Media Evaluation 2

How does your media product represent particular social groups?
When we were planning and taking our photos we had to think carefully about how these images represent our charity and the issue. We wanted to show what our charity was doing for the horses and how they are happy in our care. It's a convention of charity websites to represent the social group/animals they are helping in this way. Some people might expect that you would see shocking pictures of the issue to persuade people to help but we found through our research that that charities only seemed to do this in their advertising, not on the sites. As we wanted to follow conventions, we too used photography which denoted happy and healthy animals in our care. Below is a slideshow which shows a few of our photos we took for the website:
