My next mission as a Mommy Blogger is to take over YouTube. I kid you not: I recently lay awake one night trying to figure out how I could position my iPhone 6+ to film myself. I speculated about a chair with a stack of books on it, or making my husband film me after Cub was asleep. But then I thought about it: I just needed a tripod! A tripod that I can use with my phone!
So I started Googling. There are some tripod-like contraptions for SmartPhones, but none of them were designed to fit with my generously-dimensioned iPhone 6+. And then I found it, my Mommy Blogger turned Mommy Vlogger’s Holy Grail:
The ShoulderPod Smartphone Rig!
And serves as a grip for steady filming and photography (of cats):
And a stand for watching Netflix while you cook, or for FaceTime with the Grandparents:
So now, with the “Selfie Timer” on my phone, I can take portraits. And if I get a remote, I can start and stop video recording from a distance. (For now, I hit record and stop myself, then edit that part out.)
I’m totally in love with my ShoulderPod SmartPhone Rig… a must for all you Vloggers in training, or even those wanting to up your game with your SmartPhone photos!
Do you use your SmartPhone for videos and photos?
