6.3 Lighting and Positioning
The live stream experience for the viewer is very visual.
So unless the audio set-up you're currently working with is truly terrible, I would recommend upgrading the visual elements first using lighting, positioning, backdrop improvement, and camera considerations.
- try streaming outside
- try streaming in front of a window
- clean your damned room! :P
- get creative with your backdrop if you can
- upgrade your lighting with ring lights or studio lights
- turn off that terrible yellow-y overhead light and figure out something else
- mount/position your phone or camera in a way that makes you look good
- a great view for the audience of your face and hands is beneficial (bonus: if you're using OBS and have more than one camera angle at your disposal, maybe you can have a hand view if you're a piano or guitar player, etc.)
- the visual element might be the thing that gets viewers into the stream, or what keeps them there
