Another key learning point for me was the colour schemes. This is very important in relating to the theme on the front cover, especially the image. For example i learnt the black and white associated nicely with my artist who is from an era of black and white photography and cameras. However the colour schemes of the School Magazine display no sense of purpose and are not well thought through.This looked poor in my opinion so i learnt a valuable lesson to ensure i had purpose behind each feature, and colour schemes were a very important feature in my opinion.
It is clear that the codes and conventions have improved since my early Prelim Task, everything has become alligned and kept even and precised; whereas in the Prelim Task it shows poor execution. For example the Berlin photos are overlapping onto the laptop which can look poorly finished and unproffesional. I learnt from this as a Media student, even if it is kept simple; execution and detail is what makes the piece look well constructed and proffesional
It became clear to me that editing was hugely important for the piece to catch someones eye. For example the poorly structured cropping and no editing through filters on the prelim task meant it looked very basic and unproffesional. However when making my Music Magazine i discovered it was so important to engage your audience with editing that appeals to your genre and audience as it will draw them in.
