Tips for Improving Mobile Streams

1. Choose The Right Lighting

You can make or break your video content with the lighting. The sun is the perfect lighting option, and it’s free! If you position your phone with the sun facing you, you will get an amazing lighting effect. Just be sure not to sit with your back to the light, or else you will be covered in shadows.

2. Set Up Your Best Shot and Angles

Once you’ve got your lighting right, you’ll need to determine your best shots and angles. You can use certain angels to convey a certain message or tone in your video.

Keep an arm’s length from the camera for a better perspective.

Your phone will take on a better perspective if you add some space between you and it. Keep an arm’s length from the camera. It’s better to be farther away than too close.

Maintain eye level for a balanced view.

Avoid angles that are too high or low for a balanced view.

Make your background more creative by including props and accessories.

Use your background to show who you are. You can enhance your setup with posters, prints, blankets, plants, and bookcases. Make sure not to let it distract your audience and take their attention away from what you want to say.

3. Stream Flawless Audio

If you want to amplify your voice when streaming, you have several options. A good option would be to use AirPods or other cordless Bluetooth earbuds that offer just enough volume during fitness classes or interviews without needing an external mic. Try to stream from a quiet location without much background noise, and stay as close to the device as possible to ensure that your voice is heard clearly.

4. Use a Secure Internet Connection

In order to live stream from your phone without any issues, your internet connection needs to be both fast and secure.
