We always knew that a picture could speak a thousand words. Ancient man communicated his first stories down the years with cave paintings. Photography brought the possibility of beautiful pictures even to those who didn’t wield a paintbrush. And the digital boom put a camera in every user’s hand. The internet has made it possible to easily edit and showcase those images. Put a frame, change the hair, add a funny hat – voila, you’ve created art!
If you’ve been blogging for awhile, you know that adding a visual component to your text will take your blog up a few notches. But you don’t have to be Michelangelo or a professional photographer to give your content that extra edge. We believe that pictures are the next big thing on the self-publishing frontier. Write Click presents ‘Pic it Up’ a two-day workshop on the creation and showcasing of visual content.
‘Pic it Up’ will explore emerging visual blogging tools like photographs, cartoons and drawing. We will look at how to optimize this medium with everyday easy-to-use tools (digital cameras, mobile phone apps etc). And we will also explore how to integrate these into your current blogging activities in a way that will enhance your content and make it more engaging.
The workshop details are as follows:
