Tips for recording video on your smartphone
CHECK YOUR VIDEO'S ORIENTATION
Be sure to orient your phone horizontally (landscape mode).
AVOID DISTRACTING BACK LIGHTING
Avoid having a window or light source behind you, since it will make you appear silhouetted.
REDUCE MOVEMENT AND SHAKING
Hold the phone with two hands for stability or use something stable to set it against; better yet if you have a tripod, use that! This will avoid shaky videos.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE LOUD AND CLEAR
Most smartphones come with good microphones, just make sure it isn’t covered (including by your hand or fingers as you hold the phone). As well, avoid recording outside if it is windy or near heavy traffic.
Road safety is a shared responsibility, regardless of how you use the road.
