Images that Speak Volumes

As my presentation style continues to evolve, I find myself more and more adopting the Presentation Zen style of designing slides where minimalism rules, images act as metaphors, and bullets are rare if non-existent because their as lethal to presentations as real bullets are to life. The challenge becomes either creating or finding those inspirational images for presentations.  As I am a novice photographer, I find myself depending on others’ work in Flickr and thanks to Creative Commons licensing, I can use the images guilt free.  Here are a few images I’ve used recently or will use in the near future – their visual impact speak powerful messages.

I work for Peachpit Press and thought you and your readers might be interested in knowing that Garr Reynolds just released his first online streaming video, Presentation Zen: The Video, where he expands on the ideas presented in his book and blog.
