Simple Glam in Slideshows – Less is More!

Today’s guest post comes from SCU President and founder of Marketing Essentials International, Skip Cohen and Hybrid Photographer Suzette Allen.

Intro by Skip Cohen

Suzette Allen is back this week with a terrific point to remember; less is more!

Well, to Suzette’s point, “less is more” applies to video and your slideshows as much as not being a filter junkie applies to your still images. And, less can be more when it’s appropriate, providing you have the skill set to capture quality images to start.Continue reading
