1. The rule of third…
2. Pay attention to camera position
If you are recording on web cam (not recommended because of poor quality) make sure the computer is elevated, so that the camera lens is at your eye level.Using a mobile camera and the mobile holder might be more convenient. You can clip it to your desktop, table or a shelf. It allows a more flexible set up – pretty much anywhere.
3. Look into the camera
- look right into the camera
- do not look at yourself on the screen
- don’t read the text from the screen
4. Record with your mobile
5. Use camera holders
When y record on your mobile, these devices might come handy.Mobile holder and light ring
This is my favourite and I use it a lot for quick recordings. You can clip it to the table counter and it is USB powered, so no need to be close to the electricity socket. https://amzn.to/2F7KLUgMobile phone holder
2-stage stainless steel is pretty stable and rotate. Also the phone holder rotates. It is perfect for managing the framing of your shot. https://amzn.to/3d8HdgZ

7. Make sure you have good lighting.
If you are at your desk, use at least two or three three-point lighting setup. It doesn’t have to be anything professional (although camera lighting is affordable now), and you can use a desk lamp
