Images Chosen I have chosen this picture I took at the Keystones in York as one of the features in my magazine as I feel that it is a good shot of the lead singer of the band. The way that the singer is focused on his guitar gazing down upon it gives the idea to the audience that he is passionate about his music and can relate to people that would read the magazine. It is a central shot so we are on his level and have a full view of his guitar and the gig atmosphere behind him. This would be a good image to feature as a main photo on the cover. Adjusting the contrast and exposure with a grey overlay on Photoshop would make the picture more unique and eye-catching on the cover of the issue.
Images Chosen This shot I feel would be suitable for use within the contents page of my issue as I feel that is shows the band getting really into their music. As all their focus is on their instruments it shows passion for the music they are creating. The way that they are stood together in the shot also communicates that they have a sense of togetherness and are tight as a band.
Images Chosen This is one of my stronger images that I would use in my double page spread of the band. The way that the band are all stood in the same way and are almost symmetrical in how they play their instruments at this time. I would edit this picture by putting a brown overlay on the image to portray it is an older better quality picture and different from other that may feature within other magazines.
Images Chosen I like this image as it shows the full set of the gig. Although I would adjust the exposure to a higher level as it is not a clear enough picture to feature in the magazine as it is. Increasing the exposure would make the picture clearer and cropping it to show only the band and the floor lighting would improve the look of the composition shown.
Images Chosen This image taken of the lead singer of the band King No-One is in portrait so could be used as the main image when edited to more suitable. I would crop this shot to a medium shot so I could focus more on the facial expression of the singer and his instrument. I would adjust the saturation to lower in the image so that the writing on the main cover would be more noticeable.
Images Chosen Using a running mode on my camera the lights streamed along the image that I had taken. I like this image as its very individual and two members of the band have eye contact with the camera which engages with the audience. The genre of the magazine being individual rock I like the way that this image reflects that.
Images Chosen This image shows the venues flier for the gig that the band played when I was collecting the pictures. This would be used as a sub image on my double page spread featuring the band as it shows the band that they were supporting and where the gig was. This shows the band up and coming within the music industry and is different to other images that I have collected.
