Illuminate your Day With a Video Conference Light
Most people know how important lighting is when it comes to extravagant content creation. But what they don’t realize is that the proper lighting can make a simple meeting held in your home office look extravagant.
Examples of poor lighting include glare, flickering lights, insufficient lighting, or too much light. These things can cause call participants to appear unprofessional, negligent, or downright creepy in some cases. Here’s a quick trick for instantly improving your lighting for Zoom meetings (or whatever your Meeting app of choice is).
If you’re sitting near a window, you want to make sure it’s in front or beside you, and NOT behind you, which would cause you to look shadowy. Not good.
And If you’re on the go, not in a well-lit room, or tend to have video calls at night, you’ll need an external light like one of the many low to mid-priced models we sell right here in our shop. Before we show you our favorite choices, let’s go over a couple of things to look for when selecting a light to help take your conference calls to a whole other level!
Our Top Tips: Get a conference light that allows you to control brightness settings when necessary. Lights with color temperature controls are even better, and a light that lets you easily adjust its positioning is a must to avoid some of the scenarios mentioned above.
