10 rules of photo composition (and why they work) | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

 

n photography, it’s not just what you shoot that counts – the way that you shoot it is crucial, too. Poor photo composition can make a fantastic subject dull, but a well-set scene can create a wonderful image from the most ordinary of situations.

 

With that in mind, we’ve picked our top 10 photo composition ‘rules’ to show you how to transform your images.

Nando Castellanos's curator insight, May 15, 1:09 PM
Nowadays, we find that videos are used, and indeed useful, for many purposes, like for instance, marketing, propaganda, music, among others. But what concerns us is to know that videos have taken a very important role in education. We use videos to present a class, to engage students, to give examples, to give information, to entertain students, as listening activities, etc. Therefore, I consider that this article is very helpful since sometimes it becomes hard to find background music for the videos we create. This article establishes how important videos have became last years, and then, it presents 10 recommendable web sites to get background music for our videos.

What a great pitch deck that follows the structure of a story!

 

We've known for quite awhile that when pitching your company to funders, you've got to tell your story -- of the problem, solution, your biz plan, benefits, etc.

 

But how do you put it all together using narrative structure? Well, here's your easy to follow guide. After reviewing dozens of these over the years, this one will definitely work for you and bring in those bucks (as long as your product, solution, benefits are spot on).

 

Happy fundraising...

Want To Be Happier And More Successful? Learn To Like Other People | Fast Company | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

Self-help advice isn’t exactly in short supply. There are research-backed tips out there for boosting confidence, resilience, risk taking, and adaptability. The message is pretty clear: Feel better about yourself or change your beliefs about what you’re capable of, and you’ll excel. Indeed, ample scientific evidence supports each of these claims.

Nevertheless, most self-improvement strategies focus too much on the person who’s trying to do the improving. Much of the time, the same outcomes you’re trying to achieve by changing your own habits, attitudes, and behaviors depend on how you view other people.

The User's Manual To Design Thinking Your Teaching (Infographic)

The User's Manual To Design Thinking Your Teaching (Infographic) | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
What I love about Design Thinking is that it's flexible. There are teaching approaches out there that tell us what to do, but it makes more sense for every teacher to teach differently every year, because we each get different students.
Think about it. We don't treat all our friends and family the same. Our interactions with them are largely based on our experience of who they are and what makes them tick. Teaching is the same way. One size fits all approaches do not work.

The challenge is that, in the grand scheme of things, we only know our students for a short time. However, personalization of education is not a fad; it's a thing. So. let's use the Design Thinking Cycle (Empathy, Definition, Ideation, Prototyping, Testing) to improve Teaching, shall we?

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

Teddy Roosevelt did it. Harry Truman did it. Want to be an outstanding leader? Keep a leadership journal. As part of my executive coaching work, one of the most effective tools I recommend that powers up the coaching process is a leadership journal.  The exercise of leadership is not unlike a sport you play. When you review your actions in the field you learn what worked, what didn’t, and adjust along the way. Leadership guru Peter Drucker said: “ Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. ”
