Investigating Professional Photography:

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.

Slide 3:

I like this one because it makes her look strong and dominant by the way she's stood and looking at the camera. It could be used for a front cover of a magazine. It would influence the design of the page because of the background and colours used.

Slide 4:

I like this one because she's not looking at the camera and you can just see the side of her and it looks natural like she doesn’t even know the photo is getting taken. It could be used for a secondary lead on a magazine front cover. It would influence the design of the page by having a simple photo ones that’s not bold and crazy.

Slide 5:

I like this one because it is different and shows what her and her music is like, she's having fun with it and not having a serious photo taken. Her eyes are wide open which makes it look like she is staring at you. It could be used for a secondary lead photo. It would influence the design of the page because she has graphic features on her legs and arms.

Slide 6:

I like this one because the colours and arrangement of her and prop look good, her eyes are closed but because there's bright colours and it looks busy it looks better with her eyes closed. It could be used for a front cover. It would influence the design of the page by adding bold red colours and a fun look to it.

Slide 7:

I like this one because it shows music with him having headphones and it looks casual and simple. It could be used for a contents page. It would influence the design of the page by the calmness of the photo so its not as a bold as other images.

Slide 8:

I like this one because her full body is in the shot but she's laid down and positioned her body to partly face the camera but her head and eyes face the camera but on by looking up. It could be used as a secondary lead photo. It would influence the design of the page because it is a black and white image.

Slide 9:

I like this one because she's facing the side but looking directly in to the camera. It looks like she is slightly looking down at the camera. It could be used for a front cover of a magazine. It would influence the design of the page because the the colours used on this photo are black but her eye shadow is purple you could link colours to that.

Slide 10:

I like this one because it has got her full body in but she's not stood up, and her body's facing the side but her head is turned to look at the camera. It could be used on a contents page.
