The man who experienced in the world of journalism explained that there are three things that must be considered to produce a good mobile journalism. First, pay attention to autofocus. Before recording a video, make sure to lock the focus of the object to be recorded. "Basic tips in producing good work that people often miss. All smartphone default cameras are autofocus, well... during recording, the camera will continue to work, looking for the focus point. So, if we want to record the video, we must lock the focus. It's a simple thing that people often miss," he explained.
Next, make sure the lighting levels do not change during shooting. Finally, be brave and willing to try various applications, both camera and video editing applications. "So, from smartphone, we can produce professional-level videos, not coincidental videos that become viral in no time," he explained.
Ismail Fahmi reminded to identify ourselves or the institution that the video will be made. The man who works as a diplomat rate that self-recognition is very useful to produce creative and characteristic videos. "Creative and innovative. When creating content, it must be different from previous content, the flow is different. So just start," concluded the former TV journalist.
