PentaxMX

My first photographs using an old SLR, Pentax MX. I was worried all these photos would be either over or under exposed, thankfully my shutter-time judgement was correct. Using a fixed wide angle lens with a completely open aperture was a good first choice, this gave me enough light to play with. I love the warm and green colours produced by this film, the picture inst completely sharp but gives a soft feel.

Counter Magazine

For this project I had to do research into old magazines that were iconic and different in the day. Our brief was to create a front cover and two sets of double page spreads, the content had to include information about a guest artist for the magazine. I chose Paul Rand for my artist because of his simplicity and truly amazing colour schemes. I overcame technical issues such as placing text around objects, which I found solutions on the internet. I can use what I’ve learnt fluently for the future. I investigated the composition, layout and colours of the magazine ‘The Face’ for my main research as-well as looking into ‘V Magazine’ and ‘ID Magazine’.
