42 The framing
and shots used are
effective as they
are visually
pleasing and look
good in terms of
looking professional
and as though the
image shave been
shot for a real
music magazine.
The graphics and
elements used over
the top are
effective and work
with the images.
However, the
image used on the
contents page is
oddly frames and
positioned as the
people arent at the
same height
therefore the image
looks slightly
wonky. As its a
larger image its
harder to ignore
and the framing
looks like the tops
of the girls heads
are almost cut off.
This looks
unprofessional and
untidy.
43 The shot
distances that have
been used are
appropriate and
work very well in
this magazine. The
image on the front
cover in particular
works well as the
medium shot gives
us a clear view of
the artist without
them being to close

Also the artist is
making direct eye

camera which
works well and
draws us in as an
audience. The

used on the

odd and doesnt

as the way the
people are

odd and irrelevant.

45 The images
used are very
effective and the
person on the
cover looks very
connected with the
R&B genre as she
adheres to the
conventions
through the way
she is stood, the
way she looks and
what she is
wearing. The image
on the contents
page does look
slightly odd but is
still relevant and
representative of
the genre. The third

47 The mise-enscene used in the
front cover works
well as the costume
is consistent and
relevant to the
genre of R&B.
Also, the colour
scheme is relevant
and works well as

well as remaining
consistent
throughout the
entire magazine.
Whilst the photo on
the contents page
could have been
shot and framed
slightly better, it
works well with the
genre and the use
of lighting and
shadows is
effective. The
setting in the
image on the
double page spread
isnt really relevant
as it looks like she
is in a ballet studio
which has no
relevance at all to
the fact that she is
an R&B artist. Also
there is no use of
lighting here.

40 The images
are mostly resized
well in relevance to
what has been
placed around
them and where
they are on the
pages. However,
the image on the
contents page
hasnt been
cropped well as the
shadows make it
look as though the
tops of the artists
heads have been
cut. Also, as the
image isnt quite a
midshot it looks
slightly odd as it
has been blown up
to a large size
which emphasises
this. The text on
the contents page
should be the main
focus rather than

an image that
doesnt hold much
significance or
anchorage. Also,
the image on the
double page spread
looks like it has
been made too big
for what it is. The
contents of the
image arent
significant enough
for it to be blown
up to that size.

40 The language
used across the
whole magazine is
consistent and
relevant to the
genre which will
help to attract and
audience that
relate to the kind of
language that has
been used as it is
the same sort of
language that is
used in the music
that the magazine
promotes.
40 The
integration of text
and images works
well across the
magazine, however
I dont like the
sizing and
typography that
has been used on
the headline on the
front cover as it is
too small and
doesnt stand out
enough. There are
also a couple of bits
where the text
looks really
different and there
is a lot of variation
in the different
sizes and font

types which make


it look slightly odd.

understanding
and use of the
page designs
and layout is

which creates a

gives the

and

of variation in

been used well
and
appropriately to

task set.

Summary Comment:
Overall this magazine works well and has been made in such a way that it has a
polished, professional feel to it. However I think that it might have been better if
some of the images such as the ones on the double page spread had been
thought out a little more.
