Yes, I've seen some of that. I try to sit back far enough from the screen so not ALL of my wrinkles show. I do think I look older on video than in person but maybe I'm just kidding myself. 

I was on a video conference yesterday and one of the ladies always only has the top 3/4 of her head showing.

Hmm, I did not notice Lyn Sims . My monitor is close to eye to eye but you are correct that I'm actually looking down about 6".

I've turned off the news.  Still reading, but not watching the constant new about it.  Too political for me.

Camera skills, not everybody has them. I use a camera on a desktop tripod to look right at you at eye level. It's my Podcast skills 😂

I've noticed it too Lyn. And I've seen a butt-load of ads on Facebook for gadgets like tri-pods/selfie sticks and lighting to enhance the subject.

The angle, the camera, the sound, the lighting... your studio and window glare, sound isolation. Streaming live on your Zoom meetings reflects on your professionalism. Monitoring your feed is critical and looking into the camera, not fidgety. Fluorescent lighting can make a person look like they live in the morgue. Live bradcast streaming is so so not the same as pre-recorded where you control what you upload or not.
