Styling Photography for Social Media
Post yourself with selfie style
Individual image, style, and ultimately personality, are openly promoted and declared in the photos we continuously post on social platforms.
With private blogs and online profiles it is important to bring photographic techniques to a higher level of quality and personalisation, particularly for anyone interested in the fashion, luxury and creative industries. This fun course gives participants the unique opportunity to learn and experiment with basic skills in professional photography while also discovering their own style strengths, artistic flair and talent. By understanding key notions in photography and editing, participants will be more aware about what they are really ‘saying’ about themselves to the world online, and be able to promote themselves with style.
During the 3 weeks, participants will be introduced to different digital photography techniques, indoor and outdoor shooting, key skills in photo retouching and image processing, and be given the opportunity to create a simple photo book of their work. The aim of this short course is to discover the world of photography linked to individual fashion style.
Participants are encouraged to experiment with image and style and to be creative, but they are also taught to think of each project with a clear aesthetic purpose or ‘motivation’ – for example each picture telling a story, or communicating a style. Via a fun and explorative approach to study participants have the opportunity to sharpen their technical and creative skills in photography and expand their own style portfolio or online profiles with a more professional, convincing, and innovative approach in layout, composition and style.
