Here are the best shots from our photoshoot.

  • We chose images 0309, 0311, 0312 and 0320 because of the strong contrast in the lighting. We felt like the lighting gave these images gave an edgy and alternative vibe, and were good enough quality to be edited easily.
  • Images 0336, 0339 and 0403 were chosen because of the ghost effect that was created by the blur. This effect fitted well into our desired theme of monsters or the otherworldly.
  • The orange lighting of images 0358 to 0367 is why we chose these images. The lighting gives a mysterious aura to the photos, with the dim lighting also creating a grainy quality which we felt matched with the edginess of our theme.

Here are the rest of the photographs which we deemed to be not as good. This was because they were out of focus, had bad lighting or the model was making the wrong expression for our cover.

Feedback from teacher

  • Image on front page is too grainy but likes the gradient of the shadows
  • Likes the cross – thinks it gives a powerful image
  • Likes the symbolism of the cross and the broken mirror
  • Quality of photos need improving – maybe through another shoot
  • Not sure what the last photo is supposed to be of – needs changing
  • Positioning of the group name needs to be changed
  • Track list could do with bullet points or numbers for the tracks

Targets for Improvement

  • Have another photo shoot and get new photos for the inner right and back sides
  • Edit the track listing to make it stand out more
  • Choose another photo for the front cover and edit it accordingly

Digipak – Moodboard

Here is the mood board for our artist, forevermore.

For our mood board we wanted to create a red and black colour scheme with some gold accents. These colours include cultural codes of anger, love, darkness and grandeur which is what we want to convey about our artist. Our mood board has lots of Gothic images including church windows and crosses, which matches with our stars’ edgy and dark persona. The font of our band name is also in a gothic text to tie together this theme. The mood board has a slight focus around eyes which is something we want to incorporate into our digipak, as it hints at a more mysterious side.

Mood boards are important as they help to create a specific idea of what the product could look like and gives an overall direction for it to follow. We will use our mood board throughout the creation process to help us finalize the design and to use as a guide for the final product.
