Advertising photography has been an indispensible tool of modern capitalist societies, where there is a need to sell ideas and services. While the images contrived may have been fraudulent, viewers are suspended in disbelief while still being aware that the scene has been arranged. As the advertising photography evolved in the changing times, it became the platform to convey the joys and benefits of consumerism.
For those who have overflowing creative juices, you will benefit from working in advertising agencies, or for magazine editors who will need artistic photos as selling tools. For this, you will not only need a good camera but other paraphernalia as well like an umbrella, a good lighting, etc.
