Preliminary Task (Cover)

My Cover Sample:

My "Car and Person" Examples

My "Two or More" Cars Examples

My "Single Vehicle" Cover Examples

My Samples: After I have analyzed and viewed the different options for a possible automobile magazine cover, it is now time to incorporate what I have learned about the images and take my own photographs.

In the first example, we have the standard magazine cover that displays all of its vehicles from different side profiles and it is the typical magazine I was imagining. The second magazine example, however, completely surprised me. Instead of following the rules in the first example, it decided to have all the cars situated and facing in a particular pattern. It cut off 4 out of its 5 cars to make them look as if they were poking into the camera which is very interesting. The third magazine example has the same concept of cutting a car in the picture, but this time it did so with a focus on only two cars and making it seem as if they were racing.
