There were a variety of photographs I took in the creation of my ancillary task, and here I will present the number of drafts I considered for my poster and C.D cover and explain my reasons for not including them in my work. I decided not to use the band as the front cover of my C.D due to me not being able to find the right look. I could not find the right age range and the suitable genre to represent my band of an ‘Indie’ appearance, as most people i spoke to had a very busy schedule in college with their own work to attend to. Furthermore, there would be nobody in college to fit the correct age range, I was searching for late teenagers or early 20s to be the image of my C.D cover however having unable to do this I resulted in using a young teenage girl who is 13 years old. She is only a model and is just representing the C.D cover as she is fresh faced, attractive and is different from the usual indie style.
This was an original image of my C.D cover, the look she expresses is quite blank and not ‘indie’ looking. I could not create an unusual image which was what I was looking to explore thefore I did not use this image.
The black and white effect I put over the original image made it too dark to write the song names therefore I could not use this image as it did not look as professional however I changed the lightening on my final back cover which made the image much more effective and professional.
This was my first draft of my advertisement, I thought this looked quite successful however as it was an advertisement it wasn’t too clear as the image was very dark. It also did not give off the message I was hoping for, ‘a view from another eye’. I wanted to present my advertisement with a distorted look which would be viewed upon much more unusual to grab my audiences attention.
Below are original images in which I did not use because they was not the right ‘look’ I was searching for.
