Question seven Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?
Comparing Looking at both my preliminary magazine (right) and my coursework magazine (left), you can see obvious differences with the style and layout.

Technical aspects <ul><li>Whilst I was working on my preliminary magazine, I think that I was learning how to use the programmes such as Adobe photoshop and Quark Express. Even though I had been on photoshop before, I hadn’t used it in as much detail needed to make my magazine. Also I hadn’t used Quark at all before, so this was a new experience for me, which is why I believe that my contents page is a much better quality for my coursework magazine. </li></ul>
Photography <ul><li>The differences in my photography is extreme, as they are two completely opposite magazines, suited for a different age range. I think that my photography is better in my coursework magazine mainly because I had more time to pick the right shots. Also, whilst I was doing my photoshoot, I ensured that i included a wide range of shots so I could choose the best ones. This worked to my advantage because I had more shots that I wanted to use, than I even needed. </li></ul>
The Style <ul><li>Looking at both of my magazines, you can see the extreme differences between them. As I only had to do a contents page and a front cover in my preliminary magazine, so this was different to my coursework magazine because I had to maintain the same style throughout the double page spread aswell. Overall, I think it is obvious that I have improved the style of my magazine, editing wise and just the general looks. </li></ul>
