It’s finally all hitting me how closely my passions are intertwined. I absolutely love telling stories. Whether I’m reading one from a storybook, writing one for work, or telling my own. I’ve been learning how to tell stories through video since high school. After having done it for more than a decade, I’ve forgotten that it’s not something everyone knows how to do.

Granted, you can learn almost anything by searching online or watching YouTube videos, but maybe you don’t know where to start. I’m going to start sharing some home video tips (and editing and photography tips) I’ve learned along the way, some more recent than others, like this tip I’m presenting today… Why not to hold your phone vertical when you’re recording video. I made this mistake a lot in the beginning when I first got a smartphone. If you only record and watch your videos on your phone, it may seem like the way to do it, but once you try to upload it to share, or edit it into a video, you’ll realize that you can’t turn it after it’s filmed that way (not without cropping at least).

For a video explanation check out my video:

Let me know if you have any specific questions you want me to address next, otherwise I’ll just keep winging tips as I think of them. And if you aren’t already taking video of some of your special day to day moments, START. Every video I have to look back on brings a smile to my face, whether I edited into something or not.
