RIP, Go Pro
I’ve been trying to get a bit more creative with my photography lately so over the last few weeks, I have been taking out my GoPro camera with me to the golf course and driving range.
So this morning, I went out to the driving range to work on my golf and my photography at the same time.
As you can see from the picture above, I set up the GoPro on an upside down range ball bucket a few feet in front of me – right down the line. I set the camera to take a shot every 2 seconds. I’m about an 18 handicap but waste a large portion of strokes on the green putting. I’ve been hitting the ball on my full shots fairly well recently so I got a bit cocky in the placement of the camera.
In retrospect, I should have placed the camera to the side of the balls line of travel. After a few decent shots, I skulled a ball right at the camera. Here’s the GoPro after I fetched it from the driving range.
I need to work on my golf game!
