This is my first attempt at recording video with an iPhone. I learned a few things:
1.Do not flip from a vertical to horizontal aspect while filming. Thank goodness for Tyler Bush and his video experience (and software).
2. Make sure your finger, thumb, hand or foot is not covering the lens.
3. Don't forget as the videographer your voice ends up on the video, too.
4. Make sure to keep the camera aimed on people. An empty parking lot and trees are not avant garde, they're just boring.
5. If you walk and continuously pan the camera back and forth, you get a very amateur Blair Witch Project result.
