I think this would be a great place to take photos as the wind will blow my models hair around giving it a professional look. The scenery will really fit in well with the prop I will be using as the old fashion guitar is usually used for country music and the green field behind should really suit this. I will do my shoot in the day when there is a lot of natural light to make my photos look clear. <br />82677051435<br />Location recce<br />ACTIVITYIS THE LOCATION SUITABLE FOR PHOTO SHOOT?ADDITIONAL COMMENTSLook around the location.yesGolf CourseTalk to people at location, organise photo shoot permissionyes-Identify the equipment you need to use.

The prop I will use is a plain original guitar. The guitar will be held in different positions by the model to see what looks well and what one gives the impression that she is a certain character. <br />Costumes<br /> I will only use one costume throughout the photo shoot. I will get my model to wear fashionable clothes at this time. I will get her to wear something with very neutral colours as I don’t want her clothes to draw attention I want the prop and her position to draw attention. The fashionable clothes should appeal to my target audience and make them feel like they are the same as the model on the front cover and inside the page.<br />Photo of Consume<br />Draft 1Front CoversEvidence of drafting<br />-170815309245<br />Draft 2<br />-80645180340<br />Contents Pages<br />-45720631825Draft 1<br />Draft 2<br />-67310158115<br />Masthead<br />Double Page Spreads<br />-847725675005Draft 1<br />-809625344170Draft 2<br />-85725542925321Shot Types<br />54<br /><ul><li>Taking a photo of my model in medium close up would be good because it will show a lot of my model and will also show most of the prop. This is what I want the reader to see as the prop will be the main focus. I will take the photo at a low angle to show that my model is important and powerful.I will take a photo of my model in medium shot, sitting down looking out of frame to make the shot interesting and to show that she is posing for the camera. My model will be left of frame to also make the shot interesting and to show some of the background.Another shot I will use is a medium shot with my model left of frame to also show some of the background and also to make the photo a bit more interesting. My model will be looking at the camera to engage the audience.My model will be centre frame facing forward and looking into the camera to make eye contact with the readers. This will make the focus on the model rather than the background. She will be in medium shot to show both her and the prop to make the shot interesting.This will be a long shot of my model at a low angle so that my model is looking down at the camera to give the impression that she is important and powerful. A long shot will mean that it gets most of my model in the photo including the prop. </li></ul>My Flat Plan<br />-752475109220<br />Audience Feedback<br />Front cover:<br />Amy Robb – <br />I like draft number one for the front cover. This is for many reasons. I like the main image being where it is because it draws attention to it, the fact it is so large makes it stand out so it is the main focus. The cell lines along the side of the magazine are very effective because it gives you an insight into what is inside the magazine. I like where the mast head is because it is centred and large drawing attention to it. The sky line is good too because it will draw attention to the article it is holding. <br />George Preston - <br />The draft that I prefer for the front cover is draft number one as I think that it is more spread out and would make it easier for me and other readers to read the content on the page. I like the fact that he has used a skyline at the top of the page as I think that it will be the first thing people read before the rest of the content. I like how he has used a large image to attract attention to the reader. I also like the large masthead. The use of cell lines with reference to the page number makes it easier for the readers to navigate around the magazine. I think that the flash doesn’t stand out that well and I think that it should be a different shape and location.<br />Will Grimsey – <br />The draft I like the best is draft one as I think that it would appeal to the audience more. I think that the overall layout would attract the readers, especially the large image on the right as it takes up a lot of space on the page. I like how he has used cell lines to draw the audience in and I like the fact that he used page numbers for the cell lines. I think that using the flash is also a good way of getting the audience’s attention.<br /> <br />Contents page: <br />Amy Robb - <br />I like draft number two for the contents page. This is because it looks better and is more organised. I like how there are images in which relate to the articles within the magazine. This is because it saves you having to read the whole contents in order to find an article. I like how the actual contents is positioned on the other side of the page then typical magazines as it looks more interesting. I think by having the name of the magazine in the top left corner is effective because it creates a consistent look which overall looks professional.<br />George Preston – <br />Draft number two is the best draft out of the two because the layout looks much neater. I like the large masthead and the name of the magazine in the corner as this should make it stand out to the readers. I like the fact that everything is put into sections and have a clear space in between them. I think that the advertising section is a very good idea and giving reference to the page number on the images is also a good idea as it makes the magazine easy to navigate. I think that he could choose one large image instead of smaller images to get the readers attracted.<br />Will Grimsey - <br />Although draft one is very unique, I also prefer draft two as it is much neater and very clear for the readers to understand the content of the magazine. I like how he has a large area for his content and also like the idea of using the page for advertising. I think that inserting the name of the magazine into the contents page is a good idea as it makes the magazine seem consistent and gives a professional look to the page. I think that the masthead is in a good location and I like the fact that it is off center to make the page look a bit different. I think that adding page numbers to the images is good as it is an easy way of readers accessing content by a visual way.<br />Double page spread: <br />Amy Robb – <br />I prefer draft one as I like how the article is spread out over the two pages and I like how there is a lot of it so that it gives a detailed article for the readers. The image looks very large which can have a big effect on the readers as it stands out and gives an insight to what the article is about. I like how some of the text is overlapping the image as I’m guessing he is using a technique called text wrapping. I think that this will make the page look very professional and neat. I think that the location of the masthead is very unique as typical magazines have the masthead at the top. I think my putting it somewhere different can make the layout seem different to other magazines and can make it more interesting for the audience.<br />George Preston – <br />My favourite draft is draft two as I think that the layout is much neater than the other draft. I like the fact that the masthead is stretched along the two pages making it stand out to the readers. I also like how the main article is split into two separate columns as it makes it easier to read. I think that the pull quote is a good idea as it attracts the attention of the readers and gets them to read it and makes them want to read the article more. I think that making the image very large is a good ideas as it gives an impression of what the article is going to be about. <br />Will Grimsey – <br />The draft I like the best is draft 1 as I think that it is a very unique layout and think that it would attract the readers more. I like the use of the large image in the corner as I think that it will catch the reader’s eye when flicking through the pages. I also like how the article is separated into columns as it makes it easier to read for the audience and makes the page look much neater. The thing I don’t like about this draft is the mast head as I think that it is quite small in proportion to the main text and image which is not as important. I think the masthead should be much bigger for it to stand out to the readers. <br />
