Apart from being a device for communication, an Apple iPhone does shoot pictures and videos. However, the quality of those photos and videos are oftentimes not very impressive. That's not due to the deficiency of the smart device, but a lack of the right shooting techniques. Here are some easy tips by which you can shoot professional quality videos that you can be proud to share on your social media accounts.

Make Sure Your iPhone's Video Resolution Is High

Even if you do all the right tricks, you still can't have great videos if the resolution of your iPhone is not very high. If you can afford it, buy an iPhone 6s with 4K capability. But if you can't, choose one that could at least give you a 1080P video resolution.

Be Sure That You Have Ample Storage Space

Smartphone devices like the iPhone can't squeeze in hundreds and even thousands of GBs in their small disk spaces just like the bigger tabletop models. So, be aware of the limitation of your iPhone's storage space before shooting professional quality videos. One minute of 4K video will gobble up 375 MB. That is more than twice the storage space taken up by a 1080P video. The storage space of the iPhone base model is only 16 GB. So, do your math before shooting.

Get A Professional Camera App

If you really want to shoot professional-quality videos with your iPhone, don't settle with its built-in camera app. That's only for the weekend videographer. Get a video camera app. You need to download this from a retailer. Of course, you have to shell out some cash. But you are aiming to shoot videos of professional quality right?

This app will provide you a lot of benefits, apart from great videos. Features like monitoring the sound level, separating the exposure and focus of your shots, and much more, are things that will enable you to shoot professional quality videos.

Consider the Existing Lighting Conditions

If you want to shoot professional quality videos, you must not ignore the existing lighting conditions of the moment. You can fine-tune your exposure by tapping on the area on the display screen that you want to focus on. And then when the yellow focus/exposure square appears, move the brightness up or down depending on how your subject becomes clearer.
