What I have learnt about technologies from the process of constructing the product. This is an evaluation looking at the variety of media technologies that I have learnt to use throughout the construction of the music magazine.

Photography My coursework has required me to take a variety of high quality images that can be used in the magazine to make it look more professional. In order to do this I used a High quality Cannon SLR digital camera for all of the images in my magazine. I had to learnt how to use the camera effectively in order to get suitable images for the magazine. I looked at performing low angle shots for the front cover as well as that I made the image on the front cover a medium close up in order to fit in with conventions of a music magazine. For the double page spread I had to use flash on the Camera which was another a=example of the technologies used I also had to accurately zoom and focus the lens of the camera before transferring the images onto a PC for editing. I used a Cannon digital SLR very similar to this one to take the images for my music magazine pages.

Quark Quark was used to construct both the contents page and the double page spread for my music magazine, this was a software that I had never used before and therefore used to learn throughout the process of the production. Quark helped me to format the pages efficiently through the employment of guides on the page giving me a simple and efficient way of making the page look neat and professional. I was able to include the images that I had took on the digital camera into quark when producing the pages. I was able to add columns in to the contents page through quark and was able to add text and images to begin construction, I also used media from the internet downloading suitable texts from ‘’ this allowed me a way of getting fonts that looked good on my magazine and also fitted in with the conventions well. In terms of the double page spread I incorporated media through editing the image in quark that I affected to give it more a affect typical with the magazines themes and genre as well as that I added shapes and text to make the product look more professional.

Photoshop Photoshop was used to construct the front cover of my music magazine, again I used a variety of features within Photoshop in order to produce the front cover. One of the things that I learnt to do is how to delete the background of a image, the image that I had chosen to use on the cover had a background that I didn’t want, I therefore used the magic wand tool to delete the background and also the lasso tool to draw around and edit out any unwanted background. Furthermore I learnt to use other technologies, I wanted to make the masthead look like a sticker effect I therefore used the polygonal lasso tool to draw around and rotate the top corner of the text and used a stroke to make the masthead appear like a sticker. I also employed media that I had learnt in order to add shapes to the text creating a banner that I angled and also text that I edited using strokes and colour overlays on the cover.
