The battle between blog and magazine

In this second part of my posts, I’ll be comparing the blog from the first post to a magazine. The magazine that I’ve chosen to compare it to is a video maker magazine. 

With this magazine, I feel like it trying to talk to multiple people and in a more neutral tone and just trying to give the info in the quickest way possible. One thing that I like about the magazine to Matt Scott’s blog is the fact that the font of the magazine is big enough for you to read even with zooming in or having to go into the post.  Something that is really nice about the magazine is that it doesn’t take long to read something from it. Another nice thing about the magazine is that they only use things that they have made so that when it comes to giving credits they don’t have to do anything but the blog has to tell everything that they used and give credit to the original poster or creator.

A downside to the magazine over the blog is that there is no video that can accompany the text to show something that the writer is writing about but have to tell you to check out a video or not have any. One thing I didn’t like about this magazine is the fact that the images that went with the post were only in black and white and they were made like drawings instead of pictures taken to show what they were talking about. The magazine felt like it was written by multiple people and was speaking to a group of people instead of just one person and trying to make a connection with that person. It was also just trying to tell you the facts and doesn’t seem to really have a personality to it. This can be taken both ways because if you just looking for facts then the magazine is better but if you want a person to use analogies the blog would be a better pick. The magazine does use some multimedia elements but only at the end of the article just to send you to their social media like Youtube, Instagram and Twitter, but it tries to keep you to the magazine and what it’s trying to say 

In my personal opinion, I think that the blog is better because it has more of a character but the magazine is just trying to tell you the facts, the quickest way and no alternatives. Thank you for reading this post.

Searching for blogs

In this post, I will be talking about Matt Scott’s [Hobart Based Cinematographer] (http://mattscottvisuals.com/) blog. His blog talks about things that are based around cinematography. The tutorials help be a better cinematographer. He writes about how he feels about a topic like what it’s like to watch anything that was filmed. He tries to figure out what they used and has fun doing it.

I’m not the biggest fan of the front page because there is a lot of text and it is really small and it seems to be really long even when it isn’t that much.  Also, the picture and video are really big in comparison to the text but that is also really nice because you can just watch the video without going fullscreen.  The theme of the blog isn’t that eye checking and is very boring combined with the small text. One problem I have with the main page it the fact that the sidebar is more eye-catching than the main posts. There is also the fact that although the title to the post is big enough to read, you have to go into the post to read the full post.

His blog is also really nice because if you are more interested in him, he has links to other websites where you can view some of his work. There is also a sidebar which if you want to see the older posts you can view them by month with the year besides it. He has posts from May 2012 up to October 2018. His tutorials are also really helpful for the information he provides and the wide array of things like lighting and also finding videos of others who he thinks are good for any cinematographer.  The sidebar also has a lot of things besides the months and years to see posts. You can subscribe to the blog by putting your email in and get notified when he posts. There is a link to see videos that he has for download and if you’re looking for a certain post you can use the search bar. Then there is a list of the newest post after the search bar. One thing I find interesting about the blog is that he has a big banner as soon as you open the blog.  

Overall, I think his blog looks really professional and is put together really well. 

Thank you for reading.
