Robb Montgomery’s 10 Tips to Make Video with an iPhone

header-robbIf you’re looking to move your staff (or yourself) into capturing more video with your iPhone or other mobile device but not sure how to start, here are some great tips from journalist Robb Montgomery on his site. It’s a list of 10 things, nine of which can be mastered and used quickly. Actually, from a teaching standpoint, I would take the first nine and roll out one new tip nine straight days. I would give the tip, talk about it briefly and then have the students practice the tip. That way, they wouldn’t be overwhelmed with trying to remember too many tips at once and they could get a chance to practice the tip on the spot. It would be an easy way to start class for 10 minutes each day for two weeks.
