Cinematic iPhone Camera Tutorials

Capturing cinematic imagery with an iPhone requires more than simply pointing and tapping record. There are a host of technical and creative factors that make a video look cinematic, instead of a jittery, over sharpened, over saturated phone video.

If you want to learn how to take control of these technical and creative factors, and become an author of your images, you’ve come to the right place.

Here you will find my articles and tutorials related to capturing iPhone video that is good enough to take into post production for further color and finishing work.

These posts are all about using the best professional iPhone camera apps,  gear and accessories to capture professional quality video.
