To get more inspiration to for my final project I decided to do some research on ESPN’s website, and google to see what their covers look like an how I can take inspiration from that.
This first thing I’ve noticed that I don’t have in my photos is the model’s personality. I think I’ve reflected great energy in my photos but not necessarily the actual personality of my model, Angel. I think what I need to do is to come up with some ideas for covers and think about the way I want to do design the cover in a way that shows who she is.
Looking at the ads for ESPN magazine I noticed that a lot of them have high contrasting colors and big sans serif typefaces. A lot of them have darker background which I shot on the product table with white so I think I would want to reshoot some of them on the black background. I do like the pops of color that they have in these shoots which I could use the gels to do.
Overall these research is helping me a lot to hone in on my project and see what I still need to make it great!
