  1. 1. Photography Applications April Darrell 1
  2. 2. Advertising and promotion Photography in advertising is used to sell the product, using a lot of special effects to get the best look out of the image to grab the audiences eye. Taking the fiat 500 images: it goes for the more extreme colour (yellow) and links it in with fashion (image on the right) also showing that the target audience for the particular colour or car is for woman. The images for both advertising and promotion tend to be controlled as they like to get the best look for the image. Image of a model, get rid of any blemishes to create a perfect look of the model for the audience to idolise. Car adding shine and extra brightness of colour to get a real new car effect. This can be done on location and in a studio; second image for example is of a promotional image this was done in a studio with a green screen. For both the use of light can be artificial and natural or mixture of them both depending on the situation of the ad. Almost every photo will have post-production. Mainly using Photoshop to edit the image to get the perfect end look image. Advertising is found in almost anywhere, magazines, billboards, TV, back of books, etc… depending on what its target audience is and what they are advertising depends on where the advertising is found. Whether its fashion, cars, TV programmes, bands, sports etc.. Also if its on a billboard or posters depends on the area and what its close to so if its near a cinema might be worth to put an image up of an up and coming movie or what type of people live around this area. Angus McBean1904 – 1990 was a Welsh photographer who enjoyed surrealist photography and was one of the most influential and famous portrait photographers of the 20th century. He is particularly well known for his work photographing Vivien Leigh and the The Beatles‟ first album cover. Not many photographers can add that claim to their name! McBean also took portraits of other high-profile celebrities of his time including Agatha Christie, Audrey Hepburn and Noel Coward.
  3. 3. Corinne Day 1962 – 2010 Corinne Day was a fashion and documentary photographer acclaimed for bringing a „hard-edged‟ documentary look to fashion photography and was at the forefront of the „grunge‟ style in the 1990s. Corinne sadly passed away from a brain tumor last year. 3
  4. 4. Use this slide to annotate an archetype image Masculine and feminine. What‟s the idealist beauty for men and women. Woman: long hair, a lot of makeup, jaw line, lips, cheek bones etc… Lighting used to light up areas more than others, in a studio to keep control of the light. Artificial lighting. Post-production: Get rid of blemishes (spots, freckles etc..) and to add any extra detail. They‟ve made the skin colour almost the same colour as the perfume bottle.
  5. 5. Fashion Fashion photography is a type of photography that is devoted to show different types of fashion products, such as clothing, makeup, accessories… Fashion photography is for advertising fashion magazines (vogue, Elle, company.) or on fashion websites (topshop, misguided, miss Selfridge, new look.) All the photos for fashion are controlled to make sure the whole body structure and features are at there best again getting rid of any blemishes as these are images that are what the audience are going to idolise and also make them buy the product more. The black and white photo at the top would be in a studio under controlled artificial lighting. It would have been in its normal colour but then edited afterwards into black and white to go with the theme. Fashion photos can be in a studio or on location depending on the situation. All three of these photos here that I have picked are done in a studio. They mostly will use a studio for this as they can control the lighting better and can change the back ground if needed when comes to editing afterwards. Post-production is used in every fashion photos as they are normally heavily edited. Bottom photo for example; could of got rid of some blemishes that was on the girls face to begin with. They could of also brightened up the flower. They could also reshape the face to get it to look like what perfect is meant to look like. This is done on photo shop.

A portrait of a person or persons is there to show personality, mood and expression on the persons face. Many genres use this type of photography- its used a lot in fashion and in magazines. Authors in their books tend to have portraits of themselves in the front or back to show themselves to their readers. Portraiture is the most commonly used type of photography, as people use it on everyday life, on face book for profile pictures and for people on their portfolio. Many families like to go to professional photographers to go get a family portrait done that they display in their family home. Post-production can be done on the images depending on the situation.

  13. 13. Illustration Illustration photography is still of a real life image. But the image is there to illustrate what the book is going to contain or step by step images of how to do something e.g fixing a car. So the image upholds a story of its own. The photos are always next to a piece of text. Illustration images are normally a front cover of a book or inside the book and in news papers next to the story its illustrating for. The images are normally natural images that are their original self meaning no post-production is needed unless the back ground wants to be cut out and the light would be natural with maybe the use of a flash gun.

  15. 15. Architectural Architecture is photos of buildings of something of a similar structure. These photos are taken for architects, surveyors, building companies, sellers, artistic reasons etc… The use of lenses and equipment depends of the situation and the use of the image at end this is the same for post-production. Photo taken for a selling reason wouldn‟t use any post-production as the photos need to be of how it really looks. Architects may use some production on it and better equipment to get the best look of the image to show to potential business partners and the same goes for building companies and surveyors. People who do it for artistic reason may do also sorts with the production side of things as it could be a piece of art they might sell. An example of anyone talking an architectural photo is the Disney princess castle as anyone would take a photo of that for memory reason or historical reasons. Images of building can be found in many things, as it could be used to advertise a hotel, selling a building in a newspaper or online, holiday resort or leaflet of a place.

They quality of the camera and equipment are a lot more higher than what people would have at home. The use of green screen for different backgrounds meaning they can choose or have any background they want something else people wouldn‟t have at home. High street photographers take their photos in a studio, depending on the company and how well they are doing depends on whether it‟s a town studio or a home one due to renting costs. They can take photos on location if its for a special event or wedding. Majority of photos are done in a studio.

The images are there to tell a story, but rather than with one single image its with multiple images. The images aren't staged they are taken from something that‟s really happening at the time, the most staged it would get is getting a group of people together (for advertisement) showing that they are suffering together and they are all the same.
