A few weeks ago the "Queen of Hybrid," Suzette, put together a series of slide shows featuring each member of Panasonic's LUMIX Luminary Team, of which she's also a member. I'll be sharing more of the videos in the weeks ahead, but today I chose these two presentations because they each represent completely different specialties. Or maybe not so much - Daniel photographs wildlife outdoors and Charles and Jennifer photograph "wild life," mostly indoors. (LOL - you didn't honestly think I could just let that one by did you?)
Several things to pay attention to during each video:
- Every image shared was captured with a camera from the LUMIX family. Panasonic's tagline of "Changing Photography" couldn't be more accurate.
- Effective slide shows don't have to be long. Both of these are under a minute.
- Notice how Suzette tells each story - good music, great images and enough information to tell you what you need to know about the artist.
- How would you tell your story? Could you do an effective marketing piece in a minute or less?
Thanks to technology everything in the way we share images has changed over the last few years and just keeps getting better. As imaging artists, you have the largest selection of creative tools in the history of photography. This includes the tools you have for marketing, and if you're not creating slideshows to show your work and skills as a storyteller, then you're missing a golden opportunity.
And, between the features of LUMIX cameras and Photodex software for creating slide shows, it couldn't be easier to share the stories you want to tell! I told Photodex years ago since I'm a poster child for user-friendly technology, they should use me for a testimonial ad - "If Skip can do it, anybody can!" Check out ProShow 8, loaded with features to help you create outstanding presentations.
