Filming with a Phone

Updated: Jul 6, 2021

Congratulations! You’ve taken the next steps to becoming a virtual real estate agent. While we are not showing any listings or going out to take photos, there are still many ways you can market your properties. If you feel your client is able and willing to take video of their home, here are some tips you can share to get the best possible quality.


Always shoot in landscape

Depending on your intentions and the platform you are using, make sure your phone is tilted properly for your viewers. For Facebook Live, keep your camera horizontal as it will appear in your followers’ newsfeed. If you plan to shoot video for YouTube, LinkedIn or Twitter it is best to also film horizontally. However, when filming for Instagram live, remember that it will appear the same as an Instagram story to your followers which means film vertically.


Be conscious of bouncing

Nothing is more frustrating than watching shaky footage. If you can keep a steady hand (especially during this crisis) then maybe this is your second career. But for those who can’t, which is most of us, look into investing in a gimbal. The DJI OSMO Mobile 3 is a huge game changer. The 3-axis gimbal is sleek and portable, reduces shaky footage and is smartphone compatible. If you’ve seen it at any BHS event, you know what we are talking about. If you don’t plan on moving much, a simple aluminum lightweight iPhone tripod stand will get the job done.


Use light

While we encourage staying indoors, the couple hours after sunrise and the couple hours before sunset are best times to shoot. If you are indoors, film in front of a window for natural light. If you don’t feel comfortable with either option, this 8" selfie ring light with tripod stand will give you the cinematic light you need.


Don’t zoom

Avoid the temptation to use your built-in camera zoom. Since the lens isn’t zooming optically, you’re just enlarging the picture digitally, which means you will quickly enter the world of unsightly pixelation.


Slow-motion and time-lapse

You can get some amazing shots with built-in slow-mo, but make sure the choice to slow down the action is motivated. This can be great for listing videos but most likely won't have the same effect when you are speaking.


Other tips to keep in mind:

Hold at arms length

Turn on airplane mode before hitting record

Use exposure lock (Android, iPhone)

Good day, friends! I'm in need of some advice on finding a reliable online casino. There are countless websites out there, but I'm unsure which ones I can trust. If anyone has any recommendations for a reputable platform to explore, I'd greatly appreciate it! Also, I'm on the lookout for genuine reviews or ratings that can help me make an informed decision. Your assistance in guiding me through this process would be incredibly helpful!

I'm constantly discovering new possibilities of my phone, but after reading the information in this blog https://celltrackingapps.com/spy-on-girlfriends-text-messages-free/ I realized that using our phones requires utmost caution to avoid damaging our reputation and falling into the hands of scammers. It's important to be mindful of the data we share, the apps we download, and the websites we visit. With the amount of personal information stored on our phones, messages, we need to be vigilant and take measures to protect ourselves from cyber threats.
