Front Cover

The image on the right was the origanal shot of my model and as you can see the skin colour is grey so i edited the contrast on it and changed the colour scheme around a bit which brought me to the image above. This image is much more warmer and alive which looks better. It also makes my model look healthier.

This is my first draft of my two page music magazine spread. I have used only two font colours so that it looks organsied and ive also used the same colours that are on the front cover so that everything matches. I've used the same model on the front cover aswell but just in a diffrent pose.

I have changed the model on the front of my magazine because i prefer this picture. I've also edited a bit of the writing around to make it look better.

This is the music magazine cover that I have decided to start analysing.

On this magazine cover there is only a limit of four colours being used this is very typical of magazines as it makes everything match and look presentable. There is also only three fonts used which makes sure everything is in proportion and that there isn't too much going on which could make the magazine look messy or to busy. Therefore the magazine looks simple yet good. As the cover model they have chosen Fergie from Black Eyed Peas. This is good because Fergie is a well known woman and is quite attractive. She is in a sexualised pose which is eye catching this is also a medium shot. She has flesh on show which attracts a male audience as well as a female audience. She also is looking straight into the camera which shows she’s confident. This is a common convention of music magazines because it makes the reader want to read about the person on the cover therefore they used somebody popular. The model is also centralised. The word "Fergie" is also slightly bigger than the rest of the text this draws your attention to it.
The title "Blender" is set behind the models head this indicates that the magazine is a well known one so the reader will concentrate what else is on the cover instead. For example the model and the information on that front.
