How to Capture the Best Instagram Stories with #JOBYAmbassadors Cailin O’Neil

By | Gorillapod, JOBY Ambassadors, Snapchat, Travel, Vlog, YouTube | No Comments

#JOBYAmbassadors Cailin O’Neil shares with you her top four tips on getting the best Instagram Stories and snaps for Snapchat, with the help of her GorillaPod.

As a global travel blogger for the past eight and a half years, my GorillaPod has always been an essential travel tool. I’ve used it to hold my cameras, iPhones and now, with the new Action tripod, my GoPro. With my GorillaPod, I’ve captured some pretty awesome pictures, videos and, of course, LOTS of Snapchats and Instagram Stories. I wanted to share some of my best tips with you. Here they are:

  1. Bring It With You Everywhere

This might seem like a silly tip, but no matter where you go, always have your GorillaPod with you. They are light and don’t take up much space. Due to its diverse shape-shifting abilities, I can even attach it to a small purse to bring with me on the go.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve left it in my hotel room only to find the perfect use for it later on when I didn’t have it. So, ALWAYS bring it with you. It is also ideal to bring into places that don’t allow tripods, such as museums and churches because it doesn’t look like your traditional tripod.

  1. Think Outside The Box

Anyone can record and publish Snapchat and Instagram Stories, but they may not automatically be great at it. Having a GorillaPod can help personalize Snapchat and Instagram Stories and help you stand out from the crowd with more unique content.   One advantage is being able to move beyond the “talking head” shot to capture interesting angles thanks to the GorillaPod’s flexible body. Additionally, the GorillaPod allows users to go hands-free, capturing more authentic emotion and personality with a JOBY Impulse. The hands-free capability also provides for a steady, smooth shot.

  1. Capture Time-lapse Videos

For all the reasons a GorillaPod is perfect for still shots and regular videos, it also allows you to capture the passage of time. You can either use the time-lapse option on your phone, use the fast-forward option on Snapchat or use my favorite app, Hyperlapse .

With Hyperlapse you can capture time-lapse walking shots by moving the phone, for example, as you walk through a busy market.  Not only does Hyperlapse have great built-in stabilization but holding onto your GorillaPod instead of directly holding onto your phone with your elbows up and away from your body increases stabilization for smooth-moving time-lapses.

  1. Use It For Close-ups

Admittedly, I am one of those people that likes to photograph / Snapchat / Instagram my food if it looks extra tasty. I don’t, however, want to be that person standing on a chair over a table with their camera making a scene in a restaurant. With my GorillaPod, I can capture close-up shots and videos of my food without facing social scrutiny. Whether it is a time-lapse shot of nachos being devoured or other hands-free close-up shots, you might be surprised at what you can achieve with a GorillaPod.

No matter how you decide to use your GorillaPod for filming, your social video game will definitely benefit from it. Do you have any other tips that I forgot to mention? Leave a comment below!

Three Tips To Make You A Better Vlogger With Valentina Dang

By | Gorillapod, JOBY Ambassadors, Travel, Tutorial, Vlog, YouTube | No Comments

JOBY Ambassador, Valentina Dang shares three helpful vlog tips on how to use GorillaPods to make your videos more watchable.

#1 Stabilization

No one wants to continue watching a shaky video. The GorillaPod acts like a buffer to dampen your arm movements for a smoother video.

#2 Use Your Environment

Give some context to where you are vlogging from. You’re telling a story and you need a setting. Make sure the viewers can see where you are and not just an up close selfie.

#3 Perspective

Having multiple angles in your video will help make it more entertaining. Using multiple GorillaPods setup around your shot location will go a long way to creating a better overall final video.
