Check out our 3 tips for shooting better video with your smartphone before you get started.
Tip #1 | Shoot landscape
Nothing ruins great footage like having two black vertical bars along both sides of your video. To avoid this, make sure to use landscape (horizontal) orientation and not portrait (vertical) orientation while recording.
Not only does landscape make your video seem more aesthetically pleasing in general, it’ll also make it more enjoyable to watch. Plus, you’ll capture more in the actual video.
So just remember: never hold your phone vertically while recording.
Tip #2 | Good lighting
Proper lighting has a huge impact on smartphone cameras because they have smaller image sensors and lenses. Try as much as possible to shoot your video in brightly lit areas. This will help avoid unnecessary shadows and grainy areas in your video. Conversely, you also must be careful not to point the camera directly at bright light sources, which will cause unusable overexposed footage and lens flaring.
Lighting should be stable and steady; the image sensors in most smartphones do not react to dramatic changes in lighting very quickly. If the light is still making it tough to shoot your video try working with back-lighting and white balance settings if your phone or app provides them. Most phones also offer “touch focusing” in the event your camera is focusing on the wrong area of your composition.
After setting the focus on the most important aspect of the video, the automatic exposure control will have an easier time making small adjustments if lighting condition begins to change.
Tip #3 | Good audio makes great video
Poor audio quality can ruin a good video. While you want your video to look good, the quality of your audio is more important than the video – so it should matter as much, if not more. Unfortunately, the built-in microphone in most smartphones (if not all of them) is both low quality and improperly placed. It is very common to catch wind and unnecessary environmental noise that will compete with or drown out any important audio while shooting video outside. This is almost impossible to edit out later. It is advisable to shoot your video in a quiet place, preferably indoors when possible with less ambient noise.
Make sure to stay as close to the audio source as possible and try this little trick: use your hand to cover around the phone’s microphone (but don’t completely cover it). This way, unwanted noise can be reduced, which will improve your final video.
