Tom Ford has offered his advice for how to look your best on camera during all those Zoom meetings and virtual house parties.
The fashion designer gave The New York Times âa masterclass in lightingâ, to help journalist Maureen Dowd ahead of a FaceTime interview with comedian Larry David.
Hereâs are Fordâs recommendations:
- Elevate the computer so the camera is slightly higher than your head. Ford recommends the camera is situated âabout the top of your headâ, and says to then point it âdown into your eyesâ.
- Place a tall lamp next to the computer âon the side of your face you feel is bestâ. He says the lamp should be âin line with and slightly behind the computer so the light falls nicely on your faceâ.
- Use a white tablecloth or put a piece of white paper on the table, out of sight. âIt will give you a bit of fill and bounceâ.
- Finally, Ford recommends âlots of powder, et voila!â
Of course, you can always make use of in-built filters on the app that you use. Zoom has an option to âtouch up my appearanceâ. But if you want to be able to claim that youâve gone âau naturelâ, Fordâs tips could be the way to go.
