Level it up with Snap! Snap has a camera plug in with all there AR filters that plugs into Zoom and I don't know why more people aren't talking about it: https://snapcamera.snapchat.com/

Good tips. Also, it doesn't even need to be fancy to be useful. Zoom's image algorithm filters out a lot of stuff that's not you .. so when your kid opens the door behind you and wanders in, s/he doesn't distract the meeting.

My friend Pablo has a funny "Employee of the Month" image you can use as a background: http://pablorochat.com/freebies
