How to make beautiful content using a smartphone for vlog

While making the Skardu travel vlog, I realized that we could quite easily make a beautiful piece of content using a smartphone. But the lessons were far more detailed. Here’s some of what I learned during the process.

1. Set your camera’s resolution HIGH – what looks good on a smartphone screen may not look great during the edit stage on your computer! On the Galaxy S10+ you can shoot in 4k UHD at 60fps which is very cool.

2. Get creative with your angles. What a smartphone may lack in depth of field or zoom, it makes up for in terms of lightness and portability. You can easily shoot from almost any angle, so use it!

3. Be wary of the “hand shake” – wobbliness can spoil your footage. You can use mobile gimbals but the S10+ does have a SuperSteady video feature, which helps with this issue.

The truth is, you CAN make a perfectly beautiful piece of content using a smartphone. The most important thing is to get creative and tell a story that’s important to you in terms that are relatable to your audience. 😊 Go for it!
