"Suzette Says" is all about helping you build your skill set as a storyteller and filmmaker. Most photo educators always focus on your technique as a photographer and videographer regarding capturing great images, but without a better understanding of sound quality, your story is going to be missing the impact it deserves. Just like capturing stunning images, there are no shortcuts!
Understanding how to adjust your sound levels is critical to creating a great slide show and with hybrid technology you've got an opportunity to combine video with still images. In this video, Suzette is using a LUMIX GH4, but the importance of sound quality is universal, no matter what gear you're working with. I've also pulled an older video of Suzette's which is below and will give you a little exposure to microphone choices and the differences.
Remember why I'm so excited about getting a little help from Suzette and this new Photodex feature. Slide shows, even though they've been around for many years, are without question the "next big thing." So, while you might think they're an old concept - that's not the perception your clients have, especially with hybrid technology pulled into everything from talking business cards to more traditional storytelling.
I've written this many times before - if you're not offering slide shows in your mix of products and services then you're missing an opportunity to grow your business. Even better is the potential for goodwill and reaching potential clients you've never met.
Think about it for just a second. I just described every business owner's primary target audience - the client who you haven't met. We're a word-of-mouth business, and nothing beats a happy client sharing your work over and over again with other people. Your goal is to exceed client expectations and make yourself habit-forming! A great hybrid slide show is a perfect way to do that.
they insist that their friends do business with you.
