Print Media communicates meaning

This poster analysis is a perfect example of how every picture tells a story. I had learnt this by decoding my choice of picture. I learnt about how to attract the audience, and this helped me to understand how to use relevant pictures, fonts and colours for the purpose of the target audience.

As you can see, I picked up on the significant font, and most obviously, the picture in the centre. When deconstructing the image, I know that when I create my own music magazine I know how to use the correct colours, images and fonts to make it relevant to my target audience.

So.. Hello Media Studies!

In the next two years of my media studies course, I am hoping to learn a bit about different technical skills such as camera work, Photoshop, Premier Pro and many other elements.  Although I do have basic media skills such as blogging skills, computer skills and using Google, I am excited to gain more skills that will enable me to produce work that is at the best of my ability.

Other skills include transferable skills such as,  communication, group work, analysis and time keeping. Using these skills will assure me success for what is to come. Hopefully I will be able to use these skills both inside and outside of media. These skills will also benefit me in many different ways as media is all around us and most of us use everyday.

So…. I’m a ‘Media Prosumer!’

I use media everyday. It is a huge part of my life as it is most people of all ages. I tend to use all of these types of media everyday, some more frequent than others. As you can see, they all fit into different types of media from all different genres. Media is everywhere and will continue to influence many people’s lives all over the world.

I now know why different media is used and why it is put into different categories. I also understand the technical words used to describe different categories of media. This will help me when I design my own media. I would like to catch the target audience’s eye, and maintain their attention. When I make my music magazine, there will be elements of entertainment, education, a way that people can express their personal identity.
