However, if you have a long shot of someone on their own it could symbolize loneliness. Therefore I’ll be sure to take into consideration the different camera techniques when taking my photos for my magazine.

Psychographics & Demographics

These are going to help me to find my target audience and make sure I’m putting relevant stuff on my magazine to my genre.
