How to Shoot & Edit Videos Like a Pro on Your iPhone

We know how important it is to create high-quality videos that stand out on Instagram and TikTok.

But with so many technical details to consider, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. That's why we've put together a quick guide with some expert tips for shooting and editing your videos like a pro.

So let's get started and make some stunning videos that will keep your followers engaged and excited for more!

Here are some of the top tips:

Start with the basics.

Wipe the lens with cotton or microfiber to ensure a clear and crisp image. It's a small step that can make a big difference in the quality of your videos.

Check your camera settings.

By setting your camera to 1080p HD at 60 fps (or 4k 60 if you have the space), you can capture high-quality footage that looks professional and polished. The higher the resolution and frame rate, the smoother and more detailed your footage will be.

Use the back-facing camera.

The back-facing camera on your iPhone has a higher resolution and better image processing capabilities than the front-facing camera, which makes it ideal for capturing high-quality footage. This is especially important if you're shooting in low-light conditions or trying to capture fine details.

Place natural light behind the camera.

Choosing bright natural light helps to bring out the colors in your video. If the lighting is too dim or the wrong color temperature, it can make your video look dull and unappealing. By positioning your subject in front of a source of bright natural light, you'll be able to capture vivid and vibrant colors that are sure to catch your audience's attention.

Export in the right format.

When editing in InShot or other editing apps, export in 1080p at 60fps to avoid compression on Instagram and TikTok. Compression can significantly impact the quality of your videos, making them appear pixelated and blurry.

Confirm video settings.

Set your video settings to "high quality uploads" in Instagram settings. This ensures that your video is uploaded with the best possible quality, without any compression or loss of detail. This is equally important for TikTok.

Add Finishing touches.

If desired, use the ultra 4k filter on Instagram. Using the ultra 4k filter is a great way to add a professional touch. This filter enhances the colors and sharpness of your footage, making your videos look even more visually stunning. To find the 4k filter, simply search for it when editing your video in Instagram reels. Just go to the magnifying glass icon and type in "4k HD 1080" and choose the blue filter.

With so many creators vying for attention, having visually appealing content is essential to capturing your audience's attention and keeping them engaged.

By following these expert tips, you'll be able to create high-quality and visually stunning videos for Instagram and TikTok. So go ahead and give them a try - your audience will thank you for it!
