GoPro : ProTune : Working with your GoPro Protune Footage

It wont take you long to stumble upon your "protune" setting within the gopro menus after you get one.  If you're like I was when I first got my GoPro Hero 3 Black in 2013, you may even avoid tinkering in there until you know what the deal is.  Well this is a little post to give you example of what protune is and isn't and what it can allow you to do, and hopefully help you decide whether or not you need to shoot in it.

If I could lengthen the title of today's post, I would call it "The Wedding Dress Photo is only as good as the place you have to hang it".  So when we arrived at this wedding last month, I was so pleased to see a nice frosted glass door in the bathroom connected to the master bedroom.  Sure its nice to go with the old faithful, "hang in front of the window" but what about when there is too much near the window, ugly hotel curtains, other objects that take away the balance.  
Let's talk about what I love about being able to shoot the bridal dress this way and look at the full dress.
