When taking the picture is used a Nikon camera because the quality of it was better than using a standard camera. I managed to use it to focus on the main feature I wanted on my model, as well as have the right settings on the camera. I used different settings on the camera such as how to shoot a portrait of someone as well as how I would take a close-up of a non-moving image. The camera allowed me to use a flash and no flash, I decided not to use a flash because the lights that I was using were already extremely bright and made my models face light up along with her main features. I did not use a tripod for the camera because I wanted to get lots of different angles, so I used it handheld.
This is the camera that I used, it is called the Nikon DSLR.
I used a standard Toshiba laptop allowing me to upload all of the images that I took. I also used the software downloaded onto the laptop to create my magazine.
I used publisher to make my magazine and put everything where it needed to be. This allowed me to arrange my magazine in however I wanted to. It allowed me to re-size images and text size making it fit on completely with the page. Publisher also allowed me to include the text on my double page spread. I did not use font space as it would have not looked correct using fonts off of a website, which is why I used a publisher font and made the text go into columns.
I used font space in order for me to create the fonts that I wanted to go on my magazine. There were a large variety of different fonts that I could have used, however I decided that I wanted to stick to sans-serif fonts because they were the ones that looked most modern.
I used fireworks because it allowed me to edit my images. When I took the pictures I had to remove the white background for me to post them on my magazine. I used the magic wand tool to allow me to remove this background. When I was doing this, parts of the models hair was being cropped out, this then meant I had to use a tool in order for me to match her hair colour and try and redraw her hair on to it in order for it to look correct.
The presentation software that I used was SlideShare and Prezi. These allowed me to show my research, planning and evaluations. It looks more professional rather than having to post my information plainly onto a wordpress post. It shows my creativity through the use of presentation software.
