Evaluation question 6

  1. 1. 6. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
  2. 2. Different technologies used • Throughout the process of creating my media product I used a variety of different technologies such as: • Computer • Digital camera • Microsoft word/power point • Internet explorer • The blog (edublogs)
  3. 3. Digital camera • I used this to capture the images that I used on my media product. As it was a digital camera, I was able to view the picture that I had taken immediately, allowing to see if it was what I wanted or if I would need to change certain aspects in order to create a better image. • With the camera I learnt numerous things, but mainly how to use it, but also how to use certain features on the camera to add effects to the image that I had taken.
  4. 4. Examples of photos
  5. 5. Photoshop Photoshop is an image manipulation program, it allowed me to edit and alter the photos that I had taken. I found it extremely useful in the development of my media product, as at first I did not consider altering my images, but after learning, and experimenting with the program I found that I could greatly enhance my images. Photoshop is used by the majority of magazine publications, following the same convention, I too used Photoshop.
  6. 6. InDesign I had never used InDesign prior to construction my media product. During the process I leant how to set up a document that is suitable for creating a cover, contents, and double page spread. The setup system on InDesign allows you to create columns that are of equal size and distance apart. ‘InDesign’ is a popular professional programme that is used in the magazine industry as it produces good quality, professional results. An example of this is the ‘National Magazine Company’. It produces popular high end Magazines such as Country Living, and Cosmopolitan.
  7. 7. The blog The blog allowed me to document, present, and reflect on my work and progress. The blog was easy to use, aiding my work as it allowed me to quickly upload and view my work.
  8. 8. The internet • The internet was hugely helpful during the process. It allowed me to gather information about how to use/work certain programs or devices. The internet allowed me to access my blog and be able to document the work and progress. • Also during the research it allowed me to learn and find information on different music magazines and their conventions.
  9. 9. Social Media • I used social media websites such as Twitter, and Facebook to find information about my target audience and to get their feedback on my work. • I found these site a quick, easy and highly useful source of first hand information coming directly from people that would be the target audience of my magazine.
  10. 10. Here is an example of how I effectively used these social networking websites to gain useful information.
