As COVID-19 thrust professionals into a new digital era, many people turned to video meetings in place of school, work and conferences.
"And many of you are probably looking into the picture window at yourself and saying, 'Really? I look that bad?'" writes Jefferson Graham in a USA Today article.
Graham writes that it doesn't have to be that way. He checked in with Florida photographer Larry Becker, the author of a book called "Great on Camera" about how to improve our virtual appearance using professional broadcaster techniques.
"These days one of the biggest problems with us all having incredibly easy access to video recording and online sharing, which is a part of everyday life, is that people with zero training about being on camera, are making terrible mistakes they don’t even know about," Becker's website states. "They’re destroying their own credibility, and with just a few simple changes, they could really connect and their sales would be through the roof."
