Setup - Do you have good lighting in your home office?

Last updated by SSW.Rules.SharePointExtractor on 22 Feb 2021 02:33 am (9 months ago) See History

Light can improve your productivity and the general quality of your calls. The best light will always be the natural one from a window.

Here are some tips:

  • If you have a desk lamp, move it so it is not directly on your face or on a white background to avoid extreme contrasting on your image
  • Avoid having light (even from a window) behind you, otherwise, it can create annoying glare on your monitor or shadows on your work station
  • You can have a nice work station with some decorative lights, such as desk lamps

A good tip from The Spruce blog is to position your home office station facing north or south so that the sunlight doesn't throw a shadow at any point during the day, making you move your setup frequently.
