    Follow these simple steps to shoot a professional-looking slo-mo video.

    • Nowadays, most phones have the option of recording a slo-mo video inbuilt. Simply go to the settings of your Android or iOS phones and select the slow-motion option to record a video. Now, you can simply record your video. However, remember that slo-mo videos look best when they are recorded in short bursts, with each shot of a maximum duration of 10 seconds.
    • Now, go to your gallery to play it back. You can use the options given to you to choose how much of the video you want to be slowed down by dragging the handles on either side to enclose just the area that needs to be slowed.
    • It is also really important that you take extra care to hold your phone steady while recording a video. This helps to make sure that the video is clear. Even slight movement can cause blurriness in the videos, and this flaw becomes even more prominent when the video is slowed down.
