Art of Public Speaking:
Visuals: FILL 'EM UP
Images and photos are considered art, right? So in the art of public speaking,
when you project on a screen a photo or other image during a public speaking
assignment, fill up the slide, or overhead as much as possible.
This does NOT mean to fill the projection with lots of text!
This tip only applies to images. For example, you take a picture of a
amusing sign hanging on a pole. The sign is only about 18 inches tall. If you
zoom in on the sign so that it fills the frame, it will have a much
greater impact on the audience. Draw them into the screen and make it seem
bigger than life.
As a sample a simple piece of clip art has a completely
different impact and effect when it fills the frame.
When speaking in public, don't forget the impact of your visuals; it is
part of the art of public speaking.
