Looking forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

A video I made just for this

Ivanka share

I recorded this video to illustrate how I look and sounds on professional video calls. I am interested in any suggestions you might have to improve my video presence.

  • I would look at your framing. You are low and far away in the frame. I would suggest thinking about thirds. Your eyes should be on the top third line of the frame. i can send you a framer if you'd like rabbidavidp ( 1 )

    Lots of advanced stuff going on but… I dunno… what should I fix next?

    Looking at it now, it’s quite jittery. Maybe it’s all too much for my laptop.

  • [From Lois Richter] Dim background lighting so there is more contrast with your face michael ( 1 )

  • Sort of lighting but can you move away from your background a little so most of the light is on you and there is distance and definition between you and your background? rabbidavidp ( 1 )

  • [From Lois Richter] Have you tried both cameras, so that you know you have the better one pointed at your face? Main camera seems low-contrast/out of focus michael ( 1 )

  • [From Lois Richter] I think that while red and blue lights make an interesting BACKGROUND, they don't belong shining on a human face -- especially not on different sides. michael ( 1 )

  • As you said you look quite pale and washed out. I wonder if putting the colored lights on the background and adding a hair light might help rabbidavidp ( 1 )

  • For some reason, could be lighting, the shot your getting isn’t clean and clear. Might just need to clean the teleprompter and fix the lighting. rabbidavidp ( 1 )
