Telling stories and sharing memories and information is totally different nowadays when compared to the past decades since the person can distribute his story to the world in real time through video blogging.

Many youth that are into YouTube are Vlogging travel and plenty of lifestyle stories, yet not many have good video qualities. Saudi Gazette is providing its readers with four tips that could help produce more attractive videos.


If you have a great content, as a cameraman you can record the story with a mobile. However, it is suggested to use one of those cameras to have a high quality Vlog, Sony DSC W830 Cyber-shot, or Canon Powershot SX620 HS.


Planning the video shots in the pre-production stage is vital. Many videos on YouTube are annoying and do not present a clear story because either there are missing shots or the video suffers from jump cuts, which is an abrupt transition from one scene to another.

To avoid it, the cameraman should have video recorded some cutaway shots, which is the interruption of a continuously filmed action by inserting a view of something else


Several YouTubers upload shaky videos that annoy the audience. To avoid shakiness during the production stage, utilize a tripod. One of the suggested tripods is Sturdy Desktop Tripod. The cameraman can also use other kind of stabilizers such as, the chest/shoulder pod.

If you discovered the shakiness during the post-production stage you can pick the stabilization option in the editing program. However, this step is not always successful to make the image stable.


If the Vlogger is video recording himself or interviewing another person, he should apply the Rule of Third in the interview. The basic principle is to divide your image into thirds horizontally and vertically. These lines and their intersections act as guidelines for where to position important compositional elements in your frame.

Position the center of your subject's body on the left third if they are looking across the frame from left to right. Position their eyes on the top third. He also should check the background.
