4 tips to better mobile videos

Thanks to YouTube I got these handy little tips in an email today and I thought this would be the perfect thing to share with you being it is the time of year that people tend to do more videos.

Before I get into them I went looking for an image to include and when I saw this one I knew I had to add another tip. The viewer will always get to see more if you hold your phone sideways like the picture shows.

4 tips to boost your mobile video qualityYou don’t need fancy video equipment to make high-quality videos. Creating content from your smartphone can happen anytime and anywhere. Check out these tips and tricks to get the most out of your mobile masterpieces:

Prep for success: Make sure your phone’s lens is clean, and switch to “Do Not Disturb” to avoid distractions.

All of the lights: Natural lighting is the key to quality. Be sure to steer clear of harsh shadows, especially near your face.

Loud & clear: Although an external one is ideal, your phone’s mic will do the trick. Keep your phone close, and avoid echoey sets for the best possible sound.

Action: Use the grid feature on your phone to keep your eyes in the top third of the video. Also, focus on your phone’s camera lens rather than yourself to avoid looking off camera

That’s what I have for you today! Have a great weekend and enjoy the lovely weather while it’s here.
