The GoPro has gone to my Head! Here's a quick and easy way to capture video and give your viewers the feeling of really being in the pilot's seat. My instructor called me at the last minute and wanted me to go flying with him so I could experience an 18 mile per hour crosswind in my Cessna 172. It sounded a little spooky but fun at the same time.
Homemade DIY Greenscreen for Video and Photography In the video below, we decided to create our own portable Greenscreen Frame Stand out of 1 inch PVC. We bought a Greenscreen Backdrop Cloth from Amazon at a really surprisingly low price. We wanted something that we could take apart and take with us to shoot on location. Watch the video below to see our first try at shooting a video with a Greenscreen background.
GoPro on a Pole - A View from a Higher Perspective Humans are naturally attracted to the unusual and the out of the ordinary when it comes to observing their surroundings in everyday life. This probably is due to our primitive instinct for survival. When something happens that is different from our daily routine, it catches our attention and forces us to focus on what's happening.
Finding the Sweet Spot for Mounting Cameras on Your Airplane GoPros and Garmin Virbs are great to capturing the glorious views outside your airplane. But, more than often, the footage that comes out of a flight is sometimes time shaky, unusable and downright embarrassing. I have gone through a number mounting techniques and have burned a lot gas trying to find the Sweet Spot. Every aircraft out there has it's own special in-flight characteristics.
Creating Videos with Your Airplane - 101 One of most fun things you can do with your Airplane (besides flying it) is to shoot video of your adventures to share with family and friends. Many times pilots go solo on their flights, all the time wishing their friends could see what they see. Now, with GoPro, everyone you know can experience the beauty of flight, just like you do.
