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!

If you look back over the last decade of many of your images, you’ll see a variety of trends. I remember sitting in WPPI judging at least 12-14 years ago and the judges commenting on there being too many “filter junkies.” Just because you know how to use the hundreds of tools in your image manipulation bag, doesn’t mean you have to use them all, and too often there were dozens used on the same image.

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

Great Video Tips to Make it Fast and Simple!

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 and I have been friends for a lot of years, and I was thinking about everything she teaches in her workshops and her blog, along with all of her images and videos I’ve seen over the years. She’s not a photographer, but the ultimate storyteller. Everything she shares, together with the techniques she teaches are all about helping you tell a better story. And, that’s what your clients are hiring you to do – tell their story.

All of you are looking for ways to make your work stand out from your competitors. You’re looking for new ideas to exceed client expectations and enhance your storytelling skills. Thanks to technology, video is easier than ever to capture, and it’s also never had so much diversity in its purpose, especially with “hybrid” – still images, video clips and great music all put together in one presentation.Continue reading
