Camera Shots and What
Makes a Good Photograph
What makes an effective image
for a magazine?
What makes an effective image for a magazine is an image
that is appropriate to the style/genre of the magazine and is
of high quality.
There are a variety of different shots I could include within
my magazine these include long and medium shots as well
as a close up or a extreme close up. All of these give a
different effect in a magazine and can be used for different
A long shot is a photo that shows the entire body of the
person/people and is sometimes used to place them into
their surroundings or a prop. I feel although this shot is
effective as it helps show things other then the artist within
A medium shot is a photo from a medium distance that is
closer up to the person than a long shot but still shows
some of the surroundings and the persons attire. It is
usually taken from the waist up. I would use this as I feel it
has mix of all the shots.
A close up is a shot that typically only shows the persons head
and very little of the surroundings and is used to show the
face/facial expressions of the individual. I would not use this as I
feel it focuses too much on the artist.
Extreme Close Up
An extreme close up shot is a shot that shows a specific small
area on a larger scale. I would not use this as I feel other shots
have a much greater effect.
What makes a Good
There are a range of things that make a good photograph
the one that I feel are most important are effective lighting,
facial expression theory, effective positioning and the rule of
Lighting one of the most important things in photography as it
can make or break a photo some of the most important things
to consider is the angle of the light , the ability to capture ray’s
of light within photos and the use of silhouettes. All of these
are determined by light and give a wide range of effects.
Facial Expression Theory
The facial expression of the model on your magazine
heavily effects the way in which the reader is influenced by
it. For example if the model facial expression shows anger it
will make the magazine come across as quite dark, in
contrast is the facial expression is happy it will have a light
hearted tone to it.
In photography it is important to position the people within
the frame effectively. It is important not to cut part of people
such as their head. When taking images of moving objects it
is important to give them room to run into and not straight
out of the frame.
