We usually discover a piece of ourselves in the things that we find interesting. If you really want to get to know a person better, just look at their favorite hobbies.
In today’s social media savvy world, we now have a digital journal where we can share bits and pieces of our hobbies with others. A lot of times we come up with creative ways to show off our love for something – it can be a sport, a musician you’re a diehard fan of, or a collectible.
It’s also easier to find like-minded people through the content we consume and put out there. This can open up more doors to further explore our interests. If you’re looking for ways to spruce up your hobby content, creators Verniece Enciso, Daniel Miranda, Ariana Evangelista, and Mikki Tenazas have some helpful tips.
Keep it fun and relatable

Social media is a convenient way to connect with people with the same hobbies as you. So, it’s important to not make your content too serious or complicated.
Ariana is a sporty gal who loves playing pingpong and going on adventures on her motorcycle, and she’s not shy about sharing these hobbies on her social media. She says it makes her happy to see people who love the same activities be so supportive of her. “I keep the mood of my posts as light and as fun as possible,” Ariana says about keeping her followers engaged.
Daniel is also into motorcycles and plays golf. He considers social media as a great way to connect and share his interests with his followers, so he always tries to make his content relatable. “I give them genuine feedback on my experiences when it comes to my hobbies,” he says.
Create to inspire
Many people sometimes hesitate to start on a new hobby, even if they’re interested in them. It could be due to lack of time or resources to get into it. For creators like Verniece, who’s known for her gorgeous lifestyle content, it’s all about inspiring her followers to pursue their dreams.

“My favorite hobbies are photography, cooking, and ice skating. Social media has helped me know myself more and became an outlet for me. It helped me connect with my audience as well, where I inspire them to work hard and never give up on their dreams by sharing what I do and being myself,” she says.
On the other hand, Mikki also finds inspiration from other creators when he’s shooting content while traveling or trying out a new restaurant. “I’ve always incorporated my travels and adventures into my social media content, and capturing these experiences has helped me level up my skills in photography and videography, while constantly learning how to create engaging content with whatever device I’m traveling with.”
“I always get inspiration from their works, and this pushes me to be more competitive and think of my own unique style and brand,” he says.
Be ready to shoot
You don’t need fancy equipment to shoot photos and videos of your hobbies. You can use a smartphone like the Infinix ZERO 30 5G, which has a 4K Ultra Clear Front Vlog Camera that emphasizes every detail with full clarity. It also has a dual-view camera feature that captures simultaneous selfie and rear shots.

“It’s perfect for capturing my daily activities, whether it’s the delicious food I eat in a new restaurant or a beautiful view in a new destination I’m visiting. The Dual Video feature is also perfect for capturing my own emotions and those of the people I’m sharing the experience with, or the breathtaking vistas I’m enjoying,” Mikki says.
Aside from shooting content, Infinix ZERO 30 5G is also able to handle editing processes thanks to its 5G Powerful MediaTek Dimensity 8020 processor with up to 21GB Massive Extended RAM. Daniel and Ariana express that it’s a great device to create high-quality content. “It’s so convenient knowing I won’t have to bring an editor or videographer because I can easily create content anywhere,” Daniel says.

You can also take your hobby content to the next level with Infinix’s Mobile Vlog Awards (MVA). Aspiring content creators can show off their mobile filmmaking skills in two categories: Template Tales in partnership with CapCut and Vertical Freedom. They can talk about anything, from their personal interests to big experiences. The submission of entries will be via TikTok until October 30.

Both categories will have three winners each that will take home Infinix ZERO 30 5G phones: Director’s Pick, Online Spotlight Awardee, and Infinix Choice Awardee.
