Slide Shows That Dazzle: Photography – G210737

Creating a slideshow is an art unto itself. We will use the photos you have taken here on the Ranch and turn them into a beautiful story. Combine with music and movement, you will be astonished at what you can create.

Learning the basics is what we will do here. We will learn to make effective images, judiciously choose just the right words and select the perfect music to blend all those threads together to form the perfect tapestry call a slideshow.

Images work in particular ways when they are combined with words and music. These are three message systems working at the same time and in the same place. It’s multi-media. So when we combine music and images with text in slides we have three things to think about. We have tempo, pace and movement to constantly consider.

What do we want to convey to the audience? How do we want them to feel, what do we want them to feel? All of these things will be our mission in this fun and exciting class.

During Covid safety period - single occupancy lodging is the standard
  • During Covid-19 periods, all lodging types will be single occupancy at no additional charge. Of course, you can share a room with a spouse, partner, family or another person that shares your full-time residence. The extra folks that share a room will pay for workshop registration fees and meals.
What is the difference between a room with private bath, a room with semi-private or shared bath, and a room with communal/dorm bath?

Private bath refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy

Private Bath Room: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms. The highest rate tier of Ghost Ranch lodging.

Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two adjoining sleeping rooms. These rooms will only be used as family or group suites, not to be shared by unknown neighbors as in the past.

Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/shower in the lodging building and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.
