You do not have to sit down, as I do most of the time, more and more, toastmasters find that they can stand up and speak.
When you stand up, more gestures can be made and seen.
At the beginning, we believed we have to show then all from us, but look here, this far is already enough. I looked at television too, they to same.
He went a bit farther, still enough to show hand and arm gestures, and at the same time, see also the face and the rest.
You can also see, comparing the two, that contrast between the background and tee-shirt, helps to point out more the head and the arms the fingers.
We have to experiment.
More the one way. Most important, is to learn when which to use online. Or even when we speak to a room, how much take in the video we make.
As his expression is so strong, I want to see more of his face, and that I do not see all of his hands does not really mother.
He also used a very contrasting, different background. At the beginning, it attracts attention, but as he took me with his content, I forgot all but what he said.
And the very varied expressions, that went so well with it.
As usual, and I do change my background but not often, I stay near my computer, my desk, write notes or show slides.
I did try to stand up, but showed all of me, and was too far. Of course, with a proper wireless clicker I my even change slides.
What I have to realize and experiment more, is the "proper" on standing but not too far going, to show just enough from myself so my expression would be still well seen.
In plus, we have to remember, because of the wavelength, we have to move a bit slower.
