Camera positioning

When filming for TikTok, it is crucial to film with your phone vertical instead of horizontal. If you film horizontal, it will not fit correctly and that will make your videos look less professional. It is also very important to be aware of where everything is positioned in the frame. Inside of the TikTok app, there is a row of buttons on the right side of the screen (like, comment, share, etc.), and then a row of text at the bottom (username, video description, etc.). You want to be careful that nothing important gets covered up by those buttons. By positioning your face towards the top of the screen, like in the image below, you can avoid that overlap.
