Fashion Photography Module
Duration: 4 Days / 20 Hours
Requirements: Digital Camera with Manual Exposure Mode
What is the module about?
This hands-on fashion photography module begins with an introduction to the techniques of studio photography: use of studio equipment, basic studio lighting techniques as well as characteristics of different light shapers. This knowledge is then applied to standard fashion lighting styles that can be combined in multiple ways to create an individual visual language.
The studio is reinvented for every shoot and this is particularly true for Fashion Photography. Excellent preparation and a clear plan of the goals and visual language is essential. After introducing key Fashion Photographers and how to create a Fashion Mood Board, the fashion photography module leads to a full scale shoot on the last day that involves a team of models, stylists and hair/make-up artists.
