Course contents

Seminar: Laboratory of technique and photographic workflow

Tutor: Mattia Candiotti


In the seminar we will begin to understand basics and then the knowledge of the professional camera, the use of lights on set, the workflow and photographic post-production.

We will see the process of building a professional/commercial photographic image: concept, plan, shooting and post-production.

Our goal is to provide the tools to understand how a shooting is planned and carried out and what collaboration and support with the photographer is, especially in the fashion context.

The course will analyze contemporary photography with particular attention to fashion, focusing on the different types of photographic images currently required by the industry: from technical shots of garments and accessories, to images for shops and look-books, increasingly coinciding, up to the social media and campaign advertising images.

Technical topics:

photographic technique






The introductory theoretical part will be carried out through slides (ppt) and real-time research on the various topics covered, for which the active participation of students will be required.
