Good helpful advice, Grant. Thanks! So i am not going to stop using what I had presumed was that great background shot of you and I running from the bears in Jasper.

Ha ha. I got a laugh out of that. Yes you should not use that photo.

By the way, I remember saying more than one over-served convention goer from elk during rutting season.

Yet another brilliant post Grant. Thank you for the 'high-tech' tips...nobody wants their camera to hate them!

Thank Alan. I should have mentioned, if I only had $75 to spend, I would buy a decent USB microphone and take a lamp I already owned and placed it behind the camera. Most laptop and desktop cameras will do the job with better lighting.

Great reminders. After setting everything up perfectly, I forget to look at the camera. I've started taping my notes and cheat sheets just behind the camera.

Thanks. It also depends on how close the camera is to you when you look slightly off camera. If the camera is about 18 inches away, then looking even a little off camera for a few seconds can be a real bad look. If it's six feet away then it's not so bad. Trial and error always helps.

By the way, learning NOT to look at yourself takes real practice.
