Mic up your Presenter
Clip the Lapel mic on the presenter's shirt or dress around the collar. Get them to hide the transmitter behind them or in a pocket. To hide the cord, ask the presenter to run the cord underneath their clothing where it can re-emerge out of sight. Make sure everything is sitting fairly flat and no hair or jewellery is rubbing against the microphone foam. If it does, this will cause a scratching sound; listen out for this during setup and again while recording.
If your presenter's movements are causing noise to be picked up on the mic, advise them and request to do another take.
Keep your headphones in the whole time you are recording important audio - there may be room or outdoor noises you don't notice at the time that you will pick up on while listening through the headphones. If so, it never hurts to do one more take!
