Lately I had a lot of videoconferences, which is due to a project I’m working on at the moment. I had them in various places like the office, meeting rooms, from home or just at random places where I happened to be. Light always seemed to be an issue. Since I’m not the only one with this problem, I notice it with other participants of videoconferences. Looking at someone in a bad lighted room is very fatiguing after a while.
Matthew Bietz wrote a good article about how he solved this issue and about his expectations of other peoples perception of him during meetings.
I think I have to make my home office video-ready as well.
