6 a professional photography (students)

  1. 1. Selecting and Constructing photography for the music magazine
  2. 2.  I looked at a series of websites to find appropriate professional photography that I could use in my magazine. This is because:  I need to have lots of options for what to use in the magazine.  I need to have plenty of variety that helps to represent my music scene accurately.
  3. 3.  I like this one because of the expression in the subject’s face. It’s not serious and gets across that the band he’s in is ‘fun’ It could be used for an inset photo, a pop-up figure. If photoshopped, could also be a cover. It would influence the design of the page by making sure the colour scheme fits around it, for example you could make a box red or black to match his clothes. It might have been created by a music photographer.
  4. 4.  I like this one because it gives you the feeling of being at the show, the bright lights in the background give a very realistic visual effect. It could be used for an inset or a double page feature of the band, or alternatively a secondary lead. It would influence the design of the page by It might have been created by basing the rest of the features on the page around this main photo.
  5. 5.  I like this one because of the fact it’s totally not serious- it gives off the vibe that the band are up for having fun. It could be used for a cover photo, although perhaps it would be more suited to a cover if it was in colour. Maybe a secondary lead or as an inset. It would influence the design of the page by possibly having all the other photos in monochrome. It might have been created by a professional photographer, and an editor.
  6. 6.  I like this one because of the facial expression in the subject, it gets across the aggression in the band, and their live show. It could be used for an inset photo, or a secondary lead. It would influence the design of the page by possibly making the designer include other photos of the same show. It might have been created by a professional photographer.
  7. 7.  I like this one because  It could be used for a  It would it’s really elaborate and magazine cover, a influence the design of the unique looking. The double page feature, page by the indirect mode of contents insets, a way the band is address adds to the feature about the band. in water- if it mysterious vibe the was a double water gives off. page spread the whole thing could be ‘water’ themed.  It might have been created by a professional photographer and artist.
