Lighting and Environment Of Your Cam Show

by Alex Shwarz on May 12, 2009 · 0 comments

It’s important to have your lighting and environment correct to set the mood and portray you the way you want. What you’re looking for is proper lighting and a tidy and prop-handy background (not many could get off when you have a really messy bedroom).

Proper lighting is vital for your shows. Make sure you have a good light source behind the camera (so your client can see your face and body clearly). Often people just use their computer monitor if it’s bright enough and if the cam is beside or on it.  The lighting you have in the room (and in front of you) should show off your best bodily assets. You don’t want it too dark so the client can’t see you properly or it displays any unwanted features (cellulite, rings under your eyes, blemishes etc), nor too bright for the same reasons.

With the environment, a light wall background to contrast your darker bed against your light body is ideal, or a light bed if you have darker skin. If you have a large mirror, position it several feet behind on an angle (you can judge by taking delayed pictures from your cam if you don’t have someone to help you. This can do wonders for the time the client spends on cam with you and it also enables them to see behind and in front of you. It is especially effective when you’re bending over doggy style towards the camera (they get to see both sides of you).

All it takes is a little trial and error to get everything where you need it and is vital for allowing your client to see what they’re paying for.
