    Hiiii 😊..thank you so much for your amazing tutorial. It was really helpful ❤. I do have a question though. When you showcase the products you use in the video, isn't it like free advertising? What are the chances that a brand would want to partner with you when you're already advertising their products for free?

    Does the position we put the phone matter?

    I loved these tips. I use my phone to shoot my YT videos, I loved using my back camera to shoot until I ran out of space and only noticed after I finished, what's worse it was a wash day & I mean I can't now rewash my hair, it was so demotivating. so now I do those with my front camera and the XR front camera quality is not too bad. I'll use your tip of using a mirror as a viewfinder from now on
