  17. 17. Why do photo galleries?<br />Increase page views<br />Communicate in new ways with audiences<br />Showcase pictures that you couldn’t in print<br />
  18. 18. Choosing your theme<br />Should be a topic of interest to your audience<br />Should be something that you can illustrate with photos<br />Should NOT be a topic you have already used (no repeats of podcast topics)<br />Think about a strategy: <br />Day in the life<br />Top 10 list<br />Ideas for doing something<br />A “how to” guide<br />
  19. 19. Getting the photos<br />Pick your theme FIRST<br />Contact sources who might have ideas<br />Go to an event that may help you illustrate your theme<br />DO NOT pose pictures; subjects must be acting naturally<br />
  20. 20. Captions<br />Should give identifying information<br />First & last name<br />Ages<br />Other info (hometown, major, year, etc.)<br />Should include a description of what is happening in the picture and/or how the subject in the picture relates to your theme<br />Don’t need to identify people when there are more than 3 in the shot<br />No more than 2-3 lines <br />Good grammar, AP Style, spelling<br />
  21. 21. Gallery specifics <br />You must use your own photos<br />Photos should reflect a theme<br />All photos should feature detailed captions<br />Galleries should contain 8-12 photos<br />Photos should adhere to good photography principles included in the virtual lecture and photo field trip<br />Take photos all horizontally – varying them up will look weird in Soundslides<br />
