Advertising photography – for the best customers´attention
When it comes to your business, image should be one of the top priorities. A customer’s first impression will almost exclusively be based on what they see, not what you say.

Unlike many other photography niches, advertising photography is fairly broad in its reach. The subjects may be either living, inanimate, or both. The scenarios might be static or active. Every type of shot will be considered and, depending on the advertising campaign, utilized. It is the advertising photographer’s job to not only understand the art of photography from an holistic perspective in terms of technical knowledge and image composition but to engage with the client as a partner and collaborator. All too often, photographic shoots require the photographer to determine nearly every aspect of the image and direct the shoot with a strong authoritarian hand. However, advertising photography requires as much teamwork and communication skills as it does technical knowhow.
Three Steps for an advertising photographer
An advertising photographer has two primary jobs in regards to image development: to identify the image that best suits the desired advertising campaign and to ensure that all aspects of the image’s composition coalesce to form a gestalt that defines the message without deviation. As alluded to prior, the third job of an advertising photographer is to work with the client to ensure that agreement on expectations and requirements for satisfaction of the first two jobs is clearly understood by all parties involved. In the course of crafting an image for an advertising campaign, the specific product being advertised will help determine much of the image’s angle of approach.
Goods will almost always be included, while services and ideas may be more obliquely referenced. However, services and ideas often offer more creative means of expression and can provide images that catch the eye more readily. Regardless, an effective advertising photographer will present numerous ideas and different angles of approach. During the photo shoot, the photographer will keep an eye towards the editing process where she will utilize various forms of image manipulation to make the image pop. These manipulations may be in the moment by utilizing filters or other technical approaches, but often, the bulk of image manipulation will occur after the fact with the aid of software like Photoshop.
