A few extra tips:

  • Record your video well-lit.
    If you’re able, face a light source (window) so the light is showing on your face and not coming in from behind you.
  • Think about sound.
    Remember the microphone picks up much of the noise around you.  So, if others are talking down the hall, the video will record it.
  • Keep your background simple.
    Find a space in your home that is simple and does not have distraction in the background.
