We’ve all been on video enough this year to understand how challenging it can be to look our best behind the camera. And suddenly, the pressure’s on to be camera-ready under, in many cases, less-than-ideal circumstances.
In our last video blog, we talked about the equipment we’ve found to be most helpful when recording video remotely and without professional help. Now, we’re back with a third installment to offer tips for getting yourself camera-ready.
Advice for preparing to be on video include:
- Avoid a blank white wall behind you and spice up your background with wall art, furniture, or decorations. Give yourself some room between your camera and background to create depth.
- Dress as if you were meeting or presenting in person, even if it’s only from the waist up.
- STOP FIDGETING! Focus on who you’re speaking to and what you’re talking about, rather than being distracted by hair, jewelry, etc.
