I found the schedule pretty tough going and have a little work to do which I have left. I need to ensure I leave enough time to complete the work and allow for some errors to occur in the process.
Research and planning
I have learnt a lot about music magazines as I researched into them and have been able to gain inspiration from looking at the variety of magazines out there. I feel I could produce a good piece of work through my research that I have done.
I struggled when first using photoshop and have now came to know the basics of it, but I feel I will need to learn how to use it better before I won't require any help. Also, I am starting to get better with using the camera and exploring all the facilities it has.
