The Studio location is temporarily closed,
but LIFE goes on!
SARS-Cov-19 has closed my physical studio space, but I am not closed down. There is much to do, much to learn, and many ways for all of us to serve during this crisis.
LIGHTING FOR ZOOM MEETINGS
I have had some people ask how to set up good lighting for ZOOM meetings, so I put together this brief 'cheat sheet' to make it quick-n-easy.
The background should be lit less (be darker) than you.
You'll be the star of the show!
The room itself should be lit evenly throughout
Not in a 'striking' fashion of bright and dark
The STRONGEST LIGHT (the one that lights you):
Should be 'soft' light, not harsh and 'pointy'.
Having it be large makes it 'soft'.
Using a white 'bounce card' softens the light.
Having it off to the side of your monitor is best.
This drawing shows a quick-n-easy way to make it happen:
Make sure there aren't shiny things behind you.
(they'll be too bright, and distracting)
Wear solid color mid-tone to darker clothes.
This makes your face the brightest object.
Patterns and prints distract the viewer.
Don't worry about anything else.
You are now WAY ahead of anyone else!
