This subject deals with the notions of the 'fabricated' image under the guise of editorial portraiture, fashion and advertising photography. The conscious manipulation of existing spaces, places and subjects to achieve a pre-planned outcome is explored. Students are introduced to colour photography, medium-format camera use, portable artificial lighting, advanced available lighting techniques and the conversion of images from the analogue realm to the digital.
