I was out the other day taking some aerial footage with my drones when I decided to set up my brand new GoPro 4 on the dock and take a small timelapse of the waves while flying. This also give me an opportunity to work with some new tools I’m testing out to do timelapses.
Btw if you haven’t I would recommend reading this great blog post first about the GoPro 4 and photo modes. I should probably take the time to create a small cheat sheet I can carry around on my phone for the various light settings and conditions.
I find it quite handy to use the GoPro app to change settings with one exception, their is no way to set predefined shooting settings so your always scrambling to change the settings based upon what your trying to shoot and can find your self forgetting to make a change to some setting which throws off your shots.
GoPro are you listening? Please add the ability to save custom shooting profiles!
So I mentioned this was a quick test for me and probably not the best I could do given the circumstances but I was waiting for this couple at the end of the pier to stop taking photos so I could fly the drones around before the sun went down.
So after coming home I decided to follow this work flow using both Adobe Lightroom and LRTimelapse.
Basically I followed this great video tutorial which gave me a good incite as to what Ill want to do in the future and give me a good working solution for timelapses.
Anyhow on to my short uneventful timelapse, I promise to do better ones but this was more about just figuring out a good work flow.
The little thing that shows up every so often on the right side of the screen is a capture of the drone flying by, its not some mystery UFO thats blinking in and out of space time 🙂
