No Access to a Video Studio? Here's How Videohaus Can Still Help!
Video content has become a powerful communication, education, and entertainment tool.
However, not everyone has access to a professional video studio to create high-quality videos. That's where Videohaus comes to the rescue! Our self-service studios are certainly helpful tools for video newbies, but we have a host of other solutions for those who prefer to (or only can!) record videos remotely.
Whether you're a YouTuber, online coach, marketer, or social media manager, Videohaus is here to help you bring your vision to life, regardless of location or resources.
Record video from your smartphone
The points below will help remote shooters understand how to shoot their videos and send it to Videohaus.
Landscape or Portait?
Consider which platform you are filming content for. Nothing destroys a YouTube or landing page video quite like two black vertical bars running the length of it! Use landscape orientation rather than portrait while recording to avoid making this simple error. That is unless, of course, you are recording content for Reels, TikTok, or Youtube Shorts!
Fill the frame with your topic now that you're recording in the correct orientation. To make a more aesthetically appealing scenario, you may also position them or it slightly off-center. Simply experiment to see what looks best.
Go into the camera settings in the majority of phone camera applications. You can enable gridlines so that when shooting, there are vertical and horizontal grids on the screen. The "rule of thirds" is the most often used framing technique, so if you enable a 3x3 grid in your camera app, you may align the subject with one of the vertical "third" lines or place the horizon line with the horizontal lines.
Shooting the subject matter from various focal lengths and angles is also a good idea if you want to edit the video afterward.
Experiment with wide, close-up, and portrait photos. While tighter images evoke emotion or highlight minute details, wider shots are better for setting the atmosphere and situating the subject.
Ask any seasoned photographer: digital zoom is the worst thing ever. Fortunately, we now live in a time when many of the best smartphones have lossless or "optical" zoom capabilities, allowing you to zoom in without losing clarity.
You'll need a handset with a respectable optical zoom, like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, to zoom in while shooting without sacrificing the clear, vibrant quality you want in videos. One of the additional cameras on the back of smartphones that feature multiple cameras is frequently a "telephoto" lens.
You'll need to come closer to your subject or use an attachment, like the clip-on lenses from Moment, for instance, if your smartphone doesn't have optical zoom. In general, you should always approach your subject as closely as you can, particularly for close-ups of faces!
We've all seen the videos with the person with the yellow skin and the red eyes against really dark surroundings. Who's to be blamed? Yes, the photographer is to blame, but so is the flash! You see, LED lights on smartphones are too bright and can quickly alter the color temperature of images. In the end, footage frequently still has terrible lighting. You'll need to locate another light source if you wish to take a picture at night. You may also utilize the night mode on your phone's camera if it has one.
Another thing to have in mind when considering flash and lighting, in general, is to avoid strongly backlit scenarios. You can see their faces when individuals are backlit, but your smartphone cameras typically can't. Thus, its video usually shows a brilliant light haloing a dark figure. Additionally, that figure won't have any discernible characteristics, indicating that you failed to capture what you were attempting to capture. You need to pay attention to that unless your phone has some pretty sophisticated HDR features.
Try creating a simple light configuration to steer clear of this circumstance. Moving to one side or another, or turning your subject to face the light, will help those in real-time recording situations.
3-point lighting is a technique commonly used in photography and filmmaking. It involves three light sources: key light, fill light, and backlight. By adjusting brightness, lamps or phone torches can be used to achieve this setup, enhancing subject visibility and depth.
You should strive to lessen the impact of illumination on your end as well, even if some default camera programs attempt to do so.
Since smartphone cameras and their standard camera applications lack finer controls and other features, they just aren't as good as the powerhouses produced by Canon, Panasonic, or Sony, despite their improvement.
Therefore, consider purchasing accessories that unlock your camera's full potential if you want to improve your smartphone video recording abilities without investing in an expensive DSLR. From inventive lens add-ons to tripod mounting solutions, everything is available.
