The place for streaming online webcam
How to arrange a room for broadcasting / bedroom
One of the first steps in getting started as a web model is to set up a posting location. There are several ways to achieve this. Lots of camgirls do this easily from their bedroom. Another will set up a dedicated webcam room (which is recommended if you have extra space). Whichever direction you go, several aspects need to be taken into account: lighting, cleanliness and room settings. Here are some tips to help you get started.
Dedicated / specialized room vs bedroom
The two most common rooms used to perform shows are either a bedroom or a dedicated special room. If you have additional spaces that can be converted into a dedicated webcam room, this is recommended for several reasons. The webcam room will not be filled with your regular linen, you will not have to make sure that the beds are constantly adjusted, if you have another person who shares a home with you, they will be able to use the bedroom. In a reserved room, you can leave all your dildos, props and other items in an open or open place.
Webcam room maintenance
It is really important to keep the webcam room clean. If not the whole room, then at least part (s) that will be visible in the shot. You should be the main focus of the shot. No clutter, dirty clothes or trash. This is one of the reasons why it is advisable to have a special room dedicated to the website. Thanks to the reserved room, the laundry, the unmade bed and other clutter will not disturb the environment for the show.
Lighting – natural light vs 3 point lighting system
Lighting is very important and is something that all models should think about. If you have good natural light in the room, you can use it during the day. At night (or if there is no good natural light) you will rely on the lights that are in the room. If the room does not have good lighting, you may want to invest in a three-point lighting system. Lighting systems are available on the Internet and it is easy to build a three-point lighting system.
Lighting settings as required: Lighting can also be used to set the right atmosphere. Going in a darker environment can make things more mysterious and shadows can highlight the curves of your body. Play with different light settings and see which levels suit you best. Also note that the lighting will look different on the camera than it actually is. What is well lit for your eyes may look completely different on the camera.
Furniture: bed, table, shelfs
Think about what kind of furniture you want in the room. The beds work great and it’s a good idea to throw a bed in the cam room if you’re not turning out of the bedroom. If you are transmitting from the bedroom, you will already have a bed there. Having a desk on your computer is also helpful, especially since you will spend a lot of time at the computer when you are not on the show. Shelves, drawers and other storage space are also suitable.
Storage and organization: Drawers and cabinet
You will want your cam room to be well organized and everything you need within easy reach. The last thing you want is to move out of focus to find something. It’s not good for private and even worse for public chatting. If someone joins your room and you are not there, they will press the “back” button very quickly!
Preservation / display of sex toys: If you use sex toys in your shows, you will want to place them so that you can easily reach them. If you can show them on a webcam (on a shelf or bed stand), it’s definitely a plus! It lets potential customers know what type of toys you are working with and all the options available. wherever you put your sex toys, don’t let them touch each other! Dildos that touch each other can corrode.
Colors / Color schemes: Painting, bedding and posters
You want to be the center of attention, so try to create a place that will ensure it. Neutral colors like white, gray or cream are great. Then add color accents with bed linen, sofa cover or pillows. Pillows can be expensive and you could end up with a full pillow closet. Buying different pillowcases that fit the same pillows is a great way to change things without having a huge collection of pillows.
Curtains and (removable) wallpaper without peeling and gluing
You can put on a stick and hang various curtains in this way so that you can change the environment. The best place with the most styles and material at an affordable price is Amazon. Wall stickers and wallpapers are also available. The wallpaper is peeled off and glued without damaging the walls. With both of these methods, you can easily change the color schemes of your room without having to paint.
Green background: step forward!
Do you want to take things one step further? With green screens, the possibilities are endless! Setting up green screens takes some time and requires setting up background software (OBS works well for that), but with a green background you can do a lot of creative things.
Room sound settings
The camera room is not just about visuals. Sound plays an important role in a webcam show. Note: First read the principles of your portal where you make a website when it comes to playing music! Some sites actually provide royalty-free music that you can use in your room! There are some copyright issues with using other artists’ music!
Playing music can act as a distraction for and provides you with enough stimuli to stay moving, even if you just shake your chest a little! Music can also act as a conversation topic!
How the environment affects your appearance
It is important to ensure that you look good in both the lighting and the room. The environment can have a huge impact on your personal appearance. This is especially true with different lighting settings. Keep in mind that everything will look different on camera (or film). Here are some makeup tips
Natural make-up: The important thing about make-up is that it can look completely different on the camera than in real life. Having your makeup “natural” can look like you don’t have one. Exaggerating makeup can sometimes look good as well. Webcams and the human eye are very different things, and if you don’t stream through a digital SLR, your skin tones are likely to be faint sometimes, and shadows can make things look weird.
Exaggerate: Things that would normally look bad personally can definitely add to your webcam, such as basics and concealer. If you feel embarrassed in your skin, get over it! It will hardly be apparent. You can also change your appearance using webcam settings. I often add satiety to my stream because I’m not too tanned and sometimes I look faded!
Testing lights: If you’re wondering how you look at the camera, the best way to figure it out is to actually test it! You can set up the camera, do your makeup and see what you look like in front of the camera. It is possible to dim the lighting, decorations, clothes and makeup and find the perfect combination that will make you look as amazing as possible!
Shooting / Web in other places
Sometimes you will move in places other than the room in which you normally live. Sometimes it can be in a different place than in your house!
Public places: Please don’t be one of those girls who becomes viral from making a webcam at a library or school. In fact, you should avoid public places at all costs! First – it’s most likely illegal (depending on where you are). If caught, it will also leave a black spot throughout the industry.
Garden: If your backyard has really good privacy (especially if you have no neighbors), shooting from the garden is definitely a good choice. Make sure everything is close enough to the wifi router and that you still have a good upload speed.
Hotel shows: Shows can be done from the hotel rooms, and if you are traveling, this may be your only option. Many hotel rooms have very thick walls, but noise is something you should consider as well. The second major challenge for a camera from a hotel room is that the internet is often slow. This is caused by many people using the same Wi-Fi at the same time. Also make sure you have a “do not disturb” sign on the door.
