It's very likely that during isolation, you have had to resort to video meetings, whether to talk to a client, host a live webinar, or to attend the weekly family meetup. So, how can you improve your video presence and quality of the recording?
Technology is a beautiful thing. We can meet and work with people from all over the world so long as we have a decent internet connection and a device that has a video option. As I'm writing this right now, my partner is currently in a video meeting himself with four other team members and has a few more meetings left to attend today. I believe this is how a typical work day looks for many remote workers right now. But, there are other ways in which we are utilizing videos more ourselves — for socializing, for creating live content that we share with our followers on social media, for creating pre-recorded webinars, for meeting new clients, and more.
To up your game in the video department, photographer and videographer Tony Richards offers advice and tips on improving your video lighting, composition, audio, and offers advice on the equipment. It's all too easy to start your recording when you're feeling inspired or confident without considering what the framing actually looks like, but it's definitely worth following Richards' tips to make you and your video look more professional and presentable. This means not forgetting to stay seated if you're only wearing a fancy shirt on the top and relaxing loungewear on the bottom!
Video is a resource you can start using now without even leaving your home, to improve your business, attract or catch up with your clients, or create resources or courses that will bring you passive income, so it's certainly something to consider adding to your repertoire if you haven't already.
