Visuals: FILL 'EM UP
As you will learn in your public speaking course using visuals means
finding drawings and pictures to use. You need to project a photo or
other image during your presentation, filling up the slide, or overhead
as much as possible.
This does NOT mean you should fill the projection with lots of text!
This tip is only useful when applied to images. For example, you take
a picture of a funny sign 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
bigger impact on the audience than a picture you took farther back.
The same picture can have a much greater impact on your audience if
you frame it completely. When practicing in your public speaking course,
don't forget the impact of your visuals during your presentation. It
can really help to keep the audience awake.
