Do you have a mountain of old photographs that you would like to display at your event? Maybe you just need to add some visual pizzazz to an otherwise dry subject matter. Whatever your event, slide shows are an entertaining way to display your material. Slide shows can creatively showcase your photos for all of your traditional gatherings:
Weddings Receptions – Include pictures of both the bride and group separately and together. It can even be interesting to use old pictures going all the way back to when the happy couple were babies. This helps to create a nice sense of nostalgia.
Graduation Parties – Pictures of the graduate throughout life and including the present. You can also use notes, newspaper clippings, and pictures out of baby books and scrapbooks to highlight memorable moments in the graduate’s life.
Birthday Celebrations – Again, include pictures from all stages of the person’s life. Be sure to include pictures from previous birthday parties and especially any hospital pictures from the day they were born.
Funerals and Memorial Services – Include pictures of the deceased though all stages of life, as well as with friends and family. Be sure to include memorable events such as weddings, birthdays, graduations, and awards. If you don’t have a lot of pictures of some of these events, consider using paper documentation such as a marriage license, diploma, or other such memorabilia.
Slide shows can also make a great addition to less traditional gatherings.
Corporate Events – For business events such as holiday parties and annual gatherings, include pictures from early in the company’s history such as news articles or construction pictures. Also, be sure to include pictures from previous business parties and even candid photos of employees going about their day at work.
School Presentations – When presenting to a class as a guest teacher or speaker, slide shows can be a fantastic visual aid to keep the audience’s attention and freshen up an otherwise dry subject.
Conventions – Consider a slideshow presentation at events like college fairs, craft shows, and other events where you are vying attention. A carefully put together slide show creates eye-catching visual appeal and helps grab and keep the attention of attendees. It also helps keep visitors at your booth for longer, giving you a change to make a personal impression with more people.
There are many computer software programs available to help you develop your slideshow. However, it may be a good idea to enlist the help of a professional to design your slideshow for your event. Whether you’re new to making slideshows, you don’t have the time available to invest, or you want to make sure your presentation looks great, a professional can help you to design an amazing slideshow with tantalizing transitions, magical music, and super special effects to help you create just the right feel.
