If part of your role includes contributing images, text, or video to your organisation, your phone has likely become a key part of your workflow.
And if you're finding yourself filming with your smartphone more and more often, or if you think your storytelling process might be rapidly heading into this direction, you will find the following tips form BBC video journalist Dougal Shaw very helpful.
Shaw has been filming exclusively on his iPhone for two years, and his video covers managing battery power and storage, as well as advice for using your smartphone for additional angles, close-ups and more authentic interviews to complement shots from a traditional camera.
