FIRST SHOTS- CONTENTS PAGE • When taking my contents page shots, I looked for different ideas so I could offer a range in my music magazine. I also choose to look at different levels and angles which make shots look more effective.• My focus was more on the outfit and who looked more engaging with the audience when doing my medium shots. • Once again I choose three models to participate so I could get a clearer idea of what works best with what.• I also did not use these images for the contents page as after taking these shots I felt I already had a medium close up for my front cover, so my contents page had to offer something different preferably a different type of shot to make it more eye catching.
FIRST SHOTS- CONTENTS PAGE • At first my initial thoughts were to use this picture for my contents page over the other two. I then manipulated and edited the image as shown. Then to discover it would come to better use on a double page spread. However I did not use it in the end. • The image is well presented making the model look natural and the makeup chosen is not to heavy and is really complimenting. Also when choosing the outfit I continued the idea of natural beauty with the ‘white’ clothing and accessories.
SECOND SHOTS- CONETENS PAGEMODEL TWO. MODEL THREE.
SECOND SHOTS- CONTENTS PAGE• I got my ideas for this shot off a current hip-hop music magazine VIBE. I saw the contents page and instantly thought it would appeal to my target audience as it has a sexual seductive approach featuring celeb CIARA compared to the natural look of my front cover. • When choosing my clothing I also considered what the celeb on vibe was wearing which was a tight leotard and heels. The main focus was on her strong powerful legs and her eye contact with the audience that gave a feel of female dominance.• I choose to use this idea with my two models however model two was not comfortable in wearing the tight clothing.
SECOND SHOTS- CONTENTS PAGE • I did not use this shot as I didn’t feel it was very powerful. The model looks slightly uncomfortable and her leg stance was not as high and upright as I had planned. • The costume I choose also did not go exactly to plan as it makes her look slightly bare and uncomfortable. • Also her facial expression is slightly vacant and I didn’t feel it engaged at all.
SECOND SHOTS- CONTENTS PAGE • I choose to use this image for my contents page as I felt it was very strong. The eye contact was spot on and her legs and the costume made my aim of sexual but powerful came through.• I manipulated the image so it stood out against my silver background I planned to do and to show her facial features better.
