Crafts and Media : Photography – Evaluation

Hi,

I feel like i have done the best possible work i could have done to create two separate CD Covers.

But now i have completed them both i have come to a conclusion that when creating your own CD cover it is much easier then trying to recreate an existing piece of album artwork because no matter what you do, for example you cant get the lighting on the pictures right or something isn’t just relating to the cover. That’s why i have nominated that my own personal CD Cover is better then the U2 Cover which i tried really hard at because its a band i love and i wouldn’t of chose that iconic album cover because i didn’t love and want to do a exact replica of that cover. Credit to each and every person who creates albums covers.

Things the i could do to improve both CD Covers next time –

Maybe have inside artwork of band or solo artist

Pick another band to portray that i don’t like.

Thanks

Crafts and Media : Photography – CD Cover 2

Hi,

I was struggling to gather ideas for my own CD Cover but then i found a image on the internet that sparked a idea into my mind.

I  didn’t save the image which i should have but i was a woman’s face on the front cover with the text on the right of her face. So i had a idea, since i am already taking photos of myself for the U2 War cover i could just take a photo of my full face then cut it in half.

The idea is to half half of my face on the front cover then the other half of my face on the back this will obviously be separated by a spine with the name of the album and the record label on it.

Thanks

Crafts and Media: Photography – U2 War Cover

Hi,

As with this CD Cover before i started to take the photos i have decided to sketch out the CD Cover. Even though i have the picture in a previous post i just wanted to sketch it out so i have something to relate with later.

Original CD Cover :

U2_War_album_cover

Sketch of the full CD :

U2 War CoverAs you can see i am going to use a picture of myself with a wall effect background with U2 War running down the side like the original. On the back of the CD Cover if you did not know they just have the tracks on the back and then U2 War spiraling down like on the front cover with the barcode etc on the bottom.

Thanks

Crafts and Media : Photography – First CD Cover Design

Hi,

I thought before i start taking photos i will sit down and sketch out what i am thinking about how i will layout my first CD cover.

I sketched it out then scanned it, here it is :

My Front Cover

The CD is potraying my specialites as a solo artist. The title cover is Ross Barnett – Rise of Destiny and it has on the front cover half of my face with the title on the right and then on the back cover it will have the other half of my face with the tracks and how long they are on for. Down the spine they will be the title again with the label that will be my favourite label because they was the label of my favorite band and that is Island.

As you can see by the image the image of myself i have used is the same as the one that i have used in the U2 Cover, War. This is because im not a good drawer and these are only sketches and the real thing will be different.

Thanks

Crafts and Media : Photography – CD Cover 2

Hi,

Im having problems thinking of a idea for my CD cover but when i was researching this second CD cover which will be based on a band or solo artist, i picked up great ideas i could do because i will just copy of their cover because that is the task.

When Mark red out the assignment options out, with me being a big U2 fan i was thinking of numerous CD covers in my head and this one stuck out in my head.

U2_War_album_cover

U2 – War

This is a great example of a great band at their peak bringing out a simple but effective CD Cover, which also sold well.

Seen as i dont have a little boy to take a picture like the one in this, im just going to take a picture of myself and style it on how you can see on this front cover.

This CD cover will be in a blank CD with a break in the middle and a back cover aswell.

Thanks

Craft and Media – Photography – Assignment 2 Initial CD Cover Research

Hi,

When the assignment got given to us and the choices was :

  • Create album artwork for a CD
  • Environment Portraits

i chose the CD artwork because it was relevant to what i wanted to do and with being a music fan i already had inspiration in my head when Mark red out the assignment.

So in this post i have had a look at various album covers that caught my eye when browsing the web :
