In Flight with FotoMagico

When Vancouver-based Jack Pickell retired after 45+ years in the business world, he was relieved to find that he had plenty of time to pursue his passion – photography. Pursuing this hobby for the past 15 years has only enhanced his keen eye for naturally beautiful landscapes. He now showcases all of his beautiful work using FotoMagico.

“My photography has taught me not to just look at the world around me but to truly see the world in all its beauty,” says Jack. “I have tried to capture that beauty with my images.”

Though Jack appreciates different types of photography, his focus remains on nature and landscapes. This doesn’t mean he shoots exclusively landscapes, however! For Jack’s first slideshow with FotoMagico, he chose to feature another of his firsts, photos of aircraft in flight.

“I love the high quality of the FotoMagico slide show when I use smooth and seamless transitions such as, fade, pan and zoom,” says Jack. “I also love the ability to easily add music. The ease of use is probably the biggest benefit of using FotoMagico.”

Since this was Jack’s first experience with putting his photos into a slideshow, it was incredibly helpful to have an easy to follow, straightforward workflow that still provided professional results.

Additionally, Jack is a member of the Pacific Digital Photography Club, an organization that strives to provide its members with a unique learning environment. Each November, PDPC produces “Photomotion,” a compilation of members’ digital slideshows, many of which are produced with FotoMagico.

After using the program, Jack says that he is planning on submitting one, if not more slideshows using FotoMagico for consideration at the upcoming November 2016 event. We wish him the best of luck!
