How to Get Comfortable on Camera
Pause On Perfection
Think, when you mess up when leaving a voicemail, you don’t just hang up and try again! You correct yourself and don’t think twice about it. And if you’re really not a fan of your first take, you can always re-record.
These imperfections reiterate the fact that you are human and allow you to reveal your authentic personality.
Take a deep breath and find a quiet place where you’re alone for your first few takes. Eventually, you’ll be able to record your videos anywhere, anytime. But for beginners, it’s best to eliminate as many obstacles as possible.
Find A Flattering Default
We’re typically more comfortable and confident when we like the way we look. So, for the most flattering video, raise your camera to roughly eye level and frame your head, neck, and shoulders in the view. For the best lighting, make sure the light source is in front of you.
The more you record, the easier it will get. To start, fix your eyes on your computer or phone camera, not on yourself. This gives the impression of making eye contact and is more engaging to the recipient!
