FILMING YOURSELF, IT’S NOT JUST FOR INFLUENCERS

With video content and video calls on the rise, you’ve likely starred in a webinar or video call. Here are our tips for a quality video selfie:

  1. Lighting:  Have the main light source of the room in front of you, so your face is better lit than your background.  If your in-room lighting doesn’t cut it, try a Clip-On Lumo Light – just clip it to your desk and position it behind your webcam. 
  2. Stack it up:  To avoid the double chin look, place books under your laptop or webcam device so the camera is in line with your eyes, rather than angling up. 
  3. Mic check:  Check your audio, and if it’s muffled or echoing, try a wireless Bluetooth mic like the Smartmike+.
  4. Eye contact:  If using notes to present, print or write notes and display them behind your webcam so you’re not looking down or to the side of the camera. 
  5. Pre-testing:  Check your placement, appearance, surroundings and virtual background BEFORE connecting.  Most apps allow you to view your display before entering the meeting, or you can set up a separate meeting for just yourself before connecting to check everything is professional.
