/ video conferencing consulting

Video communications are enjoying their prime season. In particular, I am talking online video conferences, video consulting services, video streaming and video sales calls.

Not to mention the role video play on ALL social media platforms.

Yes, need for video production and video conferences has been accelerated by Covid-19. But we all know, that when pandemic is over, video conferences and other video services are not going anywhere. Demand for video services and video conferencing will continue to grow.

“How to look better in my videos during conferences and live streaming?”

People ask me this question a lot lately.

And to be honest, the answer is quite simple. At least for me.

See, as a headshot and portrait photographer, it’s what I do for living. I make people look good.

On the other hand, if you don’t have much experience in that field, the answer gets quite complicated.

Firstly, let’s talk video conferencing equipment. Unfortunately your phone, tablet or laptop won’t cut it. In other words, you’re looking for quality, you’re looking a wrong place.

Secondly, you’ll need basic knowledge about light/lighting, environment, room layout, number of participants, camera settings, hardware, software setup, etc.

I’ll be sharing video conferencing tips on my Youtube channel, but with so many variables, it just too complicated find one video conferencing setup solution that works for every individual.

It’s important to realize that all that basic knowledge on how to do video conferencing office setup is freely available online. Of course, you could just go for DIY video conference setup.  Figure out how it works, buy most up to date video conferencing equipment, build it, fine tune it and be a rock star. However, you will have some homework to do.
