MULTIMEDIA: Adding Impact with Movement and Music


In this world of moving imagery everywhere, it is vital that photographers learn to embrace videos and create at least hybrid multimedia products to stay relevant in the market. ReelStories are a powerful way to capture much more than is possible with a still image. By combining stills, short video clips, music (and perhaps audio), you can stir the hearts of the viewer and tell much more powerful and emotional stories!

Even fine artists or travel photographers can benefit from interactive bios or albums and coffee table books, utilizing AR [augmented reality] technology to create an unforgettable visual experience.

Join Suzette Allen, hybrid pioneer and Lumix Ambassador, along with her techie husband, Jon Yoshinaga to learn how to properly capture video, efficiently manage files, and easily trim and edit them with Lightroom, Photoshop and Photodex.

You will learn to make slow motion magic, cinemagraphs, and Live Portraits with video clips, as well as capture good audio for Talking Business cards and other commercial applications.

Authenticity and emotional appeal are natural byproducts of communicating with video, and leveraging those tools will change the way you capture life--Your images will come alive and tell stories that will captivate your viewers like never before!
