One of the major problems for a lot of people when they go live using a phone, tablet or even a webcam is where to look. As I said yesterday, connecting with the audience by speaking into the lens is imperative, however it’s not always that easy. (more…)
So, you’re prepared for you live video. You have it all planned out, you’ve got your 3 or 4 great resonating moments / bullet points to help you talk about your blog subject as a true voice of authority. However, how do you talk to, not at your audience?
This is something I struggled with as a radio presenter. My first snoop (listen back to a show with the boss) went something like this. “Simon, how’re you going to connect with the listener. Right now you’re talking at them, they won’t want to be your mate or go for a pint with you, you need to create an emotional connection”. So off I went with those words ringing in my ears, how the hell was I going to make a connection with the audience when they’re not there for me to bounce off, to respond to what I’m saying or more importantly, for me to talk to. That’s when it struck me, what I needed was something to replace them in the studio, something that meant I was able to connect and talk to them without them all being in the studio with me.
I placed a small stuffed toy on the window sill just behind the mic and started talking to him, it felt instantly different, having that thing to talk to made all the difference. Obviously he didn’t talk back to me or laugh at my jokes (it’d be really fucking scary if he did) but, it made all the difference to my style of communication to an invisible audience. This is how you need to approach your live video content, place a soft toy behind the lens, a photo of a best friend, your partner, a loved one, just someone or something you can talk to, rather than worrying about the audience behind the lens or the picture of you on the screen.
Make sure it’s behind the lens and nowhere else, and you’ll absolutely fly and feel the difference instantly yourself too.

Although they’re not for everyone, a lot of people enjoy bonfire night on November 5th, and we’ve all pulled out our camera to take a picture and missed the moment, or it’s come out all grainy, fuzzy and not really captured the event.
So, to help you out, here’s some simple tips for settings on your DSLR so you know how to photograph fireworks
1. Set your ISO as low as possible, 100 or 200 is ideal
2. Set you aperture to F/11
3. Set the shutter speed to about 1/2 a second
It’s really that simple, nothing extra, then snap away. If you feel your photos are a bit dim, alter your shutter speed while leaving everything else, although, of course the slower the shutter speed the more steady you need to be, so maybe using a tripod wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Have fun, and post your firework photos on our page www.facebook.com/perceptionstudiosuk on bonfire night, we look forward to seeing your shots.
