If a picture is worth a thousand words, Steve McCurry’s work speaks volumes. With a career that has spanned more than 30 years, McCurry is widely considered one of the icons of contemporary photography. The galleries on his website are well worth a visit.
The Cooperative of Photography recently created the short video below in which McCurry shares nine tips for good photo composition. These tips are just as valuable when it comes to incorporating photographs into a Keynote or PowerPoint slide presentation.
One of the best known rules of photography is the “Rule of Thirds”. I teach it in my extended workshops, and it is the first tip covered in the video. But there are eight other great ideas, some of which were new to me.
You certainly do not need a photograph on every slide in your presentation. But many slide presentations could benefit from a well-placed photograph or two. If you decide to use photographs in your presentations, McCurry’s tips might just come in handy.
