This past December I was fortunate to receive a GoPro Hero 3 as a Christmas present. Immediately, I started playing with it and wondered how I could use this new tool while riding by bike. I was instantly impressed by how the easy it is to use, and the durability. After a couple days of test shots around the house and finally receiving the bike mount, I set out recording and experimenting with different mount positions. And now, I can’t stop. I carry it with me everywhere I go, recording everything and anything. My friends have finally gotten use to that weird guy with the camera. It also opened up new ideas and creations.
Being an artist, I am naturally observant. As soon as I started reviewing and editing video, I noticed all the things I never noticed while I was riding. Like, how close that car got to me, or that little kid staring at me as I rode through the intersection. In a way, it inspired me to start this website and pushed me to learn more about video editing and mixing.
What I’m trying to tell you, is to get ahold of one and have fun with it. See what you can do with these things. Try to break them.
Above and below are a few stills from the videos I’ve taken. You can also check out a few shorts, I’ve put together on Vimeo. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
