Member ShowCase

Member ShowCase – January 18

This is the member’s opportunity to present and share their photography with fellow LCC club members..   We will dedicate the entire evening on January 18 to the Member ShowCase .  Your slide shows must be NO LONGER than 4 minutes.    The formats are listed below.  They can be as simple as a Powerpoint slide show with straight cuts to photo or as complex as adding effects and music.    This is not a competition but rather an opportunity to share your images with other like minded photographers.

More Information and software suggestions.

Slide shows can be as easy as slides advancing automatically with music playing or as detailed as transitions, fade in – fade out – swoops and zooms. One of the most popular programs for slide shows is ProShow Gold.  MicroSoft PowerPoint can also be used for automated slide shows.

PechaKucha (Japanese for chit-chat) is a simple presentation format where 20 images are shown, for 20 seconds each.  The images advance automatically and you speak briefly about your images as they advance.  IrfanView is a free software with timing that is ideal for PechaKucka. PowerPoint and Proshow will also be suitable.

Why PechaKucha?

– easy to do

– little production time required

– allows the artist to talk about his/her work in an easy, non stressful way.

– IrfanView is the perfect software to use, it’s FREE. http://www.irfanview.com/

– presentations are quick, concise, and fun for presenters and audience alike.

Members can share pictures of a trip they went on and tell us the story.  Or show a series of themed pictures and tell us how they made or photographed them.

PechaKucha topics are limited only by your interests and imagination – not by your production skills!

Here is a Pecha Kucha about painting with light.
