Q6. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
Photography & Lighting
From creating my magazine, I have learnt a lot of things too keep in mind when it comes to photography and lighting. I've learnt the importance of having correct lighting when teaking a photograph and the meaning. I've learnt that when taking a photo for your front cover, your model needs to have direct eye contact with the camera and the lighting needs to be focused your model's facial expression to attract the audience and give the feel you want.
For my photography, I used a dslr camera which i was very familiar with however It's contributed to my knowledge of cameras because I practiced taking photographs manually.
To make my magaine and to put it together, I needed photoshop cs6. I was new to this programme and have never used it before so I had little knowledge of how to use it. The first ever used this was for my preliminary task. However, after a few hours of using photoshop whilst creating my magazine, I aquired basic skills of using photoshop like the lasso tool which i used to highlight and crop my model from the background then place him/her on a different background. I also learnt to use the texbox tool to ad text anywhere on the maga.zine. I felt like i was at a disadvantage because my peers had previous knowledge of photoshop however I learnt a lot from photoshop
For my evaluation, I used different programmes to answer the 7 evaluation questions. Doing this allowed me to establish some creativity in my answers. I hadn't used most of these programmes before so I found it challenging to use it. I used: Prezi, Wideo, Microsoft Power Point& Haiku Deck. I found these really interesting and fun because I could experiment with different non- boing ways to present my work.
