Today we were given our commercial assignment. The aim of this brief is to make any number of photographs based around two subjects in terms of commercial photography. We must create either a small portfolio of images for a product of our choice or create a small portfolio of art photography that could be potentially sold in a gallery.
I like the idea of both portfolio’s, but I think I will most likely go with a product portfolio. As much as I like the idea of an art installation, product is the most common form of commercial photography and the easiest to break into in terms of a career. For this assignment I will research different techniques and styles for product photography. I want to aim at a very high standard and produce work that could be considered for advertising.
