Magazine Covers

I decided to go with Vogue Magazine as my covers for both of my issues. For both covers I took inspiration from past Vogue magazine covers. For the male cover starring my friend Evan I wanted the focus to be all about the client (the person on the cover). I noticed looking through past male Vogue covers that if the guy isn’t a model/celebrity they had to have done something big or heroic (plus have good fashion sense). Thus, what is bigger or more heroic than saving the President of the United States. For the female Vogue cover I picked one of my favorite celebrities Selena Gomez. I wanted to keep the artistic feel of the background which is why I went with light colors. In addition,some Vogue covers are very simple and not covered with a lot of overpowering text. I wanted my cover to have three characteristics simple, classy and intriguing which I believe I implemented well.

Photo Collages

The first thing I did when it came to my three collages was gather 10 to 15 pictures from my favorite TV shows, Disney characters and favorite musicians.  Then in my head I figured out how I wanted the collages to look. After that I implemented my plan onto Photoshop and tweaked it here and there until I got the final product I wanted.

Objects and A Place

I wanted to photograph a place and objects that I either use almost every day and that has become very sentimental. I picked McEwen Communication Building as my location because my life is in McEwen. When I am not in class (which most of the time is in McEwen) I am either in the editing suits, in the studios, working in the building or doing homework/hanging out outside the studios. Thus, I thought it would be fitting to pick McEwen as my location. Two of the three objects I picked are found inside McEwen.

My first object was inside Control Room A because I spend a lot of time in there. I picked the technical director bored because that system made me fall in love with the behind the scenes of production. Plus, its very pretty and fun to mess with. My second object is my laptop and I chose my laptop for two reasons. The first, all my stickers represent everything that I am involved in on campus and what is important to me.  Secondly, as a college student I am always on my laptop either for school, searching the web or watching Netflix. The last object was Elon After Hours mug and notecard. I just became the executive producer and producer of the show this semester. Being the EP and producer has constantly consumed my life this semester so it’s very important to me.
