It is very important that the phone is fixed at a suitable height and distance. You can use special tripods or with home initiatives and using simple objects such as paper cups, paper clips, pencils and books, to stabilize the phone at a suitable height and distance (image below).

Lighting and camera height according to the face

As mentioned in the general guide, your environment should be completely bright or at least a very good light should shine on your face. There should not be a window or light source behind you, you should not stick to the wall and you should be at least one meter away from the wall behind you, which should be completely plain.

As you can see in the picture above, the camera is at a suitable height and shows the teacher from the front, and the teacher is looking straight ahead. If your camera is placed lower or higher, the quality will not be acceptable and you will have to re-record and correct the angle.

Image frame and sound quality

The camera should not be too far or too close to you. Make sure that the sound is recorded well and with full clarity. There should not be too much empty space on any of the edges of the image. For a clearer explanation, refer to the video guide above.
