I hope I've given you some useful tools and exercises that you can use to improve your performance on camera. Remember, talking on camera is not a natural thing, so be sure to practice. The more you practice, the better you'll look and sound on camera. If you are producing your own video productions, there are plenty of other courses on lynda.com that will help you improve your work. Be sure to check out the other courses in this On Camera series. If you will be appearing on camera and you need to apply your own makeup, you should check out On Camera: Video Makeup Techniques.
Video Lighting for the Web will help you light a room for budget video production using inexpensive lighting instruments that you might find in your home, office, or garage. If you plan to spend more time behind the camera, Fundamentals of Video: Cameras and shooting is a complete overview of essential shooting techniques for video production. Thanks again for joining me. Maybe one day I'll see you on TV.
