Vlogging is just one of the hottest trends around. People are making vlogs everywhere they go. Some use vlogging cameras while others who can’t afford a camera, want to make vlog with their phones.
Well, to all of your surprise, making vlogs on a smartphone is possible. I mean with the right equipment in your hand, you surely can ace in making a vlog with the phone.
This guide is all about how you can make a perfect vlog with your phone. So, follow it and read it thoroughly in order to have a better idea and knowledge about making vlogs with smartphones.
Let’s start the topic without any further ado:
First of all, you will need some necessary equipment if you want to make beautiful vlogs with your phone. Complete the below-mentioned equipment first if you want to make a good audience from your vlogs.
The list is as follows:
A smartphone is necessary because you are going to make a vlog with it. Well, I will recommend you to get a smartphone with at least 10MP back camera.
Smartphones with a better camera will surely give you good results, be it a proper vlog or just a simple vlog. So, make sure that you are well equipped with a better smartphone before you start thinking of making a vlog with it.
A Vlogging Tripod:
The next thing which is very necessary is getting a vlogging tripod. Keep in mind that you can’t just hold your mobile continuously for more than 5 minutes especially if you are recording a video for your upcoming vlog.
There are different tripods available in the market meant only for smartphones. You can get your hands on a low-budget tripod which is at least able to hold your smartphone for a long period of time.
So, make sure that you have got a vlogging tripod before you start making a vlog.
An External Microphone:
This is extremely necessary for people who want to make vlogs with their iPhones. iPhones are known for their worse built-in audio quality. They won’t record anything better when it comes to vlogging outside the home.
No matter if you have an Android or an iOS smartphone, just make sure that you already have an external microphone in order to make a better vlog with high-quality video and audio at the same time.

How to Make a Vlog with a Smartphone:
What Kind of Vlog You Want to Make:
There are different vlog types available. Now it depends upon you that what kind of vlog you want to make. Is it just a product review vlog? Do you want to make selfie vlog? Are you interested in making travel vlogs?
Ask these questions from yourself and you will be able to get on one point. Making this decision is not as easy as you think because your whole vlog is based on the type you have already in your mind.
So, focus on it before you start making a vlog with a smartphone.
Writing the Story line:
If you follow professional vloggers, then you must know that each of their vlogs has got a proper pattern and a story line. That’s how they keep their audience engaged no matter how long their vlogs are.
So, the next step that I would want you to follow is to write a story line of the vlog you are about to make. Noting down the important points will help you a lot in making the main theme of your vlog clear.
Brainstorming is necessary for writing a story line and you should follow this pattern before you start shooting your first ever vlog with a smartphone.
Making Video Footage:
Right after clearing your doubts on the type of vlog you want to make and writing a story line for it, the next step is to start making video footage of your vlog.
For instance, if you want to make a travel vlog, make sure that there are beautiful sceneries included in your video clips.
Don’t get worried about the extra clips as you can trim them out later. Make your perspective in the video clear and add some spice in it so that your audience will be compelled to watch your vlog.

Editing the Video Clips:
The next step will be to merge all the video clips that you have made with your smartphone. I recommend an app for editing purposes commonly known as GoPro Quik Video Editor.
You should download this app to merge all the video clips you have. Trim the extra scenes or the instances where you think that the audience will get bored.
You can also add background music which the app will provide you free of cost. Different titles and animations can also be added with the help of this app.
Just do the basic editing and you are good to go.
Uploading the Video on YouTube:
Finally, the last step will be to upload your final video on your YouTube channel. It is okay to upload it if you already have a vlogging channel. However, you will need to create your channel if you are just starting from scratch.
