well what's going on guys Gavin peacock here flip society I'm just out with the pooch right now I'm gonna walk I've completely lost them I have no idea where the heck you went but as you can see it is basically fall we're going evil totally fall we're going to know our December in a few days so winter is upon us I figure that's a good time to start thinking about travel escaping the cold with Canada coming up I made up the most brutal amount to get a good microphone into a GoPro to get audio for my phone on a gimbal right now so you're seeing this nice and gitmo mounted but GoPro is below I want to talk fast in case I run into battery that's stupid planes overhead anyway it's like a nice way off 10 what I'm calling hints and tips for making your travel video and experiences better mainly using GoPro cameras and bigger cameras they're all gonna apply we're going to this really quick starting with number one I'm saying keep it natural and enjoy yourself that's the idea of very natural occurring shots versus the force setup shot we don't want to spend too much time or energy or ruining or missing opportunities on the vacation by trying to force really set up a shot you're already smooth go through everything as is and just enjoy yourself don't don't let shooting the trip stress you have focus on having fun and the good footage will follow that being said start shooting immediately I always kind of cringe when I see just file number one the first shot of a trip usually I start hammering shots off in the airport right away and then you're just gonna start filling cards you always want a ton of footage to refer to when you get back more footage is better you want to be able to get rid of all the clutter and use the best of the best of the best and if you've seen my how to edit like a video pro series you'll know what I'm talking about there's seven parts you should go watch them okay going on to number two I'm calling it son flights and seats before a trip I started visualizing the trip and starting from even booking your your plane seats you want to think about or at least I am weird and I think about if I'm taking off in the morning where is the Sun gonna be often times some of the best shots you're ever gonna get her off a plane window coming in or taking off from crazy areas of the world so I physically think about that taking off from Toronto or landing Porter I want to come in landing with the Toronto skyline on my proper side I know when the wind changes that screws you over so and sometimes total lottery but Sun setting seats selection I'm always going for a window seat always trading with whoever I'm traveling with to get the good shots I bring suction cup mounts it's a little you know one or two point one in there suction cup mount your cameras to the windows so the vibrations the plane go away for your time-lapse fun flight seats that all kind of ties in to each other even when I go places there's these Google apps you can get now without our sunrise and sunset detectors it's often Jamaica on one trip you can go any any time in the year to see exactly where a Sun will be rising or setting on what time it is if you're going on a crazy hike that's a good way to time your hike arrival to get the ultimate shot when you get there it's happened to me a bunch of times I'm going to be showing footage of everything as we go that's number two okay moving on number three Carrie and I during our euro trip PSU need to definitely watch this euro trip after I've been talking and using footage from it came up with the abbreviation ABC which stands for always be charging so on your trips you were bringing numerous spare batteries I bring at least four if I can the GoPro power bank I'm gonna show this bag later bring your battery power banks and then car adapters and wall chargers any power charging source you can find you're bringing because you always want to be charging when we were driving we were charging when we were hiking I was charging my GoPros off the power bank in my backpack no battery power same as no SD card space no footage and then therefore you're not documenting the trip anymore so ABC always be charging okay number four or I wrote it down as number three point five is bring those anti-fog inserts for the GoPro case I think you can get away with using toilet paper tissue paper if you had to but the anti-fog inserts the cheapest accessory you can buy has saved me in crazy situations Jamaica one time was ruined rented cliff jumping the transition from hot to cold condenses the inside of your camera case and you get the fog and not just ruined your shots so you don't want that while you're doing an epic hike with a waterfall jump at the end or anything like so so anti-fog inserts number four is that kiss principal keeping it simple stupid that's in terms of me packing I try to I pack the ton for my euro trip of the accessories just thinking what I might need but if you're going on a hike you wanna just minimize your stuff to maybe four or five accessories even less if you have to don't get totally overwhelmed with equipment most the time and in terms of organization label your SD cards know which one you're using each day I switch find out a lot thinking I might run out of this one I'll start with a fresh one then you're going backs you're dealing with different days around half ends of the card just keep a way of organizing your cards if you need to and again this all applies to a weekend you know just a little getaway or a full three week four weeks six week mega vacation trip around the world so keep it simple moving on number five thinking differently is the sense of how am I going to get a different shot than every other person is gonna get so easiest cues to start off everyone hold the camera at chest height and they point and shoot straight off no one's changing angle so think about getting lower getting higher go to a different location we have tons of examples like this so we just traversed this mountain terrain to this wonderful view but you're just in I was just in that and what's terrifying is that it is full death and even in different conditions do the thing that other people don't want to do we went up to a crazy hike on our really rainy shitty day footage might not be the best but we ended up being the only human beings up at a spot that's normally completely packed so if you take