Studying abroad can be seen as synonym for ‘making memories of a lifetime’. Everyday a new adventure, a new story, a new memory – How are you supposed to capture & remember all of it?
There are many, many different possibilities to capture, share and remember our stay abroad. Ever thought about making an after movie? Or starting your own travel blog? The PR committee gives a workshop about different practices on March 20, including video editing and photography tips, Instagram hacks and blogging tricks. That’s an event you really don’t want to miss out on! Check out the Facebook event here.
Here’s a little sneak preview of what you can expect!
Capture your stay with stunning pictures
Do you want to take awesome pictures with your phone or camera? Chovan, the PR committee photographer, will share some of his photography hacks with you. If terms such as ISO, shutter speed or aperture seem like rocket science to you, this part of the workshop will come in handy!
But that’s not all! Paula, the PR committee very own Instagram master, will tell you everything about how to share your pictures successfully on social media. What makes your feed stand out? How does the story function work? What is necessary to become ‘Instagram famous’? Paula knows it all!
Share your experiences on a blog
Starting a blog can be quite overwhelming. Which platform is the best? What domain name should you chose? About what exactly should you blog? And how can you improve the ranking of your blog online? I, the PR committee’s writer, will walk you through the basic steps of setting up your WordPress blog as well as present some of my tips and tricks how to maintain it. Trust me, writing is one of the best ways of remembering your travels!
Are you more the old-school travel diary type? We’ve got you covered! Floris, the PR designer, is going to share some scrap booking and diary hacks with you. We will also bring our own travel diaries to provide you with some inspiration.
Remember your stay with an awesome ‘After Movie’
Having an awesome after movie of your year abroad is THE coolest way of remembering your stay. However, video editing tools such as iMovie or Adobe programs can be quite overpowering. I personally have no idea how to use them and am looking forward the crash course of my fellow committee members Lynn and Valerie! This part of the workshop is all about hands-on experiences. You will have the opportunity to try out the programs and ask questions. Who knows, maybe you end up becoming the new Steven Spielberg (or the female version of him).
Here’s the after movie of this year’s orientation day, made by Lynn!
