One of the great new features many mobile phones provide is the ability to shoot HD video, but having quality video at your fingertips isn’t a guarantee you’ll shoot good video.
A whole generation of people have grown accustomed to shooting photos on their phones, and they do it holding the phones upright… vertically. That’s fine for photos, but not for video.
If you’re shooting video on your mobile phone, please turn the phone so that you’re shooting video horizontally. Think about the screen where you’ll be displaying your video. TV screens… horizontal. Computer screens… horizontal. YouTube… horizontal.
Flip the phone 90-degrees counterclockwise and you’re on your way to shooting better video.
