Combining photographic images with music to produce an audio-visual show is an excellent way of presenting several pictures taken at a particular event or photographs that have a common theme. On Friday 9th March Dave Stewart of Deepings Camera Club gave a demonstration to members of the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society on the use of ProShow Gold and ProShow Producer software to make audio-visual presentations. As well as outlining the steps involved in creating his presentations he also showed many examples of completed audio-visual shows, covering topics as varied as Northumberland, Rock Concerts and Mermaids. Chairman John Spowart thanked Dave for an entertaining and instructive evening.
