presentation fashion: the audio guy's tips

Life in the Corporate Theater blog has a useful set of tips for what not to wear when you're using a lavalier microphone--a list that includes large necklces and blouses with ruffles or low necklines, which, respectively, create more noise or keep the mic too far from your mouth. I'd add another: Women with long hair should keep it pulled back or behind their shoulders when wearing a lavalier mic, because it also can create noise problems. I'm working on some video demos to show you these and other "appearance issues" for your next speech--stay tuned! A hat tip to Breaking Murphy's Law blog for pointing us to this post.
