SamsungPH gives the following top tips to Generation Z on maximizing your smartphone’s power-packed features for social media.
1. Have a niche.
Choose a topic that will be the central theme of all your livestream and broadcasts. This way, followers will know what to expect and those interested in the topic can become new
fans. There are hundreds of subjects to select from, such as food, beauty, or travel, but
stick to it.
2. Compose the shot.
Before starting the live video, frame it and study what will be
included. Consider the background as it can add an interesting layer to the content. It
can be as simple as a bedroom but those looking to add something extra can shoot in a
garden, a coffee shop, or an intriguing piece of urban art.
3. Make the most of natural light.
Lighting is key to a great live video and natural is the
best way to go. Shoot outdoors or next to a window to take the best possible video.
Photographers also recommend the golden hour, or the time after sunrise or before
sunset when the light is soft. Cloudy skies are also helpful since it
diffuses sunlight to make livestreams look less harsh.
4. Add depth to keep it interesting.
Depth is about setting the scene. A good idea is to
add layers by using other objects in the background or the foreground. This can be
visually pleasing, especially if the elements complement each other. This is perfect for
those doing product reviews.
5. Create an outline.
While it’s tempting to just stream without any solid plan, it’s best to
come up with a blueprint of what to talk about to avoid rambling. It doesn’t have to be a
script, but a list of talking points can help the broadcast sound coherent yet natural.
6. Test sound and video quality.
Before going live with followers, it’s a good idea to
check the quality of the broadcast to ensure that viewers will be able to watch and listen
clearly. Avoid crowded places so it doesn’t distract the video.
7. Be yourself.
Livestreaming may be a performative act but viewers will gravitate towards
those who keep it simple and genuine. Crack a few jokes or interact with them to make it
feel like a conversation.
The Galaxy A50’s 25MP Low Light Camera allows for the perfect photo even in dim settings.
Outdoor shots can be shown without any obstructions with the 8MP Ultra-Wide lens. Lastly,
professional-looking bokeh portraits can be achieved with the 5MP Live Focus camera, which
can manually adjust background blur. Each snap is ready for Instagram with the Galaxy A50’s
Scene Optimizer feature. Selfies become more exciting with the phone’s expressive AR emojis.
Videos can be elevated with its Slow-mo and Hyperlapse features. Vloggers can also shoot
with the smartphone’s 123° Ultra-Wide Video lens.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy A30 is powered by a dual-camera that offers a 16MP Main Camera, a
5MP Live Focus Camera, and an Ultra Wide-angle lens to upgrade one’s mobile photography
