gopro announces the hero 8 black

GoPro has unveiled its new flagship action camera, the Hero 8 Black. Arriving alongside it is the GoPro Max, a 360-degree camera that improves on the GoPro Fusion, and a range of ‘Mods’ designed to enhance the Hero 8 Black’s filmmaking capabilities. The Hero 8 Black shares the same GP1 processor and 12MP camera as its predecessor but, unlike the Hero 7 Black, it features a number of chassis improvements, while the entire operating system has been rewritten to accommodate a range of software upgrades and new shooting features. HyperSmooth 2.0 offers expanded image stabilisation across all shooting modes and frame rates, and the interface features new Capture Presets that enable you to customise shooting profiles and swap between them. GoPro has ditched the frame mounting system, replacing it with foldable inbuilt arms…

capture creative black & white

There are perhaps more photographers creating black and white images now than ever before. Producing good results is also easier than before, thanks mainly to the convenience that digital imaging has introduced. There’s no need to stay up all night in your blacked-out bathroom, elbow-deep in smelly chemicals – just turn on your computer, open Silver Efex Pro and away you go! So why is it that so many digitally generated black and white images are, for want of a better word, boring? As soon as you remove colour from an image, it ceases to be realistic, which basically means you can throw caution to the wind and let your creative hair down. There’s no need to follow any so-called rules, no need to stick with convention. You have carte blanche…

add feeling

It’s difficult to define exactly what elevates an image from run of the mill to art. Feeling and emotion have a lot to do with it. If you stir something in the viewer, make them react – either positively or negatively – then you’re well on your way. Working in black and white can achieve that in itself, simply because it allows us to take a step back from reality and throw off the shackles of familiarity, but you need to do more than simply remove colour to create an artistic black-and-white image. The quality of light can make a difference. Think about how light and weather affect your state of mind. When the sun’s shining and fluffy white clouds are drifting across the sky, the world is warm and welcoming…

choose your technique

Location and light are certainly important when your quest is to create artistic black-and-white images. However, the techniques you use while shooting those images also play an important role, because they help to define the way your subject is recorded and the mood of the final image. It also allows you to put your own creative stamp on those images. Capturing motion can make a big difference to impact and appeal, as it adds an extra dimension that takes the image beyond the realms of a ‘straight’ photograph. Instead of merely freezing a moment, you’re recording the passing of time in some way, whether it’s a fraction of a second or many minutes. There are numerous ways to record motion. The most popular these days is by using one of the many…

try artistic approaches

Photographs tend to be considered more artistic when they don’t actually look like conventional photographs, and this certainly seems to be the case when it comes to selling prints. Non-photographers are more likely to splash out when they have no idea how a photograph was created – because they wouldn’t be able to take such an image themselves. Infrared images definitely fall into that category – they have an eeriness that immediately adds an artistic feel to every shot you take. The best way to shoot infrared is by getting a camera converted professionally – if you have an old DSLR gathering dust, it would be ideal. Advanced Camera Services (advancedcameraservices.co.uk) is the best-known service in the UK, and charges around £300 for IR conversion. You can also pick up converted…
