Here are some general guidelines for framing a single subject while using a webcam. These guidelines work for most talking head shots as well.
- Height of the camera or laptop or webcam should be at eye level. If it’s too low, the shot will come from below and people will see up your nose.
- Your eye should be at or slightly above the top third of the frame.
- The strongest light source in the room, such as a lamp, or an open window) should be in front of you.
- There should be a tiny amount of space between the top of your head and the top of the frame.
