WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNT ABOUT


TECHNOLOGIES FROM THE PROCESS
OF CONSTRUCTING THIS PRODUCT?

CAMERA
For al the photos in the magazine I had to use a
still camera. Generally I just used the automatic
setting because that sets the correct shutter
speed and aperture for you. One thing I did need
to be conscious of was the angles that the photos
were taken at, so they would be flattering and
interesting. Also although the camera helps with
lighting I mostly shot in locations that had a good
source of naturel light, which saved my from
needing to edit to much later on.

PHOTOSHOP &
INDESIGN
To construct my cover and contents I used Photoshop, but
for the double page spread I used InDesign. I had used
some Photoshop before in the preliminary but this time I
learned more about how to do simple tasks effectively.
Such as better editing my images and using the marquee
tool to create shapes that can be placed behind text,
making it stand out more.
With InDesign however I had never used it
before. But the program did allow me to
produce an A5 piece effectively. There is
also a set boarder so it was easy to add the
page number and repeat masthead in these
margins.

PRESENTING
For the research, planning and evaluation aspects
of the project there was a lot of information that
needed to be presented. I used a range of
websites and programs to do this including Prezi,
Powtoon and PowerPoint.
PowerPoint and Powtoon are effective in splitting
information up into sections, developing evidence
and creating a presentation.
Prezi I found useful for creating mind map type
styles, so information can take shape of a small
project where info is set out and can be linked
together with one base question or desire.
Both Prezi and Potoon were new pieces of
technology for me but I felt capable in effectively
using and creating with them.
