Tips for Getting Great Videos on Your Smartphone

Have you ever watched a video and been frustrated that two black bars on either side of the video prevent it from showing on your full screen? You’re not alone and fixing it is simple— hold the phone horizontally instead of vertically. It’s that simple!


Here are some other tips for filming on your phone:


  1. Be aware of your surroundings. If you are recording, find a quiet place if possible.
  2. Lighting doesn’t have to be perfect, but make sure it’s easy to see what is going on in your video.
  3. Keep the phone stable or use a tripod.


Cameras on phones have improved over the years, but nothing replaces filming a video on a professional camera with a great lens. So, filming on a phone should only be used in a pinch.
