The Best Method to Shoot Professional Videos with your Smartphone's Camera

Thanks for the smartphone, recording video is not so easy or easy.

Everyone's pocket has a powerful video camera: a smartphone. And with a little practice and access to some major tips, even you - yes, you can start recording great vogue, or even just by using your smartphone, an indie film or documentary record can do.

In this way, Pocket-Lint has scored nine tips in an attempt to help you capture the best, whatever you want. Although some tips may seem obvious, following all of them should be the result of amazing video every time.

Tips for better video recording with your smartphone:

Tips for better video recording with your smartphone


Nothing ruins great footage like two black vertical straps on both sides of your video. To avoid this amateur mistake, do not use Landscape Orientation and Portrait Orientation while recording.

Not only does the landscape seem more aesthetically pleasing to your video, but it will make it more enjoyable when you look at a widescreen or television. In addition, you will capture more in the actual video.

Just remember: Do not keep your phone vertically while recording, as long as you do not really like or want to include those vertical black bars (or if you're purely recording for Instagram Stories ).


Now when you are recording in the proper orientation (see above), then fill the frame completely with your subject. You can put him or her somewhere in the center to make a more visually visible. Just play around and see what looks best.


There is nothing more gross than digital zoom - just ask any professional photographer. Most smartphones unfortunately provide digital zooms, which are software tricks only that will show your subject closely, but without the abundant amount of pixels.

Without zodiacing, you need to get close to your subject (or use an accessory, but later on more) to zoom in without recording crisp, in the vivid quality you desire in the video. In general, you should always be as close as possible, especially for tight shots on the face. Let us see those freckles and fine lines and cheek fuzzy.

Of course, it is not necessary that if you have a smartphone with more than one camera on the back. Often times, one of the additional lenses is the designated "telephoto" lens, which is designed to give you an optical zoom effect without losing it. In this example, tapping that "2x" button on your iPhone XS, for example, would be OK.


We all have seen videos where the topic is yellowish skin and red satanic eyes which are combined with super dark background. Criminal? Okay, yes, this is a photographer ... but it's a flash too.

Smartphones, you see, are equipped with LED lights which are very bright and can easily skew the color temperature of the photos. In addition, the video will often be poorly lit in the end. If you want to record a photo at night, you have to find another light source.

Get creative with available lights like Neon Sign or Juke Box. They can add some essential brightness while jazzing your video with color.


While thinking about flash and lighting in general, there are some other things you should keep in mind: backlit-avoid settings.

You may be able to see people and their faces when you backlit, but your smartphone camera can not usually display a dark picture with a bright image. There will also be no visible features in that shape, which means that you were trying to catch whatever you were missing.

To avoid this situation, try configuring a basic lighting setup. Those of you who are recording on the fly, can also improve backlit position by going to one side or another. Although some stock camera apps try to reduce the effects of backlighting, but you should try to reduce the effects of your end.


Time Lapse:

Time lapse or time-lapse photography is a cinematography technique by which the frequency at which the film frames are captured (frame rate) is much less compared to the sequence used. When you repeat this sequence with normal speed, time goes on fast and lapping is done in this way.

Simply put: Time lapse photography is time-manipulation. Things and events that usually take during hours, days, months, or years and can be seen at a very fast pace, from time to time, thanks to the photography techniques.

Before the Instagram team started hyperlaps, making a time-lapse video with its smartphone was tedious and honestly difficult. Since then, some manufacturers have just created the feature in the preinstalled camera app. For example, Apple iPhones have a time-lapse feature in the camera.

Still, in some phones it is not, and hyperlaps have been closed since then, but there are options. At the Play Store, Microsoft has its own hyperlap app that is simple to use and stabilize your footage, and another is called Framelapse Pro which has been highly rated.


GIFs are everywhere. Any day, you will see them imaginable on Twitter, Facebook, news sites, advertisements, and any other site.

They are like short stop-motion video clips, which you can send via email, social network or SMS messages. They are short to look and easy to share, but they are also easy to make. You just need a camera equipped with a camera and an app. Giphy lets you create GIFs as Google Photos, if you have a Galaxy Note device, you can also create your own using S-Pen.

There is also a guide in PocketLint which gives details of the best ways to create a GIF. You can start today, and maybe it will not cost you a little bit of time. See also the Boomerang app of Instagram. It explodes and then stitches them together in an HD video loop. The loop starts playing further, but then plays backwards, creates a GIF video like the audio does not include.

Instagram recommends that you are getting something that is moving forward, keep it still, and voila! From there, you can share it on Instagram. Boomerang automatically saves the video in the roll of your camera.

The idea is that - with a GIF - you have created an interesting short video clip that can easily go viral. Just check these GIF examples of cats and dogs riding on robot vacuum, all of which have become viral.



Snapchat was one of the first app to completely change the way the video was shot. With it, you can quickly send a video of yourself (or snap) to a friend at work, perhaps a rainbow-pudding is applied with an AR lens or a doodle is written on top, and then they open it. Can they screenshots if they want it? And reply back with your own video response.

