Short Description:

The course deals with advertising photography both from a theoretical as well as a practical point of view. The course aims to understanding light's quality and handling (natural as well as artificial through a variety of lighting equipment) in order to create professional quality portraits and product shots (carton, ceramic, glass, metal) in different light conditions. Moreover, it presents the work of significant photographers on the field and introduces theoretical approaches to the advertising phenomenon in general. The student is expected to elaborate a personal advertisement project of his choice throughout the semester
