5 ways to make your iPhone videos look like you’re a profesh film maker
Let’s face it: home movie footage has never been top quality. Those clips of you opening your Christmas gifts circa 1993? They were a shaky, blurry, out-of-focus mess. (An adorable mess, but a mess nonetheless.) And the quality of today’s iPhone videos isn’t that much better — in fact, we sometimes look at our Snapchats and wonder how technology has come so far, and yet has hardly changed at all.
Fear not, though, friends. If you want to make your iPhone videos look like you graduated from the New York Film Academy (or at least look like you took a weekend-long filmmaking course) we’re here to help. Below, find five tips for improving the quality of your iPhone vids.
1. Don’t use the iPhone’s pinch-to-zoom function.
2. Lock the focus and exposure on your Camera app.
The auto focus on iPhone is pretty effective for still photos, but it can create unnecessary blur when you’re shooting video. If you’re shooting a single subject, set the shot and then follow these instructions to lock the focus and exposure on your camera.
