Communications and Marketing


Detail shots can help emphasize the feeling of a composition, from candid and casual to tightly controlled and art-directed. They can be in-the-moment scenes or shot in a studio. They can be used to showcase just about anything, from research and art projects to the beauty of our campus.

Detail photos are often closely cropped, with a short depth of field (focused object in foreground, blurry background), but they can also be wide-angle shots without a particular point of focus. With too many detail shots, a composition can become busy and unfocused, so use them primarily as accent or secondary images.

Accessible Photos

Images must be accessible to those with low vision and those using assistive technology. To make your images accessible, follow the university's alternative text guidelines.
