One of the best things about shows online is the interaction with the audience and the participation of the transmitter – you, the host of the event.
The audience can enjoy a lot your online performance, the music and your interaction with them, but nothing brings fans “into your space” as much as good lighting and cameras placed in the right places.
You spend a long time burilando your presentation, your look and feel that you want to pass to the event. Use some of the simple tips down here to make sure that the “vibe” is well transmitted by the camera. (We talked about creating the right vibe for your events in another post here.)
The Point Of View Of The Audience
When you go to put the camera to your webcast, think before you on your viewer’s perspective.
It is likely that they are sitting in front of a computer screen or with a Tablet type device or smartphone in hand. Some viewers may have connected the internet to your big screen TV, but most occurs happy with a small screen. This means that you need to be very careful with what will fit.
To be able to carry your audience to the show location that you created, it helps get a clear picture and next of your presentation on stage. An image that is too far away from the stage can make the viewer feel sitting in fundão the room.
Here’s an image of a band well framed in your presentation location. Note the lighting and the sense of depth that are present in this photo, and still allowing a close-up that makes the viewer feel in “front row” to view the artists. The light in the two components that are in the back of the band can be clearer, but the General vibe of the presentation is to be broadcast right from the camera.
You don’t want to get too close to the camera or the zoom is very closed her, or any movement you make on stage fira “out of frame” or end up being too distracting. Try to find a balance between capturing a close-up of the musicians and the back of the stage.
Hit it already will improve your visual connection that your audience has with you and with your event–especially if they’re seeing a small screen.
The Greatest Sin Of Illumination
Perhaps the worst thing you can do when riding your webcast is to put a very bright light behind the singer or the band.
A very strong background light will play a darker shadow on the faces of people who are ahead, and can also make the most simple webcams fit automatically for bright light conditions behind the musicians instead of suit for lighting the rest of the stage.
What you want to do is use focal lights (also called “key”) in front of the artists on stage. Backlights can be used cool, but as long as the lights in front of the performers are stronger and illuminate their faces.
It’s not meant to be hard to do the lighting and put the camera in the right place for your events online, but you should set aside some time to think about the location and layout of decor that will work both for those who are there and who you’re watching on the internet.
Remember, what is beautiful live don’t necessarily look good on camera, so always compare your final provision with which the camera is showing on the small screen.
