GAT-251 - Advertising Photography

An advanced photography course requiring students to produce images that command the viewer's attention. The student will develop strong artistic and technical visual problem-solving abilities, primarily in a studio environment, but several carefully-controlled on-location projects are assigned. Product photography, fashion photography, food photography, and editorial photography will be emphasized. In addition, photography students work closely with STCC's Cosmetology program, photographing professionally-styled models. Additional course emphasis will be on client communication, professional business practices, and publication design. The student will produce an advertising piece using his/her own photographic and graphic design skills. Critiques are held to provide the student feedback regarding his/her work.
