    • 1. Wisdom on Creating Audio Photo Galleries– From Those Who’ve Done THEM How to converge audio and visual!
    • 2. REALITY • Newspapers can no longer work on a story and only “think visually.” • They must think “aurally” • The audio slideshow caters to newspaper readers consuming content online • The audio slideshow creates a place for multiple images of a story to be shared.
    • 3. Old vs. New? Figure New York Newsday front page published July 20, 2013. SINGLE PHOTO PHOTO GALLERY
    • 4. Creating an audio slideshow • BEFORE YOU START – Check out these examples so you can get an idea of what one looks like. • www.seacoastonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article? AID=/20070702/PHOTOS04/70702005/-1/PHOTOS • www.ncsu.edu/sma/staff/photostaffmanuel/photopage.htm • http://mindymcadams.com/guest/diversity1/Priddy_Slideshows_v1d ot2.pdf • PLAN, PLAN, PLAN – Select a topic full emotion – Think about the beginning, middle and end – Doing a quality audio slideshow requires planning and preparation
    • 5. Gather audio BEFORE or AFTER shooting pictures? “After is best for me. By then, I have a better sense of what the story really is.. Getting THE best storytelling image is and should still be the most important task. About the time I would normally say goodbye (after shooting a single image), I pull out the recorder for the interview.” Richard Koci Hernandez Former Deputy Director of Photography and Multimedia San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News
    • 6. Creating an audio slideshow • Key steps 1. 2. 3. Pick a topic (try and pick a topic that will let you easily show emotion) Shoot! (Get all angles and types of shots… especially detail shots) Retrieve the audio. (You want to get a combination of background noise and you also want to interview several people about your topic)
    • 7. “I always look through the photos first and then edit the audio. The photos will give you an idea of how the sound needs to flow and will give you a good idea of what to leave in and take out of the audio. If your audio is focused on something you have no photos to show, then you will have a problem. Once I have an idea of the available photos, I edit the audio.” Tom Priddy Online Producer Spartanburg (SC) Herald-Journal
    • 8. Creating an audio slideshow • After you get your images, edit them and think about how you want them arranged. – Try and get audio that will go along with what the photos are about. (EX. You pick the girls varsity soccer team as your subject, while showing a picture of the coach have audio of the coach talking) REMEMBER - It will take several shoots to get all the images required. It will take more than one interview, you must get many so that the reader gets involved.
    • 9. EDITING PHOTOS: 4-step process 1. CULL- Discard photos that are not very good, marginal shots are best deleted 2. CROP- Follow basic composition rules (i.e. Rule of thirds) eliminate distractions or extraneous material 3. Color Correct – Check images for any issues with exposure, avoid making drastic changes (if drastic changes needed, don’t use the photo) 4. SAVE edited images
    • 10. • AUDIO EDITING - Editing in Garage Band… Choose your best soundbites or edit together your best narration track – KEY #1: Take the least amount of audio you can. – KEY #2: The smaller amount of audio, the shorter the time to edit it – KEY #3: Keep the final product between 1:30 to 2:30 (2 mins. Is ideal) “Any more than 2 minutes, 30 sec. and I think it gets boring” - BEFORE “SPLIT” Gerry McCarthy Staff photographer The Dallas Morning News AFTER “SPLIT”
    • 11. • • • FIGURE OUT number of slides you need based on how long your audio track is. Suggestion: 2 minutes of audio (120 seconds), if each image is displayed for FIVE SECONDS= 24 images needed - Put your slides in order and match them up with the sound and audio
