Up Your Video Conferencing Background Game with Help From Barbizon Lighting

Thanks to COVID-19, since mid-March many of us are working (or not working) remotely. Video conferencing programs like Zoom are being used more and more so we can see who we're talking to rather than traditional conference calls.

One neat (or some might say annoying) feature of Zoom is the ability to change your background.  If you haven't experimented already here's what you do...
Sign in to the Zoom desktop client. Click your profile picture then click Settings. Select Virtual Background. Note: If you do not have the Virtual Background tab and you have enabled it on the web portal, sign out of the Zoom Desktop Client and sign in again.
We looked around in our archives and found some interesting images you can download and use on your next call to clean up that background so the people your online with don't need to see everything behind you.

Click on the images below and can save them to your system.  The images are sized to 1920x1080.
