TIPS & TRICKS
Why should you hold your phone sideways when you gather video? It might feel weird but there is a purpose behind it. Our phones use the aspect ratio 16x9, which is the typical ratio that wide screen monitors and televisions are made for. And it’s the default video resolution of normal video. If you’re combining videos together for a project it will match the videos that you might shoot on a typical camcorder or DSLR device. When you film something on your phone in vertical mode you get a square image and it will look weird. So the next time that you shoot video, just turn the phone sideways and the image and the moment in time will be the better for it.
