What have you learnt about technologies in the process of constructing this product?

  1. 1. When producing my media product I used a variety of new and different technologies in order to bring realism to the piece and to help me produce a professional product. I used both hardware and software; Hardware Software Computers Photoshop Macs Microsoft PC’s Prezi IPhone Go Animate Digital camera Dafont Pen drive Blogger Q6: What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
  2. 2. NEW TECHNOLOGIES… Throughout the whole process, including the research element of things, I have been introduced to a variety of brand new technologies I had never used before such as MAC computers, Photoshop, Go Animate and Prezi. However I have learnt to work with these and built up my confidence in using them in order to be able to use them sufficiently so that the media produce looks professional and conventional to real media products.
  3. 3. My iPhone was a technology that I already knew well and it wasn’t new to me when I had to use the video camera. However when it came to uploading the videos to my blog and YouTube| it because something I had to figure out and learn how to use it. The mac computers were something I had previously used and already had knowledge about, it was the software that I had to learn more about and practice using. This was the most useful piece of hardware when it came to producing my media product due to the high tech software that enabled me to design and produce a professional looking product. The digital camera was another piece of technology that I was already familiar with, although like the other there was certain aspect that I had to learn about. The settings on the camera are not something I know a lot about and change, but I had to learn how to adjust lightings and flash. Familiar products, new skills…
  4. 4. Photoshop… I have used Photoshop in both simple and more technical way in order to produce my product. Here I have used levels make the images brighter so that the model and her outfit can be seen more clear on the front cover. This also helps improve the lighting on her and in the background.
  5. 5. Photoshop… With Photoshop I learnt how to correct problems I had with my photos and It allowed me to reshape certain things on my models body, which is what they do in real media products so that images look more presentable and professional. This allowed my to reshape the bottom part of her dress and make her legs look smoother instead of buffered.
  6. 6. Photoshop… The lighting in the room when taking the shots for the front cover meant there were large and unwanted shadows. Photoshop allowed me to remove then in order for me to put just my model onto a different background without this shadow.
  7. 7. Photoshop… 1 2 3 4 I was able to change aspects of the props and mise-en-scene images in order for then to look smoother and without any unwanted shadows. I went from image 1 to 4 so that I could use the image with a different background.
  8. 8. Photoshop… I reshaped the hair line as after taking the picture I realised that the flash made the odd ends and chunks of hair look out of place and really shows the flaws of her hair. I also made it look smoother in order to make it still have a natural and untouched look.
  9. 9. Photoshop… I learnt a lot about Photoshop however I still had to develop my skills whilst producing my product. Unfortunately whilst erasing an unwatd shadow it created a whiteline around the hairline of my model, which I was not able to prevent happening if I was to remove the shadow. With the clone tool it allowed me to remove the white line by copying the skin colur and placing it over the white part.
  10. 10. Problems faced… The only issue from using these new technologies is that you are learning new things and coming across a variety of difficult scenarios each time you use them. This caused slight issues when trying to over come these problems as it was at time very time consuming and tings were sometimes ruined in the learning of these new tasks. One of the main technologies I faced issues with was Photoshop, due to the fact that this was the first time I had ever used this device and it is a very technical programme.
