Introduction to Photography & Art Direction
Whether you are completely new to this medium or already a hobby photographer, this course could be for you. It aims to develop skills in understanding the basic elements of an art-directed product photograph, then applying these techniques and concepts to create more visually refined images in everyday situations. You will be introduced to manipulating available light, visualising and planning images, and composing for impact and meaning.
The course is a combination of classroom theory, practical workshops in the group format and independent research. These will culminate in a small electronic portfolio and solid advice for furthering your practice, whether you photograph for commercial or personal reasons.
You may utilise whichever type of digital camera is available to you.
- Exposure and available light
- Composition and the elements and principles of design
- Hands-on practice with tabletop set-ups
