Suggestions: Please make sure there is very little to no outside noise, and make sure the lighting is good enough to see the musician. Set up the camera so the musician can be seen from at least the waist up, and position the music stand so we can see the musician’s instrument. For those using larger instruments, please try to capture as much of the musician as possible in the frame.
