During the first year, the students can handle the basic compositional and expression means of static and dynamic image, its recording and processing. Students will get to know studio photography practice, which includes creation with sensing and lighting technology, basics of post-production, color management and work with professional programs for photo and video processing.

Their role as a photographer in the environment of creative communication is established; the subjects develop students’ creative thinking for instance in the field of advertising, portraiture, illustration of literary work, music video or fashion video, sporting events, architecture, etc. There are also inter-studio projects linked with the area of practice of orders.
