Experimenting:I wanted to experiment taking a few shots in a more professional way. To do this I used professional photo studio equipment: a grey backdrop, a softbox, a light stand and one continous light. I positioned the softbox on the left of the model just infront facing the model to give a natural light. I positioned the light stand and continous light behind the model to the right so it would not be seen in the shot, this gave a subtle glow around the sihoulette of the model. I used a professional Canon EOS digital camera to take the shots.

As I was very indecisive of what photos to use for my music magazine front cover, I done quick ‘mini-mock ups’ using the most suitable photos and indentified the pro’s and con’s of each. I would then choose 2 or 3 that would suit best for my music magazine front cover and make three drafts. I would then ask for feedback on which is most appropriate for my final draft.

Photoshoot 2 Mini-Mockups:
After reviewing each of the ‘mini-mockups' pro’s and con’s, I decided to use images 2 and 3 from Photoshoot 1 and image 1 from Photoshoot 2 to create mock up versions of my music magazine front cover.
