If you live with others, make sure they know you’re recording a video message in order to avoid interruptions.
Avoid recording yourself outside as there are unpredictable sounds and movement that may happen.

Feel free to move lamps around to see where the lighting looks best.
If you have natural light coming in through a window, position yourself so that the sunlight hits your face.
