School Magazine Cover Shots !
This is a medium shot which would be suitable for a school front cover. On the image the children are taking part in a school activity, in a happy and energetic way. This can be seen through the happy facial expression on the children's faces. The body language of the students is very happy, they are waving their hands up in the air which is suggesting they want to take part in school and they find it a fully and fun event in their day. This shows that they like been educated and furthermore the children's work is colourful and bright which shows their education is fun packed. This could work well as a cover shot as it shows children enjoying to school to the maximum. The children are wearing school uniform which is what a cover shot for a school magazine needs. Their uniform is well presented and their tie and top button are done correctly which suggests that the school is very tidy and respectable. And could further show that the children respect the school rules which could show they enjoy school life enough to stick to the rules.
This is a medium shot which was generate from a extreme long shot. This shot would work a lot better if all the scenes behind could be removed. The boy in the shot has very happy facial expressions which could show he finds going to school fun. The boy is also giving direct eye contact to the viewer which could show the reader he really does enjoy school and he is not afraid to show it. The boy isn’t wearing a school uniform which could show that the school is more relaxed which is why he enjoys his education so much. However the boy is carrying many folders and books which could show is education is very good and filled with exciting new learning experiences. This could further link to why his facial expressions are so happy. The boy is also holding on to his books close to his chest which could suggest his education means a lot him and he holds it very close to his heart. The boy also has a back pack bag on as well as holding his books and folders which shows how packed his education is that it over flows out of his back pack.
This is a medium shot of a group of children. The children have a very happy and mischievous facial expression which could show they are very cheeky at school. In the background of the children is a beach scene which shows there school is different to any others as it is by the beach. All the children are close together which also shows how friend ships build up together through out school . However I believe to have a large group of children on the front like this would mean that other things such as subheadings would have to be removed so the cover was not to busy. So therefore I believe this type of shot should not be used for a front cover.
This is a medium shot of an individual child. This shot offers humour to the parents and students viewing the magazine. By the child been asleep at her school desk shows how trying school can be for young pupils. I believe this shot works better than a group shot as the student can be seen clear and it allows room on the cover for subheadings and mastheads which are key to making a successful magazine. The girl sleeping at her desk could also suggest that she finds school boring which is why she falls asleep. I believe this shot would work well within the magazine alongside a story or on a news page, however I believe it is not appropriate for a front cover shot.
This is a medium shot of a group of young students. The students are wearing their normal school uniform as well as a yellow safety hat, I believe this shows the different and variety of activities the students gain from their education. And the very happy and smiley facial expressions show how much they enjoy taking part and learning new skills. The students are also holding clip boards and pens as well as wearing their safety helmets makes the children seem more grown up which could suggest that school helps children to grow and provides them with the skills and learning they need in order to gain success in future life. The children are close grouped together which shows there friendship bonds are very strong and school friendships last forever. However I believe that this shot would not work successfully as a front cover shot and would perhaps be better placed with in the magazine alongside a strong double spread story.
