GoPro has established itself as the leading brand of personal video cameras. These cameras are heavily associated with extreme sports and adventurous activities - this is, after all, the reason they were developed in the first place. However, this isn’t the only use for these type of cameras, in fact, they have multiple photography uses. From creating videos to capturing images for canvas prints, in this post we’ll be exploring the many different uses for your GoPro...

Gear Yourself Up With The Latest Equipment
The latest addition to the GoPro family is the HERO5 Black, which is the most powerful and easy to use GoPro. It boasts a 4K video, voice control, one-button simplicity, waterproof design and touch display buttons. So, if you’re going to venture into this new style of photography, you may as well do it with the latest model for the best results.

Aerial Photography
The beauty about a GoPro is that it can capture angles your camera can’t, and this is due to the wide angle of the GoPro’s lens. This means it’s great for aerial photography. Before you hang it from buildings, monuments or other tall objects, test it out by simply hanging it from a light fitting in your home - the results are incredible.

From this angle you’ve got a different, interesting perspective that you can get without worrying about damaging your DSLR. How do you capture an image when your GoPro is at a height? Download the GoPro app, available on iOS and Android, and trigger the equipment with a push of a button.

Play With Pets
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see the world through your pet’s eyes? And now you can with the GoPro. You simply attach the camera to your pet’s harness and then let them do their thing - simple. The results will make for interesting canvas prints, and ones that animal lovers are bound to love. Take a look at what Susie’s dog captured when she went for a walk in the park (if you adore dogs, you’re going to love this!)

Cook With It
Do you know how many likes you can get on a food image that’s Insta-worthy? Hundreds! And with a GoPro strapped to your head or dangling from the fan above your cooker, you’re bound to capture interesting foodie shots when serving up your favourite meals. If you’re not sure where to start or what you want to capture, take some inspiration from our kitchen canvas print ideas.

Get Inspired
As you can see, there are plenty of uses when it comes to GoPros. All you need is some inspiration, and there are loads of places you can find some. If you’re struggling to come up with ideas maybe it would beneficial to join a camera club or join a photography organisation, so you can be around like-minded creatives. Bouncing ideas off one another is a great way to come up with new and exciting works of art. There’s also plenty of art exhibitions on during October that you can visit to flood your imagination with ideas and photography inspiration.
