Session 250: Pro Tips To Improve The Quality Of Live Videos with Michael Michael Rothermel


Today’s show is a special episode as we celebrate STC hitting the ONE MILLION downloads’ milestone. When I started the podcast, I thought one million downloads was a reasonable 20-year-goal, but here we are, just five years along in the journey. To mark this occasion, I’m going solo today with advice to the younger me, or what I wish I had known five years ago.

What We’ll Learn

  • People pay attention to your video content, so it needs to be good quality
  • Michael’s top three tips for quality video:
    • Sound
      • Find a quiet place with minimal background noise
      • Keep the mic as close to you as possible; an external mic is best
    • Lighting
      • Light is the key to how good you look on video
      • Natural light is best, but artificial light can work if you keep Michael’s DISC acronym in mind
    • Composition
      • Think about the visual elements in the background
      • Make sure the camera, phone, or computer is stabilized and at eye level
