Once you have the eye line right, make sure you have the right amount of headroom. Headroom is the amount of space between the top of your head and the top of the screen. That is about the right amount of headroom you should have.
Place your computer so that the camera is seeing you from your chest up. Be aware of the space behind you. Make sure the area behind you is interesting but not cluttered. Always be aware of your surrounding because what ever is around you will be seen in your meeting. Do not have your back close to the wall behind you. Give yourself some distance behind you so that there is depth to your image. A good distance, if possible, is around three to four feet from the wall behind you. Be aware of your light source.
Never set your computer up where there is a bright light source behind you. It might seem like a good idea to arrange yourself in front of a window so that your beautiful backyard is highlighted behind you – but unless you have a lot of light on your face coming from behind your computer to counter the light from the window you will end up being a black blob in front of a bright light.
Use the horizontal mode on your phone. Always use your phone in the horizontal position when you are on a video conference call. When you phone is vertical everyone in your meeting will see huge black bars on either side of you.
Your image will always look better using all of the screen not just the middle third. Sound is important.
