How to Look (and Feel) Confident on Camera - Boot Camp Basics Ep. 104

Mar 14, 2024 9:00:00 AM / by Tucker Tyree posted in Video Mail, SalesMail, Boot Camp Basics


Welcome to Boot Camp Basics, where we’re diving into the art of camera confidence so you can feel bold while you broadcast.

But you can overcome that by flipping your phone around. You won't be able to see yourself, which might feel like flying blind. However, this forces you to focus on where the lens is, and as a bonus, the rear camera often records in higher quality.

From simple adjustments (like the lens gaze) to transformative practices (like a pre-recording ritual), your journey to bold broadcasting starts right here. Read or watch on to explore more empowering techniques for camera confidence.

In a world where first impressions dictate success, your video's frame isn't just a square—it's your stage. Optimizing your Frame Game enhances message clarity, captivates viewers, and ensures your content takes center stage.

For example, a crooked frame could create a sense of discomfort, which might draw attention away from you, the subject. To help you create a more immersive video, align the top of your phone to be parallel with the ceiling and floor.

From the rule of thirds to advanced camera positioning, we've got you covered. Maximize the impact of your message, engage your audience, and turn your frame into a stage for success with our SalesMail framing techniques.
