Product Design & Photography/Video
Organizing a product photo shoot can be pretty overwhelming the first time around. But the more you practice, the more things will go smoothly, and soon you will not even think about it but just set up lights and backdrop, shoot, edit, and upload. But before you reach this level of ease, let’s take a look at how to conduct a successful shoot.
The Visual Communications Program has a heavy focus on the traditional drawing, although drawing techniques are discussed and reviewed in class, the majority of class time needs to be used learning software applications and tools that are not readably available at the student home. In most cases colleges still expect to see a minimum of 8 to 10 traditional drawing pieces. Also a final study completed in traditional drawing could takes as long as 8 to 15 hours if not even longer depending on the subject matter and size.
