I really love what GoPro cameras can do. Remote controlled cameras that can shoot video, stills, and timelapse in an easy to mount body. Toss in a great app and lots of hidden options and it’s amazing what you can do.

I’ve been hard at work on some GoPro classes. I’ve got one on action sports and another about mounting to vehicles. These two will be out soon on lynda.com (a partner of Photofocus). But my first GoPro class is out called “Shooting with the GoPro HERO: Fundamentals.”


Thanks to lynda.com we can offer this class for free (until April 3). You can watch it here http://on.fb.me/1fReer9 by entering your email address.

Got a GoPro? This series covers all the essential skills you’ll need to get out from behind the computer and start shooting in the field with your GoPro HERO, whether you capture stills, video, or even time-lapse photography. In this installment, author Rich Harrington starts right at the beginning: getting the camera out of the box (trickier than it sounds) and setting up for your shoot. He’ll also share his insights on the different menus and buttons to get you up and running quickly, without fussing over controls. Follow-up courses in this series will examine different creative uses for the GoPro.
