Pecha Kucha Night Scranton

Some shameless self-promotion – I’ll be presenting at Pecha Kucha Scranton on Saturday, January 28th. If you haven’t heard of Pecha Kucha before (and I certainly hadn’t), it’s a series of presentations, each exactly six minutes & forty seconds in length and composed of 20 slides. Think TED, but rapid-fire. The Scranton event will include a number of local artists and professionals including yours truly.

My presentation is entitled “In Pursuit of Light,” and will focus on the essential, and generally overlooked, importance of light in photography. At least it will, once I finish it. (For those of you who aren’t able to attend the event, I’ll be posting it here afterwards.)

Pecha Kucha Scranton will run from 7:30 to 9:30 pm at The Vintage Theater in Scranton. You can check out the event’s Facebook page at: Pecha Kucha Scranton.

Just don’t ask me how to pronounce it…I still haven’t figured that out.

  1. Good luck. I did a little math because 20 slides in 6:40 seems like a lot of information to present in a short period of time. 6:40 = 400 seconds which means you need to change slides every 20 seconds. That’s not a lot of time to focus on any one topic.

      Yep, the slides actually have to be set to automatically change ever 20 seconds. Part of the rules for the presentation. So they have to be very light on text; mine will (mostly) be just images, and my presentation will refer to them in a general fashion as I go. It should be interesting, to say the least.

  2. Brent, here’s a bit of help on pronounciation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdghID66kLs. Can’t wait to see the presentation! Brad
