If I showed you some of the fish photos that regularly appear in my email or are posted to our facebook page, you wouldn’t believe them: fish lying on the rocks or in the leaves on the bank, horribly out-of-focus grip-and-grins, fish so dry and lifeless-looking that they seem to be taxidermied. The question then becomes, “Then how do so many people great the kinds of great photos that end up on the blog?”
Our old pal Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions has created an excellent video that walks you through the steps for using a GoPro to take great fish photos. He discusses everything from how to set up the camera, where to mount it, and how to adjust it it to take kinds of shots during the catch-and-release sequence. (The only thing he can’t fix is your own mug.) One of the big benefits of Tim’s system is that it minimizes fish handling and time out of the water.
So, if you have a GoPro camera that’s been gathering dust, now’s the time to give it another shot.
