Vlogging started out as simply documenting your day or sharing fun moments with friends on social media. Now, it’s evolved into a viable career path for aspiring content creators. You can see the range of content on platforms like YouTube and TikTok, where they talk about anything under the sun and sometimes even do interesting challenges.
With millions of content online, it can be hard to stand out. But the great thing about vlogging is there’s a lot of room to be creative and flexible with your content. This is what the Infinix Vlog Masters know all too well as they constantly think outside the box when capturing their own stories with the new Infinix ZERO 30 5G.
If you’re looking for inspiration for your next vlog, let Rhian Ramos, Kianna Dy, and Benedict Cua motivate you with these tips:
Authenticity is key
Vlogging allows you to share a slice of your life, especially the interesting parts of your day, to your followers. Rhian likes her content to be casual and “a little bit kengkoy” to show another side of herself outside of her showbiz persona. “The point of vlogging is to express yourself and connect to your audience,” she says.
For Benedict, he considers his content as an online journal, so he tries to “capture everything as they happen naturally.” He emphasized the importance of staying true to yourself and not trying to be someone you’re not. “Keep it authentic and maximize whatever resources you currently have for creativity. Be you!” he says.
Likewise, Kianna believes in being unfiltered when it comes to sharing what a day in her life looks like. She likes sharing her volleyball training and adulting era, among others, with her followers in hopes of someone finding her content relatable. “I think aspiring creators should be authentic at all times. Be real and show your personality as much as possible and I’m sure someone will find it inspiring, fun, or enriching,” she says.
“Your content doesn’t have to be linear or your shots don’t have to be clean, centered or with the perfect lighting conditions all the time,” Kianna says. Contrary to what you see online, vlogs don’t look polished and Instagram-worthy – you can thank good editing for that.
Kianna believes that providing a good mix of polished shots and mistakes can make vlogs more dynamic, and help you tell an interesting story. The imperfections can also make your content different from others.
Have a reliable phone to shoot on the go
You don’t need an expensive professional camera to shoot your vlogs. Oftentimes, your smartphone is enough to capture memorable moments, especially if they happen right in front of you. The Infinix ZERO 30 5G, also known as the ultimate vlogging phone, has an impressive 4K 60FPS Ultra Clear Front Vlog Camera that captures HD quality clips and photos wherever you go.
Rhian says she doesn’t leave home without the Infinix ZERO 30 5G these days. “It’s always on me. It has a 50 megapixel camera both on the front and back, capable of recording 4K videos at 60fps. Plus, it has a processor chip fast enough for all my editing needs.”
Benedict’s advice is to use this nifty vlogging phone while traveling because it’s lightweight and compact. “My favorite is using the Infinix ZERO 30 5G for my B-rolls as it highlights the entire trip. Truly leveling up my vlogs!”
Kianna echoes this sentiment, saying, “The Infinix ZERO 30 5G has been a game-changer for me because it is so compact and light, but delivers high-quality sound and video, especially for travel vlogs,” she says. “I don’t panic anymore if my settings are correct because it does it for me.”
Overall, showcasing your true self in vlogs will make it easier for you to conceptualize the content and flow of your longform vlogs and snackable video clips. You can level up your creativity with each vlog using the Infinix ZERO 30 5G (P14,999 for 12+256GB) with its pro-level camera features. Plus, with the 5G Powerful MediaTek Dimensity 8020 processor with up to 21GB Massive Extended RAM, you can also edit and upload your content without a hitch.
Aspiring content creators can also showcase their innovative filmmaking skills at Infinix’s Mobile Vlog Awards (MVA). There will be two categories to show off their content: Template Tales in partnership with CapCut and Vertical Freedom. The submission of entries will be via TikTok from October 5 to 30, while the announcement of winners will be on November 6.
MVA finalists will stand a chance to take home Infinix ZERO 30 phones, special prizes such as Air 1 Pro Earphones, Laptop Bags, and e-certificates. Check out how you can join and be part of the first Infinix MVA here.
