  1. Record in a quiet place and make sure to face any window that has indirect light. Do not have a window or light directly behind you.

  2. Check your background. What’s in the frame says a lot about you. So make sure it's saying the right thing! Bookshelves, house plants, paintings and photography all make decent background props (as long as they are not too distracting). A plain wall is fine as well but give yourself enough distance that your shadow isn't a crisp silhouette on it. Check for any distracting items in your frame, and remove them. If you would like to use an A&S virtual background, check out the selection of Wallpapers and Virtual Backgrounds.

  3. Before you begin - If you have someone at home with you, ask them to check your lighting, background, etc., with their phone camera. Make any necessary fixes.

  4. Film horizontally (not vertically) - Computer monitors, televisions, even websites, all have landscape-oriented displays.

  5. Keep camera at eye level - Use a tripod or other support if recording by phone. Look directly at the camera.
