On a mission to produce your own video? Some days you might love it, other days hate it. I get it. But learning a handful of DIY video tips will help you get comfortable shooting and being in front of the camera.
Here are 4 Easy DIY Video Tips for Zoom or Loom
- Be mindful where you position your camera. It’s best that your camera lens is at eye-height or a bit higher. Sometimes, you might have to prop up your laptop because it’s a more flattering angle. If that’s the case, do it! You want to look your best.
- Depending on your background and the room where you’re recording, if you see the crease where the ceiling meets the wall, your angle is too low. Make sure to look on the screen and adjust accordingly.
- Lighting is next. Your main light source should behind the camera, not in front of it. front. If you’re setting up a video call on Zoom or Loom, make sure you’re facing the window so you get the best light. Sometimes there’s no natural light. In that case, put a lamp behind your webcam so your face is lit.
- Sound is always important and you don’t want to sound muffled or like a car is passing by – even if it is. Use a microphone whenever you can. I love my snowball but I don’t use it all the time.
