Possible + Actual TOC Image This image is pretty much what I was going for except the small imperfections such as the female model’s foot being slightly cut off. The male model also has a slight smile on his face which is not really what I was going for as I wanted the story behind the image to be of the struggles of an artist trying to make it by handing out his mix tapes – but then being rejected. The chosen one This image however is nearly exactly the same, except the model’s foot can be seen in full and the male model has a better facial expression. A combination of these two aspects has led me to use this in my table of contents.
Inspiration for this image This is an image taken from my XXL magazine. Having looked through the magazine for inspiration I came across this image and it sparked immediate ideas. Eventually, I came up with the ‘trials and tribulations’ idea of what an artist had to go through to make it the top. I used this image as a template, however I used 2 models in mine and make the male model pose slightly different with the DVD’s which were his ‘mix tapes’.
Possible + Actual TOC Image This image is something similar to that of what I wanted, however there are some problems with it. Firstly, it cannot be used because of the slight blur in it which effectively ruins the quality. The model’s facial expression is also smiling, which is unsuitable as I was going for more of an intriguing facial expression. The reading material the model is holding also is inappropriate as it is a well known newspaper and I wouldn’t want the front page political controversy to detract from the overall image and all else appearing on my contents page. The chosen one This image is similar but is more suitable in a number of ways. Firstly, the blur of the above image is not present, the model’s facial expression is more mysterious which is what I was looking for and the reading material is more relevant as this is the magazine I have been analyzing throughout my Media project and is based on music.
Possible + Actual TOC Image This image is one of the ones captured during my photo shoot. The models are in a good position, pulling appropriate poses and have good facial expression. However, as I carried on shooting I got a better shot… The chosen one This image however is nearly exactly the same, except you can see the small, white squares on the other side on the zebra crossing. I prefer this image as I believe this aspect of the photo adds more dimensions and therefore looks better.
Inspiration for this image Seeing the Beatles ‘Abbey Road’ image inspired this image a tremendous amount as I actually got the idea from this photo. I didn’t want to copy the image exactly by asking the models to do the same pose. Instead, I told the models which poses to do as it gave the sense of them being in a girl band and that its different to the Beatles image.
Actual TOC Image This image is a primary photo taken when I went to a Tinie Tempah Concert. This picture is extremely relevant as it was a music concert, at an interesting venue appropriate for music and Tinie Tempah is a music artist suitable to my genre. The image is clear in the fact the artist can be seen and the blue lights in the background add interest to the image. The artists name is also clearly seen on the music box. The audience’s hands in which they too are taking pictures also The chosen one show the concert feeling
Inspiration for this image This is another image I took from my XXL magazine. Having looked through the magazine for inspiration I came across this image of Wiz Khalifa and thought of the immediate association with my image Tinie Tempah. Both these artists were in a concert when the images were taken and there is similarities with effects such as the lighting.
Actual TOC Image This is the image I will use for the editor’s photo. It is suitable as it is an image of me at the carnival which is a celebration music from around the round. The pose also suggests being pleased and this is appropriate as its almost as if I’m giving a thumps up to the issue of the magazine. Initially, I was in the photo with a friend but in order to make the image and my Table of Contents look authentic, I had to crop my friend out and use just the image of myself. The chosen one
