      During the preliminary task I did not carry out any research that could help me make my product. I just simply sat and made it without any consideration as to what the readers wanted or whether I was addressing it in a correct way. I also didn't do much planning. I have only made a basic flat plan for my front cover and my contents page and didn't think too much about making the design interesting. I also didn't put any thought into the photographs I took, I just simply took my models somewhere where I thought was suitable and did a few shots. During the actual production of my preliminary task I had already known how to do a few things in Photoshop but I still found it a little bit hard working with it as I struggled a few times trying to get my magazine to look the way I wanted it to be due to lack of skills.

      To compare with my preliminary task, during the whole making of my music magazine I have carried out a lot of market research to find out what other magazines look like, what they feature and also see their way of addressing the product to the audience. I looked at three different popular magazines and analysed them looking at different aspects such as the photography, language used or the colour schemes to help me make my own product.
      I have also carried out some audience research in which I asked different people twenty questions using an online survey, tying to find out as much from them as possible about their ideas, their needs and what they thought makes a good music magazine. I also did a very short interview in which I asked more complex questions to do with music magazine and the music industry, all to help me create the best music magazine possible.
      During the actual task I have also done a lot of planning. I learned that planning is important in order to get things done right. I have planned out my photographs taking into consideration the props I would use (eg. The VW or the leaf in the hair) . I also thought more about the place and the light in which I was going to take my photographs. I even made some very

      basic sketches of what I would like my photographs to look like.
      To ensure that my magazine was going to be of its full potential I have also made a style sheet on which I experimented with colours and different fonts that I was thinking of using for my music magazine. This helped me in the way that once I finally sat to make my product I already had an idea of what I wanted it to look like and saved me time as I didn't have to waste it playing and changing colours in Photoshop if the effect I was getting wasn't desired. I made this mistake during my preliminary task and spent ages while making my front cover to decide what colours I was going to use.
      On top of all that I have also made a lot of designs for my front cover, contents page and the double page spread. I wanted to make sure that I could get the best result possible therefore I made four designs and then had a closer look at them all and compared them. After analysing the designs I made I decided that none of them were good enough on their own and I decided to combine different ideas from each design to create something very unique.

      I have also picked up quite a few new skills in Photoshop and Publisher. I did not know how to use those two properly before making my product and I had a limited knowledge of them but now I definitely feel more comfortable and confident about using them which you can clearly see when looking at both my final version of the preliminary task and the final version of my music magazine.
