Anthony Walsh shares the settings and mounts he uses while shooting with his tool of choice to capture adventures: GoPro.
"The mount I use most is the MyGo Mouth Mount. It sees what you see and it’s easy to grab and get that selfie. Shoot video 4:3 ratio 960 and 1440 to get that tall image. For photos I use time-lapse mode interview .5 interval"

"Hand-held is a simple GoPro angle that’s great for filming or taking photos of family or friends, as well as filming waves. With that, you have three fields of view: wide, medium or narrow. Anything close or POV wide, 10 feet and under, medium; and for beyond that, narrow. One of my favorites is 720p narrow at 240fps. It’s great for slowing the footage down, with good quality, and it’s more up-close and personal."
"Wondering how to get photos in the water where you can see above and below the surface? Use a dome port like the one I use from Knekt. I use the burst function for photos (30 photos in one second) and a high frame rate for video (1080p 120fps) to get those cool moments of both worlds."
"I am in love with nighttime long exposures. I’m learning more and more every night I do it. It’s super fun. If you’re somewhere with no light or traffic, or you’re traveling to Arctic areas like Iceland, try long exposure on time-lapse mode, play with lights like Litragear and have fun. These are 30-second exposure time-lapse in Iceland with the Northern Lights. To add battery life, I added a Refuel action pack, which gave me battery for 24 hours."
"The easiest surf mount is the board mount, it’s hands-free and is great for looking back and getting yourself in those moments. It’s POV, so shooting the 4:3 ratio modes are best at 960 and 1440. With photo, use time-lapse mode with an interval of .5 seconds."
"The tail mount is great for clean, barreling waves, but it’s tricky to surf with. Shoot video 4:3 ratio 960 and 1440 to get that tall image. For photos I use time-lapse mode interview .5 interval."
"The backpack mount is one of the most difficult to surf with. It’s great because you can see both your hands and it looks like someone is on your back filming. Shoot video 4:3 ratio 960 and 1440 to get that tall image. For photos I use time-lapse mode interview .5 interval."
