Robert, I love all your comments. It's a good service you're doing. It was evident from both of your messages today that one or both cameras were very close to your face, which results in a bit of foreshortening. I'm from the "old school" of photography, which used a 90 mm "portrait" lens with 35 mm film. My suggestion - back up both cameras to about twice their present distance, and use a mild telephoto setting. If sound level is a problem, use a third mike or camera even closer than the present one. Result -- you'll look a bit better, and your sound balance can be better as well.

In a perfect world that is exactly what we would do. However, we are often cramped in a sea of pianos with little room to walk much less capture from a distant camera with a telephoto lens! Thanks for the keen observation.

I figured. And, well, we try. We all do. Thanks.
