Are you uncomfortable putting a lav mic on talent? Here’s a few techniques to make it a lot easier.

These are some good tips. I would like to add, if you’re uncomfortable touching the talent, you can just instruct them how to attach the microphone themselves and then make any minor adjustments as needed. Via NoFilmSchool

The thumb technique was interesting, but I’d caution against the open hand use like in the video, as it certainly looked like he was getting ready to grope the woman. I will usually demonstrate on myself for where the mic is going to be placed to avoid that upon first meeting someone. I would definitely recommend having the person put the wiring up their shirt themselves with your guidance and then making the adjustments yourself.
