This image was taken at a skatepark, on a half pipe
and was originally going to be used as the image
for my double page spread however on review I
think it would be better off as the front cover
image as it is eye catching and breaking the rules
and therefore similar to the format in kerrang.
This image has had no effects added and simply
the background removed however if I do use this
as a cover page image I will most likely either add
colour to the background or a different
background to create a more eye catching image.
I think this image has a lot of story behind
it, I believe the frustration on the models
face illustrates the idea that todays

use some more depth.
I originally took this image to be used as a
possible double page spread to represent
the punk rock fight against the social norm.
I edited the image using the water colour
affect as well as adjusting the brightness
and contrast of the images.
However on review I have decided not to
include it within my magazine as I believe
the image itself wouldn’t fit the idea.
This image is fairly simple and doesn’t
have much depth due to the camera
used. However with the addition of the
‘Dark Strokes’ filter. This filter added
depth and colour to the image as well as
enhancing the colour contrast.
I also changed the colour of her eyes
from a light blue/green to a crimson red.
I intend on using this image as a poster
image for the magazine as I think the
editorial effects have made it more of a
poster image than that of a front cover or
double page spread.
