Shooting with a Smartphone
Assuming you are using some kind of a smartphone to record yourself, please swatch this video. It’s one of the best I’ve seen that will allow you to get a clean, nice-looking, and consistent video.
PLEASE SHOOT HORIZONTALLY!
If you don’t want to watch the video, you can use these guides:
Once your videos are shot, they must be offloaded to your computer. Do NOT email them from your phone. That will drastically reduce the quality. Once they are offloaded, use WeTransfer.com to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or upload them to Dropbox and send me a link. Do not share a Dropbox folder with me; send a link that allows me to access the folder.
Email me if you have any questions.
