February 10 , 2009
Combining your still photography with audio or other media can strengthen your message and your style.
Adding sound to still images to create multimedia features can make for powerful storytelling. It also opens up new opportunities for still photographers who are willing to expand their skill set and embrace new media. In this presentation Paula Lerner will share work and discuss making the transition from shooting stills alone to combining still images with audio to produce multimedia narratives. She will talk about the basics of multimedia as well as show how this medium can be both a profitable business option and an outlet for personal projects.
Paula Lerner is an award-winning photojournalist and commercial photographer whose passion for photographing people has taken her from the Amazon to Afghanistan. Since 1985 she has been commissioned by a wide variety of national and international clients in addition to pursuing her own projects. Her client rooster includes Smithsonian, the washingtonpost.com, Harvard, Children’s Hospital Boston, Boston University and Business Week. Paula has experience in producing major multimedia features for journalistic venues as well as applying the same audio/visual storytelling skills to presentations for businesses and institutions. Although she continues to shoot still assignments, more and more of her time is focused on producing multimedia for both journalistic and commercial clients. She is currently at work on a long term project on women in Kandahar, Afghanistan. More information on Paula and her work is available at http://www.lernerphoto.com.
