Capture Content Like A
You should change the quality to the highest
setting on your phone. Here is how you do that.
Settings > Camera > Record Video > 4K @ 60 FPS
Camera App > Settings > Video Size > 3840 X 2160
When shooting footage, you want to shoot horizontally, not vertically. This is imperative to the width of the shot.
Ideally, you should have your phone on a
tripod to ensure a steady and consistent shot.
If you do not have a tripod, you can always set
something up to act as a “holder” for your phone.
The “back camera” should always have the highest quality, therefore
make sure you are not using the “selfie” camera. Also, make sure to
wait 2-3 seconds before speaking after you’ve pushed the red button
to record your video. Just gives us a buffer space and makes it cleaner.
Lighting is KEY!
WINDOW FACING YOU
As you can see, you want to use the natural light from a window if you don't have a ring light. Always place the window BEHIND the camera. You should be LOOKING at the window when you are recording.
WINDOW NEVER BEHIND
You never want to put the window behind you. You will become a shadow in the shot without proper lighting.
Sound is very important as well. Do your best to minimize all sound around you.
This includes family members, dogs, televisions, radio.
You want to have it as quiet as possible so we can clearly hear you and your story.
To get the best visual aesthetic from the shot, try to center yourself in the frame. Ideally, you want to shoot straight on, not from under or above the subject.
