Book descriptionJohn Child has refreshed and updated his inspirational studio photography guide to cover all the latest techniques. Now beautifully illustrated in full colour, featuring brand new student and author work, Studio Photography guides you through the techniques you need to create successful studio images.
Through a clearly structured learning approach, you will stimulate and express your creative ideas using a wide variety of activities and assignments. With a strong commercial orientation, the emphasis is highly practical and focuses on technique, communication and design within the genres of still life, advertising illustration, portraiture and fashion.
This successful guide is an essential tool for those working in a controlled environment where the image output is to film or digital file. You are encouraged to experiment whether you have expensive equipment, or are using natural light sources; either way you will see how it is possible to achieve acceptable results and develop your skills.