You can make snap more fun by adding enhanced reality-based special effects and sounds with a feature called lens. Popular lenses include 'Rainbow Puke' and 'Dog with Gibb'. Like the lens, which are mainly applied to your face in real time, there are 3D World lenses that specifically affect the environment around you.

You can also see your Bitmoji avatar. For example, one running one shows our bitmodi incarnation sitting at the desk and mixing of drugs and chemicals. This animation is pervasive in the world around us and it can be shared with our friends through chat or follow-up through our story. Both the lenses and the world lens are often replaced by snapchat, although popular recurrence occurs. Finally, there are filters, which you can use to jazz your snap.

You can add color filters, current times, local weather, speed overlays, or geofilters to your videos. Now, when you are playing with any of these Snapchat features, you can always save your snap locally on your device and then share it with others via other social networks or SMS. But, if Snapchat is not your item, try Instagram.

Instagram also provides many filters and lenses for the video.


Let's be honest: smartphone cameras are not just like the powerhouse made by Canon or Nikon or Sony, because most smartphone cameras and their stock camera app lacks fine control and other things.

If you so want to take your smartphone video-recording skills to the next level, without buying DSLR at no cost, you may want to consider purchasing goods that reveal the real potential of your camera. You can get everything from tripod mounting system to creative lens add-ons.

A website named Photojojo sells a ton of different goods at different price points. You can mount bikes for your Android phone, for example, or telephoto lenses for your iPhone. The possibilities are endless (and addicted).



And finally, sometimes some editing is required so that your footage has to be "wow" from "meh". And nowadays you can also make some deeper edits on your smartphone, which means that you will not need to invest in fancy desktop software.

Everything is simple on iOS and Android mobile devices until you add transition, title and effect from original trimming. Whether your next video is a montage or school project, mobile applications can make video-editing process work.

For example, Apple's own iMovie for iPhone and iPad includes titles and transitions and even supports creating dramatic trailers while walking. Other features include Picture-In-Picture, Split Screen and Slow Motion Effect. It's similar to iMovie on Mac, in fact. For IPad Pro, you would want to give LumaFusion, though it is quite expensive.

Pinnacle Studio is another good example, as well as Videon and Magisto. But not all: Adobe's premiere Rush app for the iPhone and iPad is a powerful video editing tool that has many features of Premier Pro, though it has been snatched down and used by anyone.

It offers fast video editing like other mobile apps, where you can drag footage and photos according to your liking and trim them down and trim them, but it is also compatible with Premier Pro so that you can do the desktop Can export final results. Software sophisticated with more control.

How to Work Online from Home step by step Guide

 How to Work Online from Home step by step Guide

 How to work online from home step by step Guide

In the past, I have briefly touched the way to find work from home jobs, but have not been in step-by-step details for you. I have mentioned many good job search sites that you can use as well as some websites you can look for to get jobs for home-based work.

But, there is still more to know where to search. You will need to know how to find major job boards. Once you are on a job search site, you have to put in some smart search terms to narrow things up for home-based jobs. You can get super creative with it and even limit it to specific types of home-based jobs!

My two favorite free searchable job boards that I use weekly, are Adhuntr and Fact. Adhuntr searches for all Craigslist and really searches together several major job boards, which sincerely saves a lot of time for me because there are so many job boards.

How to find work from home jobs with search:

There are several keywords that you can type into the keywords field on both sites that will mainly bring home-based jobs. You should type all of these keywords inside the quote so that you can find the listing with that exact phrase instead of only the difference.

For example, if I work from home without quotes around the keyword box, sometimes I work with a listing in which words are work and home, but not necessarily together, then This means that this is not a work of the house. This is the reason that quotes are so important.

If you want to narrow down your search to work with something specific, such as Home Transcription Jobs or Home Writing Jobs, you can type "work from home", "transcription" simultaneously, in both quotes or "work from home" Are there. "Writing," and your results will populate with listings, which will include both phrases.

Also, pay attention to the date of the listing you received. When I'm on Adhuntr, I always ask to sort it by the most recent or last month, so I do not end up with the listing listed from time to time. In fact, you have to tell how many days before the list was posted and if the job has already ended, you can see it at the top of the list.

Search term to try:

Obviously, there is a great search term to use "work from home", but this is not the only one. Not every company uses that exact phrase to describe its home-based jobs! Here is a large list of many search terms that you should use to ensure that you get as much as possible from home jobs. And remember, write all these inside the quotation!

"Work From Home"
"work at home"
"Work From Away"
"remote location"
"Work From Anywhere"
"Location: Anywhere" (Good to use on Adhuntr because they have a specific location field)
"Location: Remote"
"Freelance" - (not all freelance jobs work from home, but there are many who are worth checking)
"Work From Home" + "Freelance"
"virtual Office"
"This is a remote situation"
"Working away from home"
"working from home"
"Working at Home"
"Work offsite"
"Offsite status"
"Work from home"
"Can be worked from home"
These conditions should stop for a good start. Obviously you can not have time to pass through each post (I know I am not). But just experiment with conditions and see which ones give you the best results and you will find that you have some favorites, the search terms to go.

