3 Travel Vlogging Tips From Mikael Daez

This actor and digital content creator has some great practical tips we can all learn from

Many enjoy watching Mikael Daez’s travel vlogs. He does a great job narrating his experiences and giving his viewers a feel of where he’s at by providing them with a background of each destination and spending some time with its locals. The simplicity of his videos makes them authentic and beautiful, so much so you wouldn’t want to skip any part of it, no matter its length.


Looking to come up with interesting travel videos like Mikael? Below are some tips he shared with Metro.Style at the launch of the OPPO Reno2 series in the Philippines!

The OPPO Reno2 series, dubbed as the New Generation Phoneography Powerhouse, is built to be the next generation creative tool for aspiring content creators. It has 48MP Quad Camera setup that is capable of up to 20x Digital Zoom. It features Ultra Steady Video, Ultra Dark Mode, Ultra Wide Angle on video and Bokeh Effect on video which is the first of its kind in the industry, and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage that promises smoother user experience.


1. Experiment with your videos. It’s always a good idea to highlight the hidden gems of a place and the things you can do when you’re there. “Be adventurous so you can keep it exciting,” says the actor.


2. The best camera you have is the one in your pocket. “Filming a subject from your perspective is very important and it’s much easier to do that with your phone,” he continues. “Sometimes, I don’t even bring my camera so if it’s a nice shot, I just whip out my phone and it will match.”


3. Just start vlogging. Some may be afraid to do it, some may be hesitant, but Mikael says it all starts from actually doing it. “You have to get over yourself and just do it,” quips Mikael.
