Video from Home: How To Look (and Sound) Your Best On Camera
Sharing video from home is a great way to maintain your face-to-face communication with your audience – but not everyone is an expert at creating a high quality videos on their own! Luckily, our video production experts have outlined the 4 Key Elements to consider when setting up for your 'at home' video shoot.
1. Strive for Quiet
Choose the space in your home that is the farthest away from any outside noise, loud appliances, and other people in your home. Unless you’re using a professional microphone, even the slightest ambient noise can be cause a distraction for your audience.
2. Make it Bright
When it comes to smartphone cameras and webcams: light = information. The more information you can give the camera the better. If your room is too dark, the camera will try best to boost the brightness, but this creates a lot of digital noise and image distortion – it may not be noticeable at first glance, but it will definitely be an eyesore for your viewers.
3. Get Connected
Internet bandwidth is crucial regardless of what device you’re recording or streaming on. Ensure that you’re using either a wired ethernet connection, or have rock-solid wifi and/or 4G cell service.
4. Keep it Clean
Check your frame, or what the camera is seeing, and make sure that your space is tidy. Too many objects in view or a cluttered work space can be distracting to the viewer and aesthetically unpleasant. You want your audience to focus on your message, not your messes!
