5.Lights, camera, action
The last thing to check before going LIVE is your lighting. Ideally, you’ll be able to usenatural light and face toward it so that the light is coming from directly behind the camera. This gives you the perfect lighting that highlights you most flatteringly. In case there is no natural light available, no problem! Direct a light to bounce off the nearest wall, gently reflecting back on to your face, as a direct light can be harsh and cause strange coloring. Just like in showbusiness, do a few lighting tests to see which best captures you in your bestlight.
