You want to give your live stream a professional cinematic, filmic look? No problem, I’ve got you covered. I created a set of filmic LUTs for OBS Studio and this video explains how to set up OBS Studio. Have fun!
Live streaming has become immensely popular over the years. Whether Facebook, YouTube, Periscope, Twitch – there are plenty of options for your online live show. The technical aspect of building a live streaming setup can be intimidating, however, GoPro makes it very easy with its GoPro App. Let me show you how it works.
Just in case you want to have a bit more options and flexibility, you can capture the live feed of your camera’s HDMI out with a inexpensive capture card (Elgato CamLink 4K, BlackMagic UltraStudio MiniRecorder) and use OBS Studio on your PC or Mac.
As you can tell, live streaming isn’t complicated and camera companies like GoPro make it very easy to share your story in the moment with either family, friends, or even a wider audience on YouTube and Facebook.

Photography/Cinematography filters are glass elements that get typically screwed onto the front of the camera lens. While some use filters to simply protect the front elements of the lens, there are a variety of filters available that allow for artistic control over the photo or video. Using filters is common among DSLR/mirrorless shooters, however, filters can be easily used for shooting with your GoPro also. They are a lot of fun!
In this video I explain how to easily attach a filter to your GoPro. Further below you’ll find an outline of what the different filters do and how they are being typically used.
Primarily used for protecting the lens. However UV filters can help with:
- Boost contrast when shooting outdoors
- Removes UV light and blue cast in very bright sun light
Reduces the polarization effect caused by sunlight:
- Enhances the color of the sky
- Eliminates the reflection visible in water/glass
Blocks light, so that less light passes through the lens reaching the sensor:
- Allows for creative control over the shutter speed
- Allows for maintaining a 180 angle shutter speed in bright sun light for video
Adds artistic effects to photos/video:
- Orange: to intensify the orange and red of a sunset
- Blue: to intensify ocean or blue sky
- Grey: to intensify/add drama to a cloudy sky
