Video is a great way to show people about you, your business, and more. In this short video I have some simple tips I’d like to share that will help understand the basics of what you need to produce good videos, and also the advantages of posting natively to YouTube and Facebook Live.
I have actually seen some of these types of “photo” over the last few years. When I did I thought it was video in either stop-motion or super slow motion clip. Come to find out it’s a process called Still Photo Animation. There are graphic designers and photographers producing this type of work on a commercial and consumer level all around. The video below features Joe Fellows as he shows and describes the software and techniques he uses when creating his animated photos.
This type of technique could be a great option to add to your portfolio as a photographer if you’re looking for a way to stand out from your competition. It does take some time, but could boost sales and prices for signature work by several hundred dollars. As you watch this video think of that comment below on how you’d add this to your photography services.
Just this morning Bess Auer and I hosted a show on Blab. If you’re not familiar with Blab, it’s a cool new video platform that works with Twitter in the like of Periscope, yet can allow for up to four people to be shown “Brady Bunch” style at once. My first time being on a Blab was with Bess the week of Florida Blog Con. We got on there to talk about the upcoming conference, the speakers, what attendees could expect and more. Viewers are able to sign in via Twitter, and engage with us and others via the chat bar on the right and ask questions, comments, share and more.
Below is a Blab from this morning where we spoke with Joshua Johnson, Dan McGaw, Chef Dennis, and more about how to use Blab, as well as other ways to tell a story about your brand or initiative online. It was a great show and I insist you click play to watch and listen.
Bess and I will be continuing this #BlogTalkTuesday show each Tuesday morning at 10:10AM. Be sure to subscribe here for our next show for October 20th.
There were a couple of nice angles though, and I’ll be trying this more to get a better views like turning around street corners.
