Hello readers, probably you are interested in the more technical part of this industry and this is why you are reading this, consider this my way of thanking you for doing so. Today I am going to keep it simple and short but the effects of my advice will be long term and can add a significant additional revenue to your already existing webcam stream. I will share with you some simple tips:
- GET THE RIGHT LIGHTS.
The worse kind of lightning you can have is overhead lightning, it makes your eyes look bad and the shadow will give a false perspective. The best lights you can use are Natural lights, or better known as Soft Light sources. The best setup is 3 lights: 2 behind your webcam one on its left and one on its right and one right behind you.
- WATCH YOUR ANGLE.
Are you using a webcam clipped on top of your monitor? Chances are that it is not capturing you from the perfect perspective. If the angle is down too much you will give your visitors the impression that they over you. The best situation is to have the lens right at eye level. Tripods can help you with this.
- LOOK PRESENTABLE
Even if only your face and shoulders are in the frame, you'll never know when someone will make you stand up for any reason. So look decent from head to toe. Put some flattering, solid colors near your face, just like television news anchors do. Check your smile in front of the lens, and have the room maintain a perfect temperature which will significantly improve the comfort of your show for yourself.
- LOOK BEHIND YOU
The people you are talking and chatting with will be seeing the background of your room. There are a few things that make people's skin crawl, like dirty laundry on the bed! Junk and clutter is already bad enough but be more critical of your background. If you really want to do this perfectly, try seamless paper, it gives you a smooth clean background!
- MINIMIZE DISTRACTIONS
We do not expect you to put a sign on your door that says "On Air " but when you are working from home the sounds will distract the visitors. If you have kids, you need to hire a babysitter, and if you have animals then make sure the dog is not barking and the cat will not walk on your keyboard.
- BE PREPARED
Whether video calling/webcam chatting, both have one thing in common: the person you interact with is watching you without interruptions. Make sure you know what faces you make when people say certain things. A facial expression can be misunderstood and this demands a little more self control on your side. Know your body language and act on this. Your face is the tone that makes the music in the live cam industry.
