On today's episode of Digital Champions, I'm gonna talk about some common mistakes that people make when filming a video on their phones.
1. Look Into The Lens
The first thing, and I see it all the time, all the time, it's absolutely insane. When you're filming a video, on your phone, don't look at the screen. Look at the lens!
