GOPRO HERO SHOTS ON THE STICK! By Pat Ford

SOL & MAR MAGAZINE


SOL & MAR MAGAZINE

A

year or so ago Capt Chris Sheeder from Casa Vieja Lodge in Guatemala sent me a photo of an angler holding a sailfish alongside the boat that looked like it was shot from the water. I didn’t think anyone was jumping out of the Rum Line to snap photos but I couldn’t believe the quality of the photo. Fast forward to my next trip to Casa Vieja and this is what I learned. Chris has a 7’-8’ GoPro stick made from a fiberglass gaff handle. (You can now buy them at Bass Pro) Prior to this all the ‘selfie sticks’ I’d seen were under 4’ feet long which is too short to do Chris’ trick shot. Chris has a tripod mount for the stick and then attaches a ‘ball joint’ connection for the camera so that it’s facing back at an angle. The mate holds the GoPro out in front of the angler to get the shot, then Chris crops him out of the photo and winds up with a perfect self portrait. The challenge is to angle and hold the GoPro in the right position to get the angler and the mate holding the fish centered and this takes practice. It doesn’t matter if the GoPro is shooting upside down and actually the upside down position works better at times. It depends which side of the boat you are on, etc, but the most important thing is to have the sun shining on the subjects. If you are on the shaded side of the boat the colors will not be as vivid. Now for the good stuff…you can’t see what the camera is seeing and you can’t snap the photo when the Go Pro is 8’ away from you. This is the key: Set the GoPro to the TIME-LAPSE mode and set it to take a photo every .5 seconds. Set the photo quality to the highest quality jpeg and to the WIDE format. When the angler/fish posing is ready, start the photos and stick out the GoPro. Since you cant see what you’re shooting, move the camera around to cover what look like the best angles. After about 20 – 30 seconds, bring it in and check your

shots, make any necessary adjustments and then shoot another batch or two. Be sure to clean off the lens often – water drops ruin photos and there are always water drops! When you are finished you should have about 100 photos – a dozen of which will be great and the other 90% will suck. Delete the bad ones and edit the good ones. They are fine as shot for social media, but if you want to print one you have to convert it to 300 dpi in your editing program. CHis’ brother Capt Mike Sheeder (Casa Vieja Lodge – INTENSITY) took the system a step further and made himself a giant stick – probably 15’ long . He shoots the hero shots in 4K video and then takes a still shot off the video. He gets fantastic results with jumping fish by freezing the video then taking a screen shot. His jumping behind the boat shots are fantastic. I haven’t tried that yet so stay tuned, but in the meantime check out Mike’s Face Book page. I have used the Hero4 in it’s waterproof housing but recently got the Hero5 which is supposed to be waterproof. I only used to a few times and never really submerged it but condensation developed in the LED view screen on the front. I’m told that is the first stage of a terminal problem. GoPro replaced it promptly and I purchased the waterproof housing for the new Hero5 just to be safe. I don’t want my equipment failing on a trip even if it’s under warranty. Always remember that the key to good photography is ‘Spray and Pray’ – shoot a lot and the dump the bad ones – actually dump everything that is not ‘outstanding’ and do some editing on those. Only show people your best shots and they will think you are an expert. If you waste their time showing them junk, that’s all they will remember.

Coral Gables:

A Taste of Spain

C

oral Gables, which was first incorporated by George Merrick in 1925, is one of the more charming and oldest neighborhoods of South Florida. The city is known for its luxurious green avenues and by the Mediterranean Revival architectural style. This Mediterranean style was inspired by James Deering’s estate, “Villa Vizcaya.” Mr. Deering’s dream was to bring the images and architecture of Spain to this area, which is made apparent from the architecture of the houses and to the names of the streets. Coral Gables has many historic buildings to visit such as the Coral Gables City Hall, The Biltmore Hotel, Venetian pool, the Douglas Arches and even the house of George Merrick himself! Another attraction of the city is the Biltmore Hotel which was first built in 1926.

80

SOL & MAR MAGAZINE

The hotel is considered one of the icons of the city which perfectly displays Merrick’s vision for his Mediterranean architecture. Back in the 1930’s, it was a place to host fashion shows, galas, golf tournaments and many more events for the wealthy. The hotel later became a hospital during WWII. Then, in 1987, The Biltmore was added to the National Registry of Historic Places. The Venetian pool is another favorite spot not only for locals for also for tourists. The pool was built in 1923 from a coral rock quarry which is a spring fed surrounded by grottos, waterfalls and coral caves. Architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed New York’s Central Park,


helped the city attract potential buyers by the use of wide tree lined avenues, monumental buildings, winding roadways, green space, ornate plazas, and fountains. A good example of Olmsted’s work can be seen on Coral Way heading towards Miracle Mile, where the trees arch over you as you drive along. The city is known for its gourmet restaurants as well as many areas to shop, such as Village of Merrick Park and Miracle Mile.

University of Miami is also in Coral Gables, which is ranked as one of the top universities in the nation and also the home for the famous football team “The Miami Hurricanes.” In the last couple of years, Coral Gables

has experienced a growth of condos with unit prices fluctuating from about $115,000 to $899,000 and luxurious homes from $400,000 to $2.5 million according to the MLS. If you have any questions about Real Estate or how to invest in Coral Gables or any area in South Florida, do not hesitate in contact me.

WINTER FISHING IN SOUTH FLORIDA By Dr. Martin Aróstegui

W

hen we think about winter fishing in South Florida, the first thing that comes to mind is the run of Sailfish that visit us every winter. This past December my son Martini and I went fishing right in front of Miami but instead of targeting Sailfish we went bottom fishing for deep water species and also fly fishing for mackerel with our dear friend Captain Bouncer Smith. All of our trips were quite successful, a combination of Bouncer’s guiding skills and Martini’s enthusiasm for deep dropping with manual gear. I went mostly to keep them company but managed to catch some nice snappers and groupers myself. Fishing with your friends and family is the best way to share good times with those that matter a lot in your life.

PESCA DE INVIERNO EN EL SUR DE FLORIDA por Dr. Martin Aróstegui

C

uando pensamos en la pesca de invierno en el sur de Florida, lo primero que viene a la mente es la corrida del pez vela que nos visita todos los inviernos. El pasado mes de diciembre, mi hijo Martini y yo fuimos a pescar justo en frente de Miami, pero en lugar de buscar el pez vela, pescamos peces de aguas profundas y también hicimos pesca con mosca junto a nuestro querido amigo, el capitán Bouncer Smith. Todos nuestros viajes fueron bastante exitosos, una combinación de las habilidades de guía de Bouncer y el entusiasmo de Martini por la pesca profunda con el equipo manual. Fui principalmente para hacerles compañía, pero me las arreglé para atrapar algunos buenos pargos y meros. Pescar junto a sus amigos y familiares es la mejor manera de compartir unos buenos momentos con aquellos que importan mucho para usted en su vida.
