When recording select the front camera so that you can see yourself. Make sure you are in frame and that your whole face, head and the tops of your shoulder’s are visible and that your face is in focus at all times.
If possible, select the highest quality, such as HD, for your video in the settings.
Aim to record smartphone/tablet video in well-lit areas to prevent shadows and dark areas on the clip, however, don’t aim directly at any light source — this will make your video virtually impossible to watch. Because the sensors in cell phone & tablet cameras tend to be very basic, they are unable to handle wide variations in lighting, so be sure to record in an area that has a steady light source like in front of a window or lamp. Place the phone or tablet with the recording camera lens pointed away from the light source and position yourself with the light shining on your face and body.
It is really important that we can hear what you are saying so you need to take steps to record the audio as best as possible. Unfortunately, some built-in microphones on phones & tablets are not very high quality and can be susceptible to recording wind and other ambient noise.
For best results find a quite place free from outside noises. Close doors and windows to create your own ‘quite space’ and make sure you are close enough to your smartphone or tablet to be heard clearly.
Finally, bearing in mind all the above tips, make a short test clip to check you have everything set up correctly.
That’s it! Your ready to go and record some amazing films!
