How to Video Conference Like A Pro
How to Video Conference Like A Pro

PRO TIP #1
Lighting is the most important factor in nailing your next video meeting. It’s important to light your face and avoid bright lights above you or behind you. To accomplish this you can place a desk lamp in line with and slightly behind the computer so the light falls nicely on your face. If you’re the kind of person who likes to go the extra mile you can even place a white piece of paper or a white tablecloth on your desk to get an even better lighting experience.

PRO TIP #2
Avoid sitting in front of a window as this will cause excess back lighting and a poor overall lighting experience. If sitting in front of the window is a must the easiest way to avoid a poor lighting situation is by adding window drapery to block out the light.

PRO TIP #4
If you don’t have home office space readily available try to carve out a dedicated workspace in a different room. This will help you control the lighting and background and avoid the need to sit on your sofa or bed for your next video meeting. We have a wide variety of desks and chairs that can quickly transform the corner of any room into your new WFH oasis.
