What Makes A Great Photo And Layout?

For our front cover of our school magazine we are required to put on a medium shot image for the main photo.Photos look good in various way however, for a school magazine cartain things wouldnt look right.I think that the key to a good photo is: Lighting, camera angle and the mise-en-scene of the image. The lighting should not be to bright but it should show a bright glow on the model if thats what purpose it should fit. The camera angles should change as depending on what magazine thta photo is for should change that camera angle.Like thia the mise-en-secen also depends on the purpose of the magazine. or my magazine i chose grey, white and blck or the colours on the models clothes as i think this goes well with my magazines colour scheme, this is because it make the model stand out but doesnt clash to much.

An example of a good photo

An example of a bad photo
The good photo manipulated the light to complapent her body language which makes for a good picture.Her body language is very approprate for fashion.The bad photo is very blury and only shows half of his body.

The Layout
The layout of a magazien will change acording to what magazine genre it is for example, a rock magazine will be on edge and wild where as an interlectual magazine would be more organised. For a good layout on a magazine i think you need and image where there is lots of text so it doesnt look to full of chunks of text. I also think it should be organised however not boring as it could look messy if there is no organisation.
