I found out over the past month that I were absolutely spoiled at events by operating with knowledgeable AV crew. At home, it’s just me. And when faced with complex era, my tendency has too often been to claim lack of knowledge. I was, in any case, an English major. But in an expert surroundings, for those who are to your own without an IT branch, technical complications just end up making YOU look bad.
There’s no one else in charge. So skip the reasons, watch some YouTube videos your self and conquer your fear of having technical. This isn’t like programming the Mars rover. You can do that. All of the sunshine tutorials I watched on YouTube were great, but complex. You should buy ring lights or hook up web enabled dimmers to your phone – however the real secret to how I’m getting pretty good light on all my calls comes right down to three words: face a window.
When your face is to the window, you avoid backlighting the largest lighting fixtures challenge a lot of people have and odd shadows too. The picture below is me in my home office with NO extra lighting. I literally just rotated to face the window in its place of putting it behind me. Of course, this won’t work if you’re in a room with no windows or at night – so if that’s the case, get good lights from the front a ring light works for this and begin with that. We all know that virtual meetings aren’t seamless. Sometimes everyone is hard to hear.
And your WiFi may be slow. It’s tempting to always be apologizing for this, or even worse, apologizing before anything else even goes wrong!Instead, drift and adapt to the difficulties. If they persist, be decisive in what to do about it – even if it’s asking all and sundry to sign off and then back in, or the worst case situation of rescheduling the assembly. People might not like it, but they are going to definitely respect it more if you didn’t waste 30 minutes trying to get the whole lot working before eventually canceling.
