Note: This blog post has an accompanying video: I replaced my office lights for better video quality.
Earlier this year, I started recording more videos and doing live streams in my office. Originally I just used a webcam, a Logitech C920.
This is a frame of video from that webcam. It's adequate, but not too flattering, and you can see there's a lot of contrast where one side of my face is bright and blown out, and the other side is 'muddy' or 'flat'.
