Creating PhotoEssays

Creating PhotoEssays-from concept to creation & presentation
Lance Gitter

One of the most powerful methods of sharing one’s photography is through Audio-Video presentations. Creating a PhotoEssay incorporating both stills and videos is like making a movie or documentary. It involves planning, from one’s original idea or concept, organizing a storyline, preparing images and video clips to show your best ones, and learning to use the various software tools to create a polished show. This presentation will cover the approach to A/V creation and presentation, and will include numerous award winning shows that I have created over the years to demonstrate and showcase the concepts and methods used to create them.
