Marcio nice video and perhaps for your next one locate some relaxing music as your photos come across more in the meditative state of mind.

Marcio, I really liked it and the dramatic music. Also, your developing film video is such a kick. Great job on both!!

I've also had success with my videos on YouTube:

Or you can log into YouTube and type in The Photography of Mike Nellums, and all 5 videos should come up.

Congrats to you, very nice for first you tube video! Also are you able to put the link of FAA on your work? I did not notice that.....

I think it's a beautiful video, Marcio -- great images, nice font choice, and I like the opening slide of the couple viewing your framed, hanging, photograph. I also like that you kept the production short, like a TV commercial or film trailer. Good stuff.

I really like the music choice, too, as your work seems more dramatic than meditative, to me.

You should add a link (or links) to the description section under your video, making sure at least one link is above the fold, so a viewer doesn't have to click 'Show More' to find it. You might also add requests to subscribe to your videos and join your mailing list, and a copyright notice for your images.

I've found videos to be a wonderful marketing tool and have had several sales, just this year, coming directly from YouTube viewers. I'm committed to posting videos more frequently, and plan to add at least one or two new vids each month to my channel -- also adding them to my blog and Twitter, FB, etc.

Good luck, Marcio! :-)

I choose a more fast song to make the video more dynamic. I may try a relaxing song next.

Thank you Patricia.

I like your videos Mike, but it seems the 2 first videos are off.

I have only the address for my main website. In my website, in the prints page, there is a link to my works in FAA.

Thank you for the advises. I will try to make more videos. At least one a month.

I will see how it works for me. :)

Great discussion!

I've been looking at starting to do more videos for my photography work. Thinking of doing a general "TV spot" kind of general video. Also want to do a handful of videos on individual pieces or "collections" where I talk about the pieces, where they were shot, the experience of taking them, etc.

Audio/video is my main "wheelhouse," so I thought it would open my stuff up to another audience and YouTube, which is the second largest search engine in the world. Why not, right?

Anyone have suggestions on where to find good background music? I had been using mainly for creative commons music.

@Debra .. watched your video, and your work is gorgeous!

@ Shutter -- Some royalty-free music options:

Searching YouTube or Google will turn up even more, but this is a good start. They all require credit -- you'll find the details on each site. :-)

There were many things to like about your video and some of these were already mentioned above, namely the nice short length (as Wendy mentioned - "like a TV commercial or film trailer". I liked the selection of music as well. Very "tentative", which lends itself to the anticipation of each coming slide.

It may seem like a small thing but at the very end, your music ended rather abruptly rather than fading out softly like your images. All the best with your video production! A collection of mine can be found here...

You may also want to consider producing a slide show using "Power Point". In my opinion, Power Point is one of the most underrated tools available. The finished file is much smaller and easier to send through email and internet than video. You can basically have music and a variety of transition selections just as you would with video. You can have links, and animation and can even embed video if you desire. I have mentioned this on several occasions in different threads related to this subject which so far has fallen on deaf ears. In fact it usually ends a thread with no further remarks or posts being made. (Don't ask me why).

One popular site for sharing Power Point slide presentations is ""

I was looking at a video on YouTube yesterday and kind of thinking it looked familiar (images of a religious grotto) when I said, "oh, hey, that's my video that I did about 2 years ago."
I do so much photography I had forgotten about that short video!

Finally had the opportunity to put together my "image" video. Still working on doing a series of vids on individual pieces from my catalog.

Well done Marcio!


Posted by: Marcio Faustino on 04/27/2013 - 5:37 AM

I could not help my self to make an other one. I enjoy making videos rs. :)

Nice work. This thread inspired me to finally make another youtube vid too with some old and new work.


Posted by: Marcio Faustino on 04/27/2013 - 1:38 PM

Very good Philip!
