Music Magazine cover Photo (edited)

Here is my photo for my music magazine, I have stuck to my plan and selected the highest quality photo out of many that I took. I managed to achieve a high quality image with bright lighting as the weather was good. I have photoshoped the image; removing any uneven tones on skin and blemishes. I did not edit anything else as there was no need and the image did not have any flaws that was needed to be edited.

Photoshoot Plan

I have planned my photoshoot by creating a rough sketch to begin with as this will give me a visual idea of how I would like my photo to look like, I then annotated the image and wrote some detail of location, camera shot, positioning of model, colour scheme and the styling of the model. In my annotations, I have linked each detail of the photo to these elements and keeping to the theme of my magazine; vintage rock.

Magazine cover analysis

I have analysed a front cover on Q magazine as this was one of the most popular magazines being read in a result from my questionnaire. I have analysed in detail of all the main elements that are being used on the front cover. I will consider using similar layouts in my own magazine using influence fom a proffesional and popular music magazine.I will also consider using young and informal text, similar to Q magazine as my taret market is aged between 16-18. The eye flow of the cover is generally an L shape as the fist thing you look at is 'Q' then the main image, then the large text 'GREEN DAY'

Mood board

I have created a mood board for my music magazine in order to get a feel of what image and themes my magazine will have. As my main genre theme is vintage rock, i have inckluded many artists that would be considered vintage rock and also images that are related to punk and rock such as the unuion jack and camden lock. i included many of my personal favourite bands as well as i know the music well and would like to feature them in my magazine. In terms of a colour scheme, there a lot of blacks, whites, blues and reda apparent ando so i will consider using these colours in my magazine.

Mock up TOC

Here is the mock up of my TOC, I have used three images to represent each editorial pillar and have analysed in detail of what I will place on the TOC and how I will do it. I have tried to keep in styialisation of the front cover and so hace used similar fonts and colour scheme to keep a consistency.

Here is my real TOC which I made on Photoshop. I tried to keep to my plan as much as possible to create what I wanted to achieve.
