Smartphones with a good camera and the ability to record high definition videos are no longer difficult to find because you do not have to break the bank to get one. So, anyone can record videos. However, the question now is if you are shooting or recording your video the right way. It is important to ask this question since using poor video-making techniques will probably result in a poor video. In line with this, we share tips to record smartphone videos like a pro.
If you want people to watch your video in full on a computer screen, keep your smartphone horizontal when you are recording. Shooting a video clip with your phone upright may not be an issue because you are watching it on your device with a vertical screen. But when you watch that same video on a horizontal computer screen, you won’t enjoy it.
2.Keep it steady
Hold your phone firmly with both hands, and lock your elbows into your body for stability. This will prevent shaky hands.
3.Be conscious of light
If you want to shoot good videos, you need to know how to work with the available light and use it to your advantage. When shooting outside, find a position where the sun is evenly lighting the scene. If some parts of the shot appear too bright or too dark, find another angle that allows you to still achieve the shot.
4.Get close to your subject
Staying physically close to your subject ensures better image quality, less digital noise and better focus in your videos.
5.Always use the back camera
This may seem like an obvious rule, but it’s easy to forget. While front cameras have gotten more reliable, they have not yet reached the point where you can shoot decent videos with them. Unless you’re recording a short video of yourself, always use the back camera for your videos.
6.Edit and share your videos
You can download free video editing apps to edit your videos. This will enhance the quality of your videos.
Whatever the make of your smartphone, the audio or sound setting is usually moderate. That is, it is not too high nor is it too low. However, when the sound emanating from your smartphone is lower than normal, there must be something wrong.

This is another way to boost the sound of your smartphone. You can buy a dedicated accessory like a headphone. With this, you don’t have to always rely on the sound of your phone. The caution here is that you should not tune it too high. This can be dangerous.
3.Install an equalizer app
Not all music app come with an equalizer. An equalizer is usually used to boost the sound on your smartphone. You can download one as there are so many online. Alternatively, you can get a music player with an equalizer.
4.Update your phone
