Looking for men to skype
They are looking at your image on the screen, not at the camera.You can avoid giving this impression yourself by remembering to look at the camera and only occasionally glancing at the screen.You can get small LED video lights for under and mount them on inexpensive tripods for about apiece.Or you can simply use a couple of desk lights, but make sure they have the same type of bulb to avoid an off-putting color clash — say, bluish light from one and yellowish light from another.Whether it's for a job interview, meeting the in-laws or talking to friends, video services like Skype are making it easier to connect with people all over the world.They are also good ways to give a bad first impression, though, by making you look unattractive and inattentive.That reassures the person on the other end that you are paying attention.
If you can’t make that happen, try sitting by a window to use the natural light.
If you are using a webcam, it is probably on top of your monitor, looking down at you.
Neither setup provides a flattering angle: Nobody wants to see the contents of your nose or the bald spot on top of your head. That’s a much more flattering angle, and creates a more personal feel.
The best lighting setup is to have two light sources, one coming from behind your monitor, another coming from the side. You’ll look distracted and noncommittal to the conversation. You don’t need to wear a shirt and tie, but looking like you just rolled out of bed — in a sloppy way, not a sexy one — seems lazy and disrespectful.
Wear color if you want to stand out from your backdrop.
