Photographic Storytelling

Understanding the dynamics of “real-world” photographic assignments from ideation to execution is key in producing top notch projects and satisfied clients. Discover the photographic techniques and strategies necessary to produce more powerful and provocative imagery. This hands-on course covers the various lighting tools available in a photo studio and their usage for desired effect and purpose, camera and lens settings as it relates to end usage - either in B&W or color, as well as editing platforms to ensure proper sizing of projects. Increase your comfort level in taking control in a real job situation by developing the critical thinking and technical skills needed to address the challenges and creative processes of an assignment. “Real-world” class assignments designed to help students develop and refine their ability to conceive, shoot and sequence a compelling photo project are the focus of this course. Methods of presentation and promotion will also be discussed.
