Show Notes & Resources Mentioned

3 Instant Takeaways

    1. Double check that you’re shooting in manual mode. Some exposure issues can be solved by turning off the auto settings and learning how to correctly use the manual settings on your camera.
    2. Make time for a run through. A run through will happen before your service and will be where you go through your service as though it’s actually happening. This will allow your whole team, but especially your tech team, to work through any glitches that might come up. It also ensures that everyone knows exactly when everything is happening, which can help create smoother transitions.
    3. Use photos of people’s faces on your social media. Instead of defaulting to graphics or pictures of hands being raised, try using pictures where you can clearly see individual faces. People connect with people, and seeing the face of someone the recognize from church will help grab attention.

    Just a thought..have you played with the brightness of the screen on stage? Perhaps it’s too bright?

    • Cassie Kurtz

      We have! Hasn’t made too big of a difference. I really think it’s the settings on the camera.
