Whatever the case, many GoPro situations put you in a passive situation controlling the light. Consider the following:
- Observe the direction of light: Make sure the action is effectively illuminated. It's hard to always have the sun at your back, especially when the camera is separated from you. Nonetheless, the light must illuminate subject, not backlight it.
- Take advantage of overcast condition: Cloud cover offers many advantages. You don't have to worry about the direction of light because our cumulus friends act like a giant diffuser, providing a flattering illumination from all sides.
- Shoot night scenes: Sometimes the subject is light, or at least illuminated, as shown.
- Watch out for lens flare: That super wide-angle view is both a blessing and a curse. Actually, the wide-angle view is a blessing, but you need to keep an eye out for lens flair (that's when light comes into the lens).
