Investigating Professional Photography Selecting and Constructing photography for the music magazine

Investigating Photography:

Investigating Photography I looked at a series of websites to find appropriate professional photography that I could use in my magazine. This is because: I need to have lots of options for what to use in the magazine. I need to have plenty of variety that helps to represent my music scene accurately.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The image was created by photographer Jean Claude Dhien, who also photographs other celebrities such as Seth Macfarlane. Michael Stipe (R.E.M) I like this one because it’s a very intense and expressive photo. I like that it makes you feel uncomfortable because of the large close up and the intensity of the eye contact/ stare. It could be a cover photo as I think it’s a nice shot and has the potential to work on a cover or it could be on an interview or article page, all black with this image on the right hand side with text opposite it, this is how it could influence the design of the page.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Catfish and the Bottlemen I like the light glare on this image, I think it adds character to the shot, the subject also has an intense look on his face which adds expression and depth to the image. I could use the image On an article page or interview with the band. The image would fit with a black and white page, this would compliment the layout as it would seem to blend into a black background. Image turned black and white possibly in photoshop and colour levels changed so certain areas look darker than others, which creates a greater contrast in tone.

PowerPoint Presentation:

MGMT It could be used to accompany an article. The image would be most suited next to writing, possibly above the image, for instance on top of the image if it carried on further up, so more of the wall was captured. It might have been created for a magazine. I like this one because it’s a bit different and unusual compared with the traditional magazine shoot. The main subjects have an indirect mode of address and seem disinterested by the presence of the camera, which looks effective. Well composed shot, it has a good use of mise - en -scene.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Michael Stipe (R.E.M) It could make an effective cover shot or a nice accompaniment of an article, text could go above and around the hand shape, that would look effective. I like this image because it reflects a previous era, with fashion and photography styles. I like the effect the background has and I think over all it’s a strong/ powerful image. Well composed, rule of thirds used effectively, They’ve also used some sort of blur along the left hand side which makes it seem as though the portrait and background were taken as separate images then layered over.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Kings of Leon I like this one because its shot in an unusual way, interesting choice of setting although it fits nicely with the genre. Limited lighting has been used in the shot just a small amount so you get a rim of black around the outside of the image. Composed well, band wearing normal clothes, rock/ indie look which goes well with the setting. It could make a nice cover photo as I think it would stand out and have a nice effect on a cover. It could also make a nice interview or article shot, the page could have an effective layout if the text overlapped the space at the top of the image, that fits well.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I like this image as I think it is very powerful. Rule of thirds has been used in a really effective and powerful way in the image. She appears to have a strong relationship with the camera, direct mode of address, makes you feel quite uncomfortable. It could be a contents page cover over a double spread or single page, writing could go along the left hand side of the image as it would fit well there. It might have been created by another magazine and been used as a contents page. The image has a filter to improve the contrast, the image is very sharp so that could have been edited. Lana Del Rey

PowerPoint Presentation:

I like this image as it blends into the black background well and it illuminates the subjects face and makes her make up, features and the props used more vivid. The photograph is beautifully shot and works really well. The image also has a mysterious and surreal look that draws the audience in. The image would make a good cover shot as it would stand out on a magazine stand and you could combine lots of colours with the image. A filter was probably used to exaggerate the contrast within the image. The saturation may also have been changed to add effect. Lana Del Rey

PowerPoint Presentation:

I like this image as it is very expressive, it contains a lot of emotion. The mise - en -scene in this image was greatly considered as was the composition of the roses and the set as a whole and it is very effective. It could be used for a double page spread with the text down the left hand side of the image, especially on the white, maybe an emotional piece of text to go with it about the artists struggles The image is really pretty and supposed to be quite moving. The roses could represent death or success of the artist, it depends on how you look at it. Brandon flowers

PowerPoint Presentation:

I like this photograph because it has order and the wall creates a kind of framing on the band. Its clearly well thought out and reminds me of a sort of Beatles Abby road look. I like that the colours are quite dim apart from the outfits, the band have quite a different, indie look to them and I think this image reflects that. The image could be on a double page article spread or with an interview. The text accompanying the image could appear at the top of the image where the sky is. Peace
