I've noted in recent times that many YouTube videos show a single person not always speaking directly at the camera. I understand from my limited experience to video production many years ago that looking directly at the camera presents "eye contact" between the presenter and the viewer.
In the case of an interview or in a video with multiple subjects engaged in conversation, having a camera out of line with the face of a particular subject provides for a broader presentation, which can be useful in demonstration type videos.
I've done a few searches to this SE, finding it difficult to determine search terms. The answer presented in the closed question: Why use different camera angles? provides a confirmation of the information in the previous paragraph, in that there is more than one subject involved in the video.
It is disconcerting to see a camera shot from the 2 o'clock perspective (or any angle other than straight ahead) of the presenter speaking to the viewing audience, but not looking at the viewing audience.
I have not found a rationale for this camera position and suspect that it does not belong in any videos of my own creation or in those in which I will be involved.
This may sound like a rant, but it's a search for understanding ostensibly to prevent a future gaffe. It's possible, I suppose that it's a new presentation feature and should be included?
By request and from the camera view, directly to the camera:
Same video, from a camera placed off-line:
The video is of a doctor presenting information regarding the Corona Virus from YouTube. It starts a few seconds before the camera placement switch.
