My Image That Uses Mise En Scene To Make Meaning

Made with Padlet


This is a mood board of certain images which to me reflect the genre ‘POP’. As you can see from this selection of photos, showing makeup, locations, body language etc, I interpret pop as a very bright and colorful genre. Generally pop music will be joyful and energetic therefore the photos which I think link to pop the best are the ones in which reflect this. It is important for all the photos in this mood board to display the same emotion and vibe as they are all expressing my opinion of pop.

This mood board is key to helping with my understanding of music genres and the importance of all elements within them. When creating my music magazine which will be focused upon the genre pop I need to think about multiple elements like the make-up and hairstyle of my model, the chosen body language and location for my photo shoot aswell as specially chosen props and costumes. Each of these things need to be chose to fit with the genre pop so that they all link together and it is clear to my audience what genre my music magazine is trying to portray.

Post-it notes

These images were our impersonation of photos which represent the genre ‘POP’. They reflect the positive emotions associated with the genre. When creating these photos we focused upon using bright colored costumes as this links in with the bright colors in our mood board. When I did some audience research people generally described the genre pop as ‘energetic’ and ‘young’. Others said that they associated the genre with ‘fun’ therefore when doing our photoshoot we made sure to try and convey these emotions through our photographs.

The bright pink colors and sunglasses give off a fun vibe along with the positive facial expressions which display happy connotations to the audience. We also made sure that the lighting for our photoshoot was appropriate so we chose to use natural bright sunlight as dim lighting would not have worked to convey the positivity the rest of our elements were trying to show.

Focusing forward

By researching into the genre ‘POP’ and creating a mood board displaying all the elements which I link with that genre helped me understand the importance of making my music magazine link in with my chosen genre. Doing my own photo shoot also helped me extend my understanding by putting this into practice, I knew that it was important to think about each individual element in order for the whole image to work as a whole.
