@snapair About the Shot - Bird and Purple Plastic Cup: #GoPro's thrive on capturing bright, warm colors. With that in mind, I wanted to get a shot with a different colour, so I found this purple plastic cup at home and went across the road to feed the birds. I glued my #HERO4Session to the bottom of the cup and layed it on the sand. I turned on the Wi-Fi on my camera and used the #GoProApp to frame the shot. After that, I put some pieces of bread right in front of the cup and walked away. How the Shot was Captured: I started watching the birds and as they grew more confident, they started to approach the cup to pick up some food. After a few minutes of waiting, one of the birds went to get a piece of bread and I quickly pressed the shutter buttom to grab this image. For this shot I used my HERO4 Session set up at .5s on timelapse mode.
