5 Tricks to Look Good in Zoom Meeting

Last Updated: 2022. 05. 27

Zoom has proven on several occasions that it has the capacity to change the way we conduct meetings. Its usefulness was proven during the COVID-19 global lockdown. While everyone else was indoors, Zoom users were busy leveraging its usefulness. Statistics showed that the company generated $4 billion in revenue, a 53% increase in 2021, that's towards the end of the lockdown: another evidence that people leveraged the platform during the pandemic. But then, as much as Zoom plays a fundamental role in conducting meetings remotely, there is still a need to look good while on it.

It is not just enough to appear on Zoom videos; there is a need to also look good on it. So, if you are looking for how to look good at a Zoom meeting, we have taken the time to draft some tricks you need to make this possible. Just follow.

How to Look Good in Zoom Meeting

1. Keep the main light in front of you

Zoom works with the computer's webcam or the inbuilt camera, just like we have on our phones. The more light you expose to the object before it, the brighter it becomes. So, if you want to appear more gorgeous in from of your caller's screen, try to expose yourself to more light. You can use a table lamp or increase the brightness of your fluorescent light: just about anything to increase the brightness.

2. Get your camera at the eye level

Now, this is where the position of your camera plays a major role. The closer your camera, the better your appearance on the other end. So, to appear better on the screen of the other viewer, you have to position your camera up to eye level. This way, your viewer at the other end will be able to see your head down to your chest area, which is the recommended viewing angle of any Zoom call.

3. Make sure your head is in the top thirds

For your head to be on the top thirds means that you are striking a balance between your head, your body, and the camera. It is almost the same as getting the camera at eye level: it's all about striking balance.

4. Clean background

Depending on the kind of meeting you are holding on Zoom, your background should be clean. Distractions like children playing around your background, the television or audio playing in the background must be checked. Such things can easily distract your viewer, and you wouldn't want that to happen in a company meeting.

5. Good audio

While we talk about how to look good in zoom calls, it is important we also talk about how to sound on Zoom calls. As we have earlier stated, you have to avoid distracting audio sounds like TV or sound from a Compound Disk. That way, your viewer(s) will be able to concentrate.
