Nowadays everybody is a broadcaster – no matter if you are vlogging, podcasting or even if you are just doing a video call. There is always this moment you might notice the sound, the light or even the pictures could use an extra bit of attention.

If you want to improve the quality of your video / audio content make sure to follow some simple guidelines:

  • use a tripod for the camera / smartphone and adjust it on eye level
  • use the natural light of a window for your face or have an extra lighspot
  • use a clip-on mic or an dynamic mic and fix it right below you mouth
  • use a silent room with no or low echo reflections
  • monitor you voice with some good headphones
