In this unit, students are shown how the Photographic Studio is a constructed and stylised space separate from the external found world. The studio offers a potential for synthetic visualization plus an element of experiential and professional practice not found in other units. From its origins of portrait painting, through the post-war period of creative advertising and arriving in the contemporary tableau and psycho-dramatic style, studio photography is a technical and artistic discipline for students with professional and creative aspirations.
Topics in this unit include:
- The conventions of the portrait: formal, informal, experimental, and nude
- Lighting set-ups
- Lens and camera choice
- Still-life and table-top techniques
- Tableau and constructed space
- The found studio
- Genre recreation
