Personal Statement: I am a cheerful person who is ready to meet challenges every day. I just graduate with an associate degree in advertising design, I like to study and learn different things with can explore my creativity. Also I enjoy arts and I will like to try new things every day!

I still remember the first class of the photography was not here in HKIED, I learn photography from Mr. Robert Tran in Hong Kong Community College, he was a great master photography, and he had taught me many things, about the light, shutter speed, aperture and so on. However, I didn’t get a good grade on his class because of too many good student, so I decided to take a photograph class again. From the course outline, I have to say they are so many similarity but I will try my best anyway. However I am the person who need many time to take a good picture, so I was not satisfy with the first round class work, and I have the lack of idea in IED, so I went home and took the following picture.

Class excise one: I’m satisfy the picture I took from my home town, I like the mood of the picture by using different white balance and I like the low angle of the leave and bamboo door, however the lecture might not agree with me about the framing, it might a good start but I will work more.

Some picture of Lau Fau Shan:

The second class excise was to take four pictures about shutter speed, I went to Hung Hom to took the pictures about car lights and long exposure, and I know that was quite boring, people have seen it many time, however I don’t have time to take other pictures , so I just have to turn that in. I’m not satisfy of this set of picture, so do the lecturer, therefore I decide to take an other picture while I still have time. And I got to be careful of the texture, story, composition and color. And I went to Lau Fau Shan (Fisherman harbor in Hong Kong ,Yuen Long ). I like there a lot, it’s give me lot of inspiration when I’m there. Also in there they have the most beautiful sunset in Hong Kong, lots and lots of photographer go there to take pictures, and if you interested in photography you should come too.

Some picture of Sam Mun Tsai : f5- f32

I have told you before I can’t take good picture in limited time, because that will makes me nervous and I can’t see things in details, so the first round is not good enough and the next day I went to Sam Mun Tsai for a visit and find some inspiration. I was grow near fisherman harbor, therefore Sam Mun Tsai makes me relax, so this time I do satisfy with my second round picture as follow. I like the tone, texture and color of this set of picture, I use around f5 to f22 to take the picture and is good enough to see the different between. And this is a good start and I will find some more interesting stuff to take and using different angle and aperture.

Some picture of Black and White also the Back lighting :

I guess black and white is the most difficult type of picture to take, since there is lack of colors, the audience would emphasis the contrast, composition and story of the black and white picture, therefore the most important part which is finding the right object to take the picture. And the back lighting one is hard as well, because we need to find some good light source in the clouding weather. And I took the picture in the lower ground flour, I like the angle and framing of the picture as well as the warm colors tone.

Picture of me in different lighting:

Today we learn how to use studio lighting to take portraits by Mr. Wong. It is quit interesting. we had try different kind of light settings such as one or two soft box lighting, 45 degree of lighting, reflection light, the angle and placement of the light and shooting different movement of the hairs. Overall, I think studio lighting of portrait is about playing the relationship between light and shadows, and then we can use shadow to creative illusion, besides we need to create a focus point in the portraits, probably the eyes of mouth of the model, so that people can find interest of the model in a quick look.

Light painting:

I was thinking to do the steal wood kind of stuff after class, because I found that it is very interesting, however I can’t do it in Hong Kong, first I don’t know where to buy the steal wood, the hard wear store didn’t have it, second I don’t think that is legal to do it in Hong Kong, because that kind of stuffs it’s simpler like playing firework. Anyway, I was in hall, and playing will the light painting at night, and I used light to highline my face couples of time, and it’s turn out quite nice. And I went to Mong Kok yesterday to found some inspiration of the photo essay, I took the pictures of the elderly who was picking up the paper in the trash bin, and some elderly was begging people to give them money, but it seems like people was ignored them, probably people had see these many time, but they don’t find them in needs, so they won’t help them.

Personal Statement:

Today is an other Photoshop lesson, and it is quite impressive, because I never though that Photoshop would be so useful like this, and after the class I did went to the library to search some Photoshop book, and I found out Photoshop is more than just editing picture, it can work will Dreamweaver, or Flash to make website.

I try to make an easy website, basically, the rules of making website is quite simple, however if you want to make ones that is beautiful, than its require lots of design skills, and if you want some interactive stuff, than you need to cooperate will flash, but the most difficult part is writing program to activate the website, if you know all the codes and program, you can make a trading equipment in a website, but right now, I can only make very basic website, kicking the bottom and flipping pages.

Making a video looks very easy, you can make a video by using cellphone, however, if you study harder, making movie or video can be very deep and meaningful, you can take three or four years course in college. So I was doing some research online to learn how to make a good movie, well here is my conclusion, I thing making a good movie require a good sense of art, you need to know how to balances, choose the right color, good framing, good angle, good characters and of course a good story or meaning behind your movie, more, there are some meaning between each angle, such as low angle will make the character become more powerful, and high angle will make the character looks unimportance, besides there are different methodologies like motachie, pending etc. It seem there are so many things and rules to learn, but you can always watch more movies to get you inspiration before you start.

After last lesson I was asked to make a small movie so we can edit it today, if you never make a movie before you will never know how hard it was, and how all the angle works especially when we don’t have the special effectstunt . When I edited it, I actually laugh, because I look so silly in the movie, and I was always to be an actress. In the editing process, I had learn some before in the community college, however, editing is not my favorite part, I would weather to be an actress, but Pr is something you can’t learn without, but few lesson and practice is hard to become an expert in Pr, you can only learn few basic editing in class, but most of the time, you need to practice by yourself and buy a adobe Pr hand book, but I found a quick easy way, which is watching YouTube, because there are lots of Pr expert in internet, you can learn lot of things through them, if you are confuse, you can always watch and edit you assignment as the same time ha-ha. And that is how I learn Pr.

The coming assignment is making a four minutes video, I’m pair with King King and Cathy, and the assignment need to be related in social issues, and we are thinking about Hong Kong at first, however, there are so many ideas, and we don’t like it too much, because it’s boring, some social issue got repeat all the time, there for we spend a weeks to come up an idea also the story board. We tried to make this movie in a new way , since we all wanted to make something new, therefore, we decided to film it in an abstract . And the final idea is “Concrete Wall”, the meaning of concrete wall is stand for Hong Kong, and we use a girl to link up all the clips, although the movie is quite abstract but audience can feel the mood and through all the visual elements, and we pick a song that it fit the movie very well, hopeful it will look good.

I have to say I did scarify a lot for this four minute movie, although it is a four minute video but we use more than three days to shoot all the shots, and I look like a crazy woman in the street, everybody was looking at me, beside, there was few shots that I need to be halfway naked, and I promise myself that it will be the last time that I have to scarify so much. After shooting we spend two days to edit the video, and we keep edit it until sun rise, it was tired, but we are all happy, because I have the best teammate ever, we supported each other. You may not agree with us of the final video, but at least we are all happy about our work.
