  1. DO NOT film with a mirror or window in the frame behind you in the daytime.
    a. If needed, Reposition the camera to be at an angle to not include the mirror (it will reflect the light coming from the window and wash out your video)

  4. DO NOT whisper- If wearing a mask, speak clearly and loud enough to be heard. When possible, use a family member over 18 that is safe to use as a model, so that you and the model can go without a mask.
