This is my Magazine Cover that I made about wrestling. I had a picture from wrestling so I put it on the cover because I thought it looked nice. I put a lot of time into it and I thought it looked good.
This is my magazine cover. I chose baseball because I love it and it is my favorite sport. I chose the headline of "Players Making History" because I hope to make baseball history someday. The quotes I put on the side are personal quotes of mine. The white one is a general personal modo. The blue one is strictly a baseball term. The picture I put on there is my baseball gear I use every game of my own.

8 Pictures

This is my 8 pictures only it's only 5 because the rest are still on my camera. This was a fun project trying to get the pictures of certain things posed a challenge.






Magazine Cover

This is my magazine cover. It's called Betta Fish, because I have a betta and I like them. I took the picture myself, but it's not of my fish. The fish actually belongs to another teacher. I tried to base the color scheme of off the rocks in the fish bowl. I used mainly Adobe Illustrator to create it, but I had to use Adobe Photoshop to fill in the color for the background. 

My name is in the top corner on the left side.

golf magazine

This is my Magazine. I liked how the cover is very calm and suddle. The red in the title really makes my bag stand out and I really like golf so this all works out very good.

Magazine Physics Monthly

This is my magazine. I wish I could have done a better job on the Einstein Rosen Bridge but I couldn't figure out how to warp a straight line, I did learn some cool new tools on Ai and Ps tho so it worked out. The background is the best part of this it is suppose to look like atoms in a molecule, it started off as octagons in Ai then I took it over to Ps and played around with it it their and that is what resulted. 
I know I should have filled it up more but I couldn't figure out what else to put in. 
This is the background in Ai before I took it into Ps.

Montage Chadda

I gathered these pictures together at the clubhouse up by the golf course and the pool. I chose this location because I work at the clubhouse and I love to play golf. I also swim at the pool a lot during the summer. After gathering these pictures together I montaged them together using photoshop.

This is my montage. I took the pictures for it at Brandt Park. This picture is personal to me because I spent a lot of time playing down there with my friends and siblings. 


           This is a montage of my house; my brother just happened to have the dirt bike out. This was right before we got all of the rain, you can see the storm coming up from the south.

Kurtis Montage

This is my montage I have created. I did the High School Gym because I love basketball and I had alot of good memories on that court.

Sally's Montage

My picture consisted of 19 pictures layered on top of each other. I like doing this project because you had to slowly and carefully inch the pictures accurately. I would do this project again if I could.

Looking Ahead - Magazine Cover

Elements of a Magazine Cover
Adapted from http://www.magforum.com/cover_secrets.htm
The ingredients             Use on front cover
Masthead (logo)       The name of the magazine displayed in a specific typeface. This is the visual branding of the title and is often done in a specially designed typeface to be very recognizable and unique. The masthead is usually used on the contents page inside as well as the front cover, and as a logo for advertising and branding purposes
Dateline       Month and year of publication, often with the price. Note that a monthly magazine usually hits the newsstands the month before the cover date
Main image       The front cover features a single image. The image is used in a classic way, it is big enough to stand out on the newsstand.
Main cover line       This is very large - taking up almost a quarter of the magazine cover. 
Cover Lines       Cover lines are distributed around the main image without detracting from it too much. A mistake often made with cover lines is that they run over an image that has a lot of color changes, rendering the words invisible.
Left third       The left third of the magazine cover is vital for sales in shops where the magazine is not shown full-frontage. The title must be easily recognizable in a display of dozens of competitors. The start of the masthead is important here, as are short cover lines that are easy to read Bar code Standard bar code used by retailers.
Selling line       Short, sharp description of the title's main marketing point or perhaps setting out its editorial philosophy

Student will create a realistic magazine cover using:
*            individual Black & White or Color photograph
*            graphic design layout principles
*            typography styles
*            color & visual image psychology

The magazine cover will contain the following:
*            The magazine cover design will be an imagined periodical and be appropriate for the classroom, you create the Title and theme.
*            Identify yourself on the magazine cover by first and last name in a story title or photo of yourself.
*            Make up the title, story subtitles and any other identifying features (price, volume, barcode, date)

STEP 1. Magazine Cover Dummy by hand
Select a magazine title and individual photo of yourself and draw a "Dummy" or blue-print plan on an 8.5 X 11 inch plain white paper. Refer to the references above for selecting your layout format, type style, and color application. Use colored pencils or markers to color in your magazine dummy. Turn in your magazine dummy to Ms. J. for approval.

STEP 2. Images
You have to be the photographer or the images you use except for images of yourself

STEP 3. Photoshop Design
Using the Adobe Photoshop software create and print your magazine cover:
*            Open Adobe Photoshop. Under the File Menu click on "New." Create an 8.5 X 11 inch canvas at 100 dpi resolution. Fill the canvas with background color of your appropriate choice.
*            Open your image. Make any adjustments: Levels, Size, Erasing, etc. Use the move tool to place your photos on the cover or Select (Apple key-A) Copy (Apple key-C) and Paste (Apple key-V) your image onto the magazine cover background (you won’t be able to move it around with this option).
*            Think of borders vs. no borders, add bar code, price, date, etc.
*            Select the "T" in the toolbox and type in your titles and teasers. To move the text, select the arrow in the top right box of the toolbox.
*            Be prepared to identify the Type style, type category and your reasoning for the choices you made (I liked it or it was just what I was looking for won’t work here)
*            Be aware of spacing.  Flush right or flush left, not both.  Centering of article titles is rarely used.

Photo Retouching

This is my final product for the Photo Retouching assignment. This project was one of the harder assignments we've gotten this semester. I eventually got the hang of using some of the Photo Shop tools like clone and blur.  I had some troubles with the guy's arm and his eyes, but, I'm pretty proud of how it turned out.
