Tips for creating a great video profile

  • A good video profile is one that is thought out, structured and efficient
  • Look relaxed, and as if you’re enjoying sharing your information
  • Confidence is obviously important
  • Preparation is key

Background

  • Avoid clutter in the background
  • A light colored background is better. If you put yourself in front of a dark background, your webcam will try to pick up as much light as possible, making your face look bright and featureless.

Lighting

  • Lighting is very important
  • A room that is well-lit can have a big positive impact on the quality of your videos
  • Don’t have any bright lights right above you or right behind you
  • Have a good amount of ambient light

Angling

  • Keep the laptop or device at eye level
  • Don’t position the camera too close

Eye contact

  • Look at the camera, not the screen
  • Eye contact is an opportunity for you to connect with your viewer

Audio

  • Headsets from your phone are usually better than most laptop microphones
  • Quiet spaces are best for audio quality
  • Big empty spaces create echoes
  • Make sure you are speaking in clear, full, sentences
  • Try and find the lower end of your vocal range

Make up

  • Powder can help toward smoothing out a complexion
  • Avoid heavy and dark makeup

Attire

  • It’s important to be conscious of what you’re wearing
  • It’s good to avoid bold patterns
  • Bright clothes will help reduce shadows on your face
  • Try solid colors, and avoid distracting patterns
