Since our son was born it’s been my passion to capture each change on camera. To do this I decided to photography a monthly image using stickers my sister sent me from the states.
But yesterday it was a double bonus when his three month picture got explored on Flickr. Check out the picture on Flickr
Having seen and read a lot about the GoPro Hero cameras I took the plunge and bought myself a Black Edition. Of course this is an action camera, something mostly used for sport and selfies. However my main use is to capture the actions of our newborn. His first swim, first walk, first interactions with his environment and so on.
Yet, it’s early days for the little fella. He has just turned three months so we could not go to the pool until he had all his injections. So in the meantime I’m using the opportunity to learn how this little box works best. So first up I stuck it to the car window and captured some wide angle stills.
My GoPro Images
Obviously not the most exciting use of this excellent camera, still a lot to learn to get the most out of it. However, I have now discovered the various mounts, brackets and even quadcopters available. So this is only the beginning of my new relationship with GoPro. Come back and see how Atticus and I are getting on in future posts.
