this shot, I used the El Grande Mount on a tripod. It’s often cold while watching the Northern Lights, so keep your batteries warm and bring extras or a portable power source. As with all lithium-ion batteries, the temperature will drain them quickly! Here were my settings on #GoProFusion
: Night Lapse Photo Mode, 20s Shutter, WB 5500k, ISO 800, Sharpness Low, and GoPro Color. These will also work for #GoProHERO7
Photo 2: Ice Cave Adventures with @live_free_run_far
When I need to capture a photo of myself, I rely on the trusty Shorty Mount as a small tripod. Once mounted, I lock in my ProTune settings on the GoPro. For this shot I used 1s Time Lapse Photo Mode with Auto WB, Sharpness Low, GoPro Color, ISO Min 200 and Max 600. I then used the GoPro’s LCD to frame a composition and had my buddies pose to see where we needed to stand. I was ready, so I pressed the shutter and walked over to my spot. When you shoot in Time Lapse Photo Mode, you’ll have a ton of photos to go through, but you’re more likely to capture the image that you’re looking for. Sometimes, you’ll even snag a surprise-accident shot that you might not otherwise capture.
Photo 3: Living in Alaska is awesome! Living in Alaska with dogs is even better! I have the energetic dogs to thank for helping me get outside and exploring. It means a lot of excursions, whether they’re on the trails near my home or up on the mountains. When I shoot photos of the dogs, it’s either in .5s Time Lapse Photo Mode or 30/1 Burst Photo Mode. They move quickly, so you need to shoot rapidly to capture what you want. Time Lapse Photo Mode allows you to capture a shot while continuing to live in the moment.
