Looks like carefully planned photo session. Like a bit more spontaneity myself. The camera on the right is very small on that large tripod. Hope he was happy with his photo.
I really wondered what he was doing with the GoPro on the left … it’s not that the building you see blurred in the background – it’s the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conciergerie – does move at all ;-)
I usually think of a GoPro and mounted to a crash helmet or a race car. It looks odd on a tripod. Building has an interesting history. Surprised it’s still there after nearly 1000 years.
We once put a GoPro on a remote-controlled toy car and raced through our server room at work – really funny. I laughed so much I almost crashed the car.
I see you know just how to use a GoPro. You could attach it to your helmet when you go snow boarding. Might be fun to watch later.
Last season I tried it with a chest mount harness – but really — I am not a spectacular snowboarder … the movie wasn’t spectacular at all … if you are sleepless it might be a good sedative … to be short: it was a litlle bit boring ;-)
Just take your rig up to the double back diamond runs and turn on the GoPro. Then go for it. The falls alone should be spectacular. Just don’t break anything.
I guess the falls are the only things that are spectacular with my snowboarding ;-) – let’s see what this season brings. Something like “Martina is stuck in snow pile again” …