it that way take it that way you're gonna get shots that are unique to anyone else's yeah number five think differently when you're going for your shots what is everyone else doing and having make that a little bit okay number six is the idea of you know later on post-editing think of a funny theme or common transition you're gonna be doing it through the video you can make it anything up to be able to link back and be able to jump cut again look at my editing series you'll see all the sorts of ideas on how to match action match cuts jump cuts you'll see what we got now you know listen the guy I follow they do the 360 spin with the camera juji move foo does the head bang to the lancing cut shot on action I love to do my high five match on actions think of anything like that one simple thing could be anything that'll help you tie shots together for changing scenes so it's nice to have a nice transition sometimes you can just do the cold cut and go from you know I'm in a park time on top of the mountain but there's always easy ways the fist bump was always made classic something like that just to keep it going quickly jumping back to five upper had to say do the earlier again you're going higher going to sketchy places just different places to get a different shot often people are lazy then I want to get a first thing if you're the first one out there before anyone else or be kind of risky and be the last one out there you'll get the better shot that no one else is around for okay number seven I had written down just as proper power supply I bought I think it was an actual GoPro power converter kit because I knew the voltages and the plugs are all different over there and the thought was I was gonna be powering a camera over night out on balconies to get StarLab shots and then I did some quick tests and whatever voltage was coming into the system was zapping the GoPro and putting surge lines down my frames I don't feel be able to find still shots to give you an example but essentially ruined the effect of being able to do any night lapses on that trip and I had to rely on one night of just doing for batteries which is annoying because your timing and alarm to wake up to manually change the battery which is no fun so I'd say seek out local power supply local plug adapters I don't know if any of you guys have run into that issue with the GoPro doing the same thing so number eight I have as the gimbal gimbal always if you can you don't own a gimbal watch my steady tricks video I have 10 tips on their how to make perfectly steady footage without owning a gimbal I'm on the smooth three from Zeon right now again bolt this thing is a beast ok any camera you use from the crappiest camera to the top top top will look way more professional if you use a gimbal with it so that's a simple advice and if you want to see the power of a gimbal with a GoPro you can watch my compilation of that all my best of the best of the best shots with GoPro and gimbal again it looks awesome so gimbal maybe future investment if you need it farmers club Connolly's out for the GoPro now and there's many other versions if you need to you and again there's tips and tricks that I've given out that creates smoothness without only a gimbal if money and budget aren't an option ok moving on what yeah ok number 9 is simply I'm calling it the ebon flow I've been flown the way back and that's actually kind of similar to going places earlier getting different angles were they tourists aren't and the be Evan flow was the idea of the waves of actual human being pattern have you think if the idea like a tour bus arrived 60 people get out sixty people are gonna crowd to a location chaos eventually Teeter off usually if you could watch patterns we did this on the tourist bridge the High Line 179 I think we're it was called we simply just waited it out watch watch watch and eventually is crowded day as it was the whole bridge cleared out and we had it to herself to get awesome shots and that became a funny theme the whole time through we always just joked let's wait for the ebb and flow wait for the up and flow so if you're patient waited out human beings are always working a pattern sucker huh doctor and lastly guys number 10 I'm just calling it the mastery of editing being that story teller you could be gone and gather all the footage in the world that still doesn't mean anything unless you put it into a meaningful timeline and create a masterpiece with it again a lot of time spent I you take you a while to get through but it's worth it my seven series videos of how to edit like a pro it's the old idea of telling a story you got to put time into the edit you can't just slap randomized footage on top of a track music track and think it's gonna work spend time matching your shots matching to the beat of the song finding clips are gonna segue together that look good together that have a theme you make a story decide how you're gonna tell the story is it's fully sequential I think my Richard Manley was almost more or less sequential so I just want to keep that short and sweet there it all is as always thank you for subscribing and liking and always feel free to comment below I'm always checking and reading comments I will answer any questions you have I just want to do one final push for all you guys to watch my Eurotrip video edit everything I just mentioned is utilized in that video not because it's my own but I'm just saying it's one of the both travel videos ever seen so boom boom you should watch that video I've also laid down the past few uploads all my gear laid out talked about I've given you steady tricks on how to keep your GoPro steady to get those professional shots I've given you your top 10 GoPro mistakes and now you have your little travel tips also you have the entire a series that I mentioned before it's seven videos they're pretty long but you're gonna learn a crapload from it so I would suggest sitting down and practicing with a video of your own and as you go and that's it for now if you guys have any suggestions for further videos I'll put those up and as always I will eventually be back into the action adventure and crazy stuff use to see on my channel so here we go winter is upon us in Ontario Canada Toronto that's it for now signing out see you guys so thinking differently so I call it higher lower I don't know what I call it
