Inspired by fellow audio journalism blogger and as a travel enthusiast myself I decided to make an audio slideshow about a lovely eco-lodge I stayed at in Jordan a couple of months ago.
Check out my first attempt at an audio slideshow here… Hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think.
Originally written as an online piece for Daisy Green Magazine I had some challenges trying to fit the audio with the photos. I didn’t have photos to fit all of the exact experiences I was describing, such as of the delicious food.
In a written piece it’s not necessary to have a picture for everything described as only a couple make it into the piece. I felt that some images which I did not have, like pictures of the food I was eating, would really have helped to enhance the audio. Taking the right photos would be something I will definitely consider in the future for future audio slideshows.
I’m not sure how well the piece comes off as a piece of travel journalism/review so let me know what you think. Any comments, hints, tips or general feedback much appreciated.
I recorded the audio on my Olympus VN-7800 PC dictaphone and used Windows Movie Maker Live to slot the audio and pictures together which was surprisingly easy to use.
