This tips is thanks to Julie Evans on behalf of ProEditors – the video editing solution that transforms raw point-of-view camera footage into professionally edited movies that are easily shared with friends. 7. Shoot at 24 FPS in Low Light Settings If you’re shooting in a low light setting, set your frame rate to 24 FPS (frames per second). This will allow more light to reach your camera’s sensor. The lower the number, the better your camera will perform in low light. 8. Shoot Close to the Nearest Light Source If there is no significant light source nearby, use a flashlight (your phone might even do) to improve the lighting.
GoPro Photographer Bio: Patryk is a digital nomad currently in Prague, Czech Republic and blogs with his wife at karolinapatryk.com I wish I knew that GoPro is so easily managed by phone. It (GoPro Hero4 Black) doesn’t have a screen, so it was really challenging for me to take a photo at the beginning. Now, thanks to GoPro app, I can see the full landscape before taking a picture. I can also download it on my phone and post in on Facebook or Instagram right away!
GoPro Photographer Bio: Michelle Michalak is a handboarder based in San Diego and represents the Slyde Handboards Team across social media. I wish I knew how important lighting was when using GoPro. Tip: Lighting is key for not only your quality, but your frame rate. If you want to shoot a high frame rate, like 120 or 240 frames per second, you absolutely need good lighting.

Connect with Avichai on Facebook. I recently returned from a 6 month trip to the remote South Pacific Islands, the primary reason for buying a Hero 4 Silver. I was mostly looking for a way to capture the underwater scenery (see following video), but ended up using the camera to take time lapse videos over volcanoes and from mountaintops (see video below). See price of GoPro red filters My main reason for getting a Hero4 Silver was to take underwater shots when diving and snorkeling. If this is your case as well, I highly recommend getting a red filter for the lens. It compensates for the color distortion in salt water and leads to beautifully clear shots that depict the true underwater colors.

Unless you’ll be skydiving, my advice would be simply to buy GoPro’s 3-in-1 mount which can be used as a camera grip, extension arm or tripod. It covers the most popular necessities such as selfies, underwater photography and beautiful night shots/time lapse videos using the tripod. 4. Shoot Underwater Photos in Time Lapse Mode (2 seconds): When you’re using a GoPro to take underwater shots (not videos), set the camera to take multiple shots in short intervals. Hero4 Silver Tip: my recommendation is 2 seconds which still allows for screen display so you can see what you’re shooting Remember: you must be pretty much completely still for the shot to come out clearly so taking a few consecutive shots increase the chances of that happening.
GoPro Photographer Bio: Josh Summers is a Texan living in Xinjiang, China with his wife and son. He blogs at Far West China. One of the best accessories I ever bought for my GoPro is a simple kitchen timer, the kind that you spin to get started. Put a sticky mount to the timer, set the GoPro to timelapse mode and then spin to get going. The motion adds a beautiful new dimension to time lapse shots and best of all, the egg timer usually only costs less than $10!
GoPro Photographer Bio: Ashley of My Wanderlusty Life is a travel blogger based in Boston, Massachusetts. One thing I wish I knew from the start was the need for red snorkel filters for better underwater photography. Without them, what happens under the water is almost indistinguishable as it’s all just a blue-green mass. See price of GoPro red filters With the snorkel and diving filters (the shade of red depends on your depth) what you see on camera is just how you see it with your eyes: vibrant, natural colors as if the water is crystal clear. Here’s a post full of underwater photography (with GoPro video at the end): Snorkeling in Belize
If you use the Office 365 Business or Office 365 Enterprise editions, you can connect Outlook to over 750 other apps and streamline even more email workflows. For example, you can send new emails you get from a specific sender to Slack or create a new Trello card for new emails sent to a specific Outlook folder. See all the Office 365 integrations available on Zapier or use one of the workflow templates ("Zaps") to get started right away:
If you’ve had success with the previous Outlook tips and are interested in getting into more advanced email management, it’s time to take a look at Quick Steps. Quick Steps allow you to automatically perform long strings of actions based on a trigger. Say at the end of the month you receive a series of invoices from vendors or contractors. Your normal process is to review the invoices, forward the invoices to your accountant, and create a reminder to follow up with the accountant a week later to make sure the invoices were paid. Quick Steps can take care of the last two steps for you with fewer clicks than if you performed the tasks manually:
If you spend a lot of time typing the same answers to questions you get repeatedly, create Quick Parts to insert that text into email replies in just a few clicks. No need to keep typing the same thing over and over again or having to find an old response to copy and paste. When you’ve finished typing a response that you expect to need to send again, follow the steps below to save the text as a Quick Part:
Unfortunately, not all emails in the workplace come with an unsubscribe link. Day after day, emails arrive in your inbox that are just a distraction. Some common examples include:
