AS Media Evaluation question 6 AS Media Evaluation question 6 Presentation Transcript

  • What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
  • Planning • While producing my media product I had to use a wide variety of equipment and methods in order to produce my magazine . Before producing my magazine I had to look at what equipment I would have to use in order to fully and successfully produce my media product. I also had to develop my skills of using the equipment because if I hadnt I would not have been able to produce a media product of good enough quality.
  • Planning To create my magazine I had to use multiple technologies and software which included the following: -InDesign -Blogger.com -Slideshare.com -Digital Camera -Photoshop -DaFont.com
  • InDesign The main piece of software I had to learn to use was InDesign. This was the main program where I was able to create and design my magazine. I used InDesign in order to create my; cover, contents page, and double page spread, I found this programme a lot easier to use in order to create my magazine than it was to use Microsoft Publisher I found InDesign easy to use as there were a lot more tools available esspecially for the design I wanted. After doing so I then added images, worked out the layout, and also the content of the magazines. Even during the first time that I used this programme I learnt efficiently; I found it easy to use, even during slightly complicated bits such as installing photos and positioning them correctly. I had help to learn how to do this, though eventually I got the hang of it and was able to finish my magazine independently. I found that with this programme I could make my magazine look professional very easily with hardly any help. I found InDesign extremely helpful and relevant to creating my magazine as it had all of the different tools that I needed in order to do so.
  • Blogger.com With this coursework task I found Blogger.com extremely easy and useful to use; it has been an important programme during this project as it made it easier to see what work I had to do and complete. I found it easy to keep track of my work using its online record system which we have kept all of our media work on and I have used it to update and record all of the work that I have done for this task and others so far it also allowed me to present my work in a clear and consistent way. In this task I have used Blogger.com to blog the production, research and planning. I found it easy to use and to sign up for it; and also to maintain anything that needs doing or updating on my magazine; I think Blogger.com is an excellent source for recording work with. The fact that you can embed videos and slideshows as well as add images to it; helped me a lot with the project as it allowed me to narrate and show how I did things and also find different technologies in order to do so.
  • Slideshare I used slideshare.net to upload and eventually embed my PowerPoint presentations onto blogger.com. I find this an easy website to use as it doesn’t require users to create a log in or account; though there is the choice to; I used a guest account which allows you temporary access. After uploading a PowerPoint onto the website you must convert it; which is done automatically after it uploads and once that is done you can collect the link to it and copy and paste that onto blogger.com. I would definitely use this again as its simple and less complicated that I thought it would be. This programme will allow me to make my evaluation interactive.
  • PhotoShop I only needed photoshop to edit my images on my magazine. I didn't really know how to use photoshop and still don't I had to end up looking on the internet on how to add effects to images then I was finished with that software. I found it easier to edit the rest of my images on a more accesible and simpler online editing website.
  • Digital Camera I had to use my own digital camera for the first time to take images for my Front cover, Double page spread and contents page. I did not find using the camera challenging at all although trying to find the best angle,lighting and overall mis en scene of the shot particularly difficult to master. I had to take in mind how well the image would go behind the masthead and other text and also that the person modelling looked the part. I found uploading the pictures to my computer also very easy and simple to do and did not take up very much time compared to the overall shooting of the pictures themselves. This camera played a major role in the production of my magazine and I would definitely use it again as I felt it was easy to use and it is a good piece of high quality equipment.
  • Conclusion Overall I feel that all of the technology that I used helped me to gather new skills as well as making it easier to complete my work on this project while making everything look as professional as possible. From editing pictures,taking pictures,uploading documents etc.
