For my front cover I will have a young girl looking into the camera. The girl will be wearing a hudded jacket with fur on the top of her head. The camera lens will be straight in front of her and it will be a close up of her face. I have decided to make this a close up because it will therefore allow the audience to see her whole face. She is pretending to be a famous singer who is a worldwide artist and therefore this will be very affective with having it a close up. The location of this shoot will be in a studio to get that studio light effect- as if the magazine has does this photography specifically for this front cover issue. It makes the magazine seem more respectable towards the celebrity as they are not taking a photo of a paparazzi snap shot to put onto the magazine cover. Therefore, this magazine will show respect and look like as if they have a good relationship with the artist. There will be no prop on the front cover image, however inside the magazine there will be a photo (probably on the contents page) of that girl again wearing sunglasses and holding a electric guitar-this will connote and link with the music magazine and the prop will make it a bit more quirky. This photo will also take part in a photo studio for the same reason as the front cover photograph is.<br />And lastly there is the double page spread photo. This is a bit harder to think of. But I think that I will have an image of the singer and now she will be wearing a leopard jacket and she will be outside. However the position of her is posy therefore the image will show that the magazine company has shot this photo with the artists’ permission. This shot will be a medium shot to allow a bit more nature environment and ambience to be there as well as photo studio lightings and photographs.<br />The reason why I have chosen to have these costumes and shots is because from what I got in my research questionnaire was that most people like to buy fashion magazines before they buy music, therefore to make the magazine a bit more attractive I will have a fashion like style on the front cover and inside the layout and style will be reminded of the fashion magazines, but the actual information and contents will be based on music. This will hopefully therefore make the audience more interested in the music magazines and it will create a bigger niche audience.<br />The whole colour theme and scale of the whole magazine will be based on girly colours to attract them and to make them feel attracted to the front cover and the magazine contents. I will therefore use mostly pinks, blues and purple. Other colours may vary.These texts will be in the colour of light blue and even lighter blue for the small explanation of itContents Page(Mast head and contents page text)Fame Contents Page and FeaturesPhoto of the singer with a guitarCategory titleCategory titleCategory titleCategory titleText of features within that categoryText of features within that categoryText of features within that categoryText of features within that categoryFront Cover(Mast Head)FameClose up of the singer, (this will take up the whole front cover page)Text of some contents that is in the magazineText of some contents that is in the magazineText of some contents that is in the magazineText of some contents that is in the magazineText of some contents that is in the magazineDouble Page Spread (Title of the magazines interview with the singer)Close up of the singer, (this will take up the whole front cover page)Text ( interview questions and answers.)
