HOW TO LOOK YOUR BEST
• Use a soft light source placed in front of you
•Avoid backlighting. Windows/lights behind you can make it hard to see your face.
• Center yourself in the frame
• Keep your eye level parallel with the camera
•Frame the shot close with just a little headroom
• If you are using a laptop, make sure it is placed on a solid surface
• If you experience issues with video connection, try rebooting your computer
HOW TO SOUND YOUR BEST
• Use a small, preferably carpeted room. Large rooms and rooms with tile or hardwood floors can produce an echo.
•Turn off loud AC units or desk fans
• Stay close to the mic, but don’t lean in to it
•Talk toward the mic
•Test your mic before your meeting
