Ashleigh DarlingtonWork evaluationProject:Our project was to make three digitally manipulated images that would relateto teenagers, and promote websites that they should go on, these websitesare: Talk to Frank, Brook and Young Minds. Before the actual process of takingpictures and manipulating them and putting them on the template label of thebottle we had to research information about these three websites and aboutlucozade in order to help get a better understanding, which I found made iteasier to choose my images and get on with the rest of the process.EffectivenessAt the start of the brief I did not understand properly what we had to do as Iwas confused, this caused me to be a little behind with it all as I wasn’tproperly sure what it was I had to do. However I found the research part of thisproject easy to do, but after the research I had trouble with coming up with myown idea’s of digitally manipulated images, however by collecting digitallymanipulated images off the internet that other people had already made and itgave me a chance to see what digitally manipulated images I liked and whatcaught my eye, which gave me ideas for my own images as I picked certainparts from all the different images that I liked.Source of informationI believe that my research was effective, for research I made mind maps tooklots of pictures of the internet as well as my own later on and found out lots ofinformation. All this helped me to develop an understanding of Lucozade andwhat it’s about also the same with the other campaigns we was involving inour project, It also helped me come up with my image ideas. Whilst doing mywork I wrote/drawn my ideas, this was to help me remember and so I wouldhave it there and add to it along the way. I took the images of my friend andgot her opinions on some of my ideas.
Production ProcessResearch: research was the first thing I did, I found my research very effectiveand helpful, I looked at all the websites I would be using, which helped meunderstand what it was that hey do and what it was that I had to do, as beforemy research I wasn’t fully sure what my task was. I also looked at otherdigitally manipulated images and collected the ones I liked and gathered themtogether and picked out different things from each to come up with my ideas.Planning: I used mind maps for all my planning, I did drawings and wrotethings, explaining what to do and what I thought, I found it very helpful when Iwent back to it before starting my work as it helped me remember.Preparation: I hired a camera so that I was able to take the pictures and had allmy notes and ideas with me whilst I took the pictures then I planned when meand my two friends would all be free and where we could go to take thepictures.Production: When actually taking pictures I went to my house with my twofriends, I had lots of different changes of clothes and make up for my friendthat would be my model and took lots of different pictures in different roomsafter changing clothes and doing make up to fit the image and purpose that Iwas doing. I had to take lots of images of the same thing to make sure I got itright this did take a while but paid off in the end however on some I could havedone with taking a few more better ones.Time management: I realised that I didn’t manage my time very well as I had allmy pre-production and pictures I had taken prepared for the task’s deadlinehowever I had no manipulated any of them and this is what I found the hardestand what took me the longest.Project management: I picked certain days and planned what days I would beable to do certain things, like the days I could take my images and things likethat. These did go to plan too.
Monitoring work in progress: I didn’t regularly check my work whilst it was inprogress, which led me to be behind a lot and spend too much time on onetask rather than moving on to the others. I found that I didn’t look at the tasksproperly as I didn’t think that some would take me longer than others as I onlyplanned myself to use the exact same time for each task.Technical difficulties: Some difficulties I found was when I actually came tostart manipulating my images on Photoshop, I found that my plans was a littledifficult to carry out, for example I took two different images that I planned tocombine together half of each image and but when I came to do it although Ihad took lots of pictures of each one none of them was on the same angle so itwas difficult to do and as I wasn’t able to take one of the images again I had tofind another way around it, which I did but my end result wasn’t as good asplanned because of this.Creative ability: I was able to be creative with my images; I was creative withmake-up and ideas. I used lots of things and lots went into dressing up theperson before the actual pictures and also creative when digitally manipulatingthem. However before all this at the start I found it difficult to think of creativeideas but in the end after research i ended up coming up with too many ideas.Finished ProductWhen I finished my artwork it did turn out different then originally planned,this was due to not being able to do everything I had wanted as certain thingsdid not go right along the way, making my final piece different as I had tochange things.I think that my product will work for my intended audience as it had to attractteenagers and I included a teenager on it, also my images were unusual andeye catching which would make people look then hopefully want to go on thewebsite to find out more.
I am pleased with how something’s have turned out, however I think thatother things could have been better as certain things didn’t turn out as good asI planned as I didn’t take certain things in to consideration whilst planning like,such as like what I did on my frank label as I took two images of the same facebut changed it then I wanted to merge the two faces together using half ofeach face however when I actually tried to do this all the images I had tookwere slightly different angles and didn’t match up properly, I tried my hardestto go around this, but as I couldn’t take any more pictures I had to make dowith what I had already took so I eventually got them together the best I couldbut some bits are still a little off and uneven.Is it ready for print? Yes all three of my Images have been completed, turnedinto JPEG images and put onto my label ready for print.
