Take Impactful Photos for Digital Marketing

Introduction

When it comes to raw assets for digital marketing campaigns, pictures are worth a thousand words. The right photo catches the eye of prospective customers and greatly enhances the appeal of a product or service. A good photograph has limitless potential and can be used on any platform from social media advertisements to website banners and more.

You don’t have to own a professional camera or need a studio environment to take impactful photos. In fact, technology has advanced so far that with our smartphone cameras, environmental lighting tweaks and even in-app photo editors — you’ll be able to take stunning images capable of converting customers and raising the perception of your company’s quality.

In this 2 day course, you’ll learn about different photography styles, shot composition techniques and their pros and cons with regards to digital marketing. There will also be a hands-on session where you can better understand the manual settings on your smartphone camera, and how to best manipulate them to get the results you want.

All our courses are conducted by experienced industry practitioners. You can be sure that they will engage you with interesting class activities such as group discussions, presentations, brainstorming sessions, case study discussions, demonstrations and practical hands-on activities.
