A poorly lit environment can substantially degrade the quality of your performance, and turn many viewers away. Alternatively, a well lit video performance can make all the difference in establishing a successful webcam modeling career. There is no need to break the bank on the most expensive studio lights, this is completely optional. For around $60-$80 you can purchase a decent studio photography kit with 2 umbrellas, 2 lights, and 2 stands. This will help in eliminating glare, reflections, hotspots, and shadows. Again, this is only optional. A standard lamp works just as well. Make sure to have the light facing you and not behind you. Nobody wants to see a lamp in the background.