Watch out for scams!:

In fact, it is possible to run a home scam on Adhuntr, and many other job boards. The intentions of the people behind two sites are definitely good, but they do not do everything. That's why it is always your responsibility to research your own and carefully examine the jobs before applying or sharing your personal information too much.

Craigslist is full of work in home jobs that are legitimate, but there are far more scams posted from elsewhere, so you have to be careful about dual caution.

Here is a post with a list of tricks to dodge scams on Craigslist, which I would recommend to read before searching a lot through Adhuntr.

Another great resource I use:

FlexJobs is a very high quality, reputable job search site focused on work from home and flexible jobs, and they guarantee that you will never find scams posted on their site. So if you are really crazy about scams, then you can consider signing up for membership on FlexJobs. I have used their site for more than a year now and can solve the quality of job quality and scams.

It's $ 14.95 a month, but you can set your account under settings so that it does not bills you for months if you want to get access for just one month, see if it's worth it to you. . You can use promo code NEWYEAR to gain 50 percent through 1/2/19.

I have a job from Home Scam Checklist to work with household scams, or you can browse through different types of things that I have written about specific scandals here to learn more about each type.

How to Sell Your Unique Music Online

How to Sell Your Unique Music Online

How to Sell Your Unique Music Online

Selling your music to a worldwide audience is now easier than ever. I was a musician since childhood, and working for education, travel and then a living person, in the way of my dream of becoming a guitar hero, I never left the hope. In fact, I have spent the last few years writing and recording a generous mix of songs. The next obvious step was to find a way to hear them, the advent of social media itself came in.

Where to sell your music online:

Despite the interference of Justin Timberlake, MySpace is a musical backwater these days, it is still a place that posts a song and updates for a music oriented audience. The soundcloud, though very strong and with a better understanding of the community. I started uploading instruments and songs several years ago in Soundcloud, but then chosse a paid account to get more comprehensive data, as well as a lot of unlimited space for audio files.

Followers on SoundCloud are usually companion musicians, and with all other social networks, you get the maximum of them that you put in - follow others, listen to their music and leave comments, and more people Will meet again The option to add a "buy" link to other services is also important, through which you can pay to download your listeners, viewers, fans, even a track or two.

The first potential beneficiary option that I came across was Reverb Nation. This is similar to SoundCloud - you can create a profile and start adding your music, you can set a price or make it free to download it. In addition, you can take all the benefits after commissioning of the site, or you can choose to share with your charity of choice. In my case, I give the Fender Music Foundation the ratio of every sale.

It may be just my experience, but compared to SoundCloud, the riverbank seems very quiet in the context of the community, and although I get a steady stream of profile scenes, few people listen there. In addition, ReverbNation often gives users messages with music promotion offers, which rely on payment for a "press pack" up-front.

The next site that appeared on my radar was BandCamp, which gives you the ability to upload your songs and artwork and to set a price. The big advantage is that your fans have the option to show their true devotion and pay more than the cost of asking, if they really like the track or album. I have had some success with marketing at BandCamp, however, I do not think I'm ready to leave the work for so far

Sell Your ​​Music on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play:

Of course, in the world of music downloads, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon MP3 and Spotify are the primary paid outlets and are the most famous among legitimate downloaders. You usually need proper music management and record labels to get your songs and music albums on these music sites, but there are other ways to be listed as well.

The likes of music distribution platforms like CDBaby and TuneCore charge an upfront fee and will act as a proxy for record labels to get your music on iTunes and other online music stores. Your music uploads will appear in stores all over the world. Like the Audi, these services also have a partnership with YouTube, and whenever a piece of music is used on YouTube videos, a portion of the advertising revenue is paid to you.

On the other hand, Distrokid takes almost a negligible annual fee, still does not cut profits and still allows you to upload as many songs as you want every year. It takes a few days to promote your tracks to iTunes, Google, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer and Rdio, but this is a very clever and simple process.

Besides, there is loudness. Which is similar to DistroKid to get your songs quickly and originally on iTunes, Amazon, et al, but with a significant difference - this allows you to upload and sell "cover" versions of other people's songs. Take care of license and royalty for the songwriter. The service does not charge an upfront fee, but does relatively big cuts in any profits from the download stores.

Music Distribution Services – Comparison is given:
ServiceUpfront CostSales CommissionSupported Music Stores
BandCampNone15% of the total salesNone
ReverbNation$19.95 per monthNoneiTunes, Spotify, Google Music, et al
CD Baby$12.95 per single9% of the revenue from music sites Amazon,  iTunes, Beats MusicShazam, Facebook, YouTube,Google Play, etc 
DistroKid$19.99 per yearNoneiTunes, Spotify, Beats, Rdio, Deezer, Google Play, Amazon MP3
Loudr.fmNone15% of the sales revenueiTunes, Pandora, Spotify and Google Play
TuneCore$9.99 per year per singleNoneiTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Spotify, and more.
Obviously, none of these music services will make you a guitar hero, if you do not have a musical chops and if you do so, you spend a lot of time investing in marketing and linking to see any substantial return. Will happen. When I was a young man, it was becoming viral that all the spots were getting and feeling sick, today, I would be very happy to be viral with Spotify and get a spot on the iTunes charts. rock on!
