Using a standard 8.1 mega pixel camera, I took a collection of photographs of my actors in different settings. I played around with the use of the zoom leaver to create different effects and angles. The following slide displays some of the photographs I originally took.
From the collection of photographs I chose to usethese two separate images. Once I had chosen themI enhanced their quality using a simple Microsoftpicture toolbar where I could adjust the lighting andcontrast of both of the images. On the followingslide I will demonstrate how I collaborated the twoimages into one using Photoshop.
toolbarUsing Photoshop I layered my two chosen images on top of each other. I could then used the toolbar to filter the one image through the other creating a blended effect. As thecolours in the two images were similar it made the filter look more natural with the top image giving a hollow outlook whilst the bottom layer burst through.
Once I created my image on Photoshop as shown on the left, i then used Microsoftpublisher to add in the bottom credits and the film titles with actors names and releasedate. I found a neutral pastel colour for the title with a simple effective font. However i then print screened my title so that I could stretch and enhance the font into any shape i wanted to make it look more contemporary rather than using Microsofts standard font size formats.
These are examples of how I created different magazine reviews by changing the picture used. Apart from the photographs, my entire review was created using Microsoftprogrammes. The main use of technology in its construction was text colouring and sizing and space layout.
