Front Cover: Photo I decided to use… I have used this particular picture as my main image for my front cover. I choose to use this image because it tells the audience a lot about the type of magazine it is just from looking at the main image. This image shows a large amount of seriousness. It represents a famous rapper and song writer called professor green, who Ross (the person I the image) looks a lot alike. It helps show that the target audience is of at a older teenage audience rather than a happy jolly younger generation of teenagers and kids. A placed these two tattoos on the neck of Ross to make it look even more effective and more like professor green. I have also changed the contrast and brightness so that it fits in with the background.
Front Cover: Photos I decided to not use… I decided not to use this particular photo because it shows a lack of masculine compared to the photo I did use. The celebrity my original image is based upon (professor green) is a very series character an this image does not show much seriousness. I decided not to use this particular photo because of the angle in which Ross is stood. His head is also tilted to the side which would not have suited my front cover and its style and layout.
Contents Page: Photos I decided to use… I choose to use this particular photo because Kieran (the guy in the picture) looks a lot like the character I explained and talked about on my contents page, he also has that same style about him. I choose this particular person because yes he is of the same ethnicity as the celebrity he is impersonating but it show that my magazine has a variety of ethnicity. I have placed my photo of Kieran on a background with which shows wealth due to the nice weather which shows he is in a nice warm country and a swimming pool which shows he is rich. I have changed the brightness and contrast to make him blend into the background.
Contents Page: More photos I decided to use… I decide to use this photo as my second image on my contents page, it shows another person on the phone and on my contents page I will make it look as if they are speaking to one another across the world. I changed the brightness and contrast of my photo image so that it would blend into the background.
Contents Page: Photos I decided to not use… I have not used this photo on my contents page for an obvious reason it is slightly blurred. Also the angle he is stood does not reflect the stance and style I was intending to reflect upon. Again this photo is slightly blurry which would not go well in my magazine.
Double Page Spread: Photos I decided to use… I have used this particular photo as my main image on my inside pages. It shows a lot of seriousness with in his facial expression which Ed Sheeran is known for when he sings his songs. He is also at a perfect angel that ha the effect he is looking into a crowd of people. Changing the brightness and contrast of the photo I have given the effect that he is in a darkish place. I have placed a lighting effect on the photo to make it seem as if a spot light I coming down on him showing how series he is.
Double Page Spread: Photos I decided to use… This specific photo I did use in my double page spread but wasn’t my main image. The main reason for using this photo was because it shows the talent of the artist because he not only singing but paying the guitar as well. This cover line was mainly for the image of Ed Sheeran playing the guitar. Here is the little This picture here was section where the used to show the artist images and the from another angle. cover line are put together.
Double Page Spread: Photos I decided not to use… I decided not use this photo for an obvious reason, he as red eye. The angle in which the photo is taken is pretty good because it is though he is looking at a crowd. This photo is very good to be my main double page spread image but unfortunately he is looking in the wrong direction due to the fact I wanted my main image on the left hand side page. If I had of decided to re arrange my double page spread then maybe this photo would have been used.
