1. The social group represented in my magazine consists of 16 to 25 yearold females. My magazine is more specific to independent females with an edge. My aim is to move away from the stereotypical glamorousfemale perspective, although there are still hints of that glamour.On my cover I have left the background blank to show boldness and sophistication, yet to create contrast, I have given the artist a big messy hairstyle. Her darker makeup is also contrasted to the creamy girly ruffled top she is wearing.
2. My DPS photo shows more of the dark edgy side. The black dresslooks very rock chick yet the colourful patterns give it a glamorousfeel. The hairstyle looks quite punk rock due to the shaven sideillusion. Overall the background is dark and gloomy but this time thebright makeup is in contrast.This appeals to girls that like glamour yet tend to have a more darkrebellious side. It also represents a very experimental phase which many teenagers and young adults go through. 3. This is the image from my moodboard that Im comparing to my own cover photo. 4.

Although I have used the same overall position and idea of thephoto,I have changed the details to make it more personal to my magazine.I chose to stick with the more basic qualities to head me into the right direction before adding details.I want my audience to feel elegant and mature therefore I tried to stickwith mature themes, e.g. plain background. 8. Similar dress top style which represents a more mature social group since it would not be appropriate for younger girls to dress this way.This is the image from my moodboard that Im comparing to my own DPS photo. 9.

The celebrity image is known to look very glamorous and perfect. They arenormally very touched up and airbrushed to look unattainable. They have acertain image they must present and carry. This includes slimfigures, flawless skin and glossy hair.I have shown this in my magazine by airbrushing and editing myphotos, correcting any flaws as I go along. I have stuck to the celebrityguideless of perfection and gave the whole overall photo a touch ofatmosphere by giving the photo tone and saturation.These images tend to appeal to mid teen to mid twenties and sometimeseven older as what the celebrities look like is seen as the norm of how anyfemale should look.Women often by these magazine to see what celebrities are wearing orlooking like therefore they can adapt the same style.
