Final Project Photography (DONE)

Final Project

FINAL PROJECT PHOTOGRAPHYFINAL PROJECT PHOTOGRRAHY

I was inspired by a music called Beyond our Dream. This music is about lifestyle.

In this picture, the door represents the darkness of hers thoughts. The wall cracks represents a lock, after she escapes from the darkness, in the end, the wall will crack. The hands represent the difficult life are always with us and never stop it since we born. She came out from the darkness since there is a lot of hands trying to drag her back to the darkness but she was not afraid and she dealt with it. Her face has 2 different colour lines which are red and blue. Red represent courage and hope as she never gives up even though it is difficult, thus,  it is a power when courage and hope contributes to a strong bond. Blue represent calm. Blue colors were chosen because the more experience she gets, the calmer she is. Her eyes tell a lot of stories that had happened to her.

SHOOTING PROCESS:

I was doing the makeup of my model, the makeup was quite fun which I liked it.

Start shooting

It takes me a long time when I take photos of my model because I kept using different

equipment of lights which are soft light, hard light, and spotlight.

PROCESS EDITING USING PHOTOSHOP

 

I started with cropping my model and hands using a pen tool. I adjusted my hands using black and white.

After finish cropping, I chose the cracked wall as my background. I took this photo on the roof of our campus. I was also editing the brightness and contrast of the pictures.

I chose the faded wall I took it in my campus as well.

Screenshot_15

I only want the texture of the photos, so I cropped the others and kept the textures I want as my parts of the background.

Screenshot_17

2 different wall textures were combined.

After combining the 2 differents texture of the walls, I realised that the textures is not enough for me to express what I want, so I used the brush tool to do the crack effect and also I adjusted the brightness to make it darker and slightly reduced the contrast as well.

I was playing with the adjustments such as black and white, hue and saturation, brightness and contrast, levels and the others. It is quite fun but it takes a long time for me to adjust everything because I am a beginner, I am not familiar with these tools and adjustments, so I had to try.

Finalize Editing photography

FINAL PROJECT PHOTOGRAPHY

I was done! The editing photography was quite challenging because I was still new to it.

At first, I thought photoshop is easy because I just need to crop photos that I want and edit a bit photos then I am done. But, no, it was so difficult after I started to use it. I am a beginner so I have no idea how to use it, which part I am going to start to edit and crop and what kinds of tools I need to use. I was so angry at first because I do not know how to use it and I redid my assignment which was wasting my time. But in the end, I learned from tutorials on youtube. I am getting to know how to use it. I am so happy I am done with my final photography assignment in the end. Now, I am enjoying to use Photoshop for editing. I will keep on practicing to improve my photo editing skills.

EXTREME PARK

THERE ARE SOME AREAS ARE PROPOSED IN THE EXTREME PARK.

MOODBOARD

INTRODUCTION :

THE STRUCTURE OF THE URBAN LANDSCAPE IS INSPIRED BY THE PLANNING AND ACTIVITY OF AN EXTREME PARK. THE FOCUSES TARGET USERS ARE MAINLY FOR THE GROUP OF TEENAGERS AND YOUNG ADULTS WHO ARE ADVENTUROUS. ENVIRONMENT SPACE ORDER AND PLANNING ALLOW TEENAGERS AND YOUNG ADULTS TO EXPERIENCE AND EXPLORE THE OUTDOOR GAME WITH VARIOUS CHALLENGES. THE EXTREME PARK IS PROPOSED TO BE LOCATED AWAY FROM THE CITY AND CLOSE TO THE ENVIRONMENT.

I WRITE THE NUMBERS ON MODELLING CARD WHEN I DECIDE TO APPLY IT ON MODELLING BOARD. THEN, I WILL FOLLOW THE SHAPES OF MODELLING CARD AND CUT IT ON THE MODELLING BOARD.

 

AFTER I APPLIED IT TO THE MODELLING BOARD, I ADD TEXTURES ON MY WALL AND OVERHEAD PLANES. I ADD SOME ACRYLIC SHEET THAT REPRESENTS TO GLASS IN ORDER TO ALLOW THE LIGHT PASS THROUGH.

50% COMPLETE

75% COMPLETE, THE STRUCTURES OF CLIMBING AREAS WERE BUILD UP WITH MODELLING CARD.

FINAL PRESENTATION BOARD

I FINALLY DONE WITH MY FINAL PROJECT! TIME GONE FAST WHEN ALL OF US DOING THE FINAL PROJECT BECAUSE NO ENOUGH TIME TO USE. IT WAS TIRING BECAUSE WHENEVER WE CUT IT WRONG OR THE SIZE OF THE  STRUCTURE IS INCORRECT, WE HAVE TO REDO EVERYTHING. THIS FINAL PROJECT IS REALLY CHALLENGING ME TO THINK OF SOLUTIONS. WE ALSO HAVE TO USE OUR IMAGINATION TO BUILD UP THE MODEL. I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND THIS PROJECT AT FIRST, BUT WHEN I LEARNED MORE IN DEPTH, I UNDERSTOOD IT BETTER.

CTX Semester Final Reflection

This will be my last post for the subject of CTX. I am quite sad because, in the end, we are all going to go our own separate ways. When I decided to choose design as my target, my parents disagreed at first because they wanted me to study business and they considered me will change the another course in the end because I am not in patience for everything. I agreed with the way they said because when I do not have patience I will give up easily. However, I want to tell them I am becoming more patience than before without giving up. I didn’t give up in the end because I really enjoyed with a busy life. I felt happy every time I have done with my assignments.

People kept thinking our FID course is easy and those students who get A were not supposed to go to FID course because they considered the design is useless which could not help them to have a bright future and they should have the best choice for them to study except design. But, I wanted to tell them that everyone has their own choice, nobody can control them. If other people force you to choose others course which you don’t like it, do you feel happy? If it was me,  I will not be happy for my entire life because I am not interested with others except design. I am so proud to be a FID student because I learned a lot of things, I had learned how to do a catapult, innovate kinetic mural (stickman), do printmaking, drawing, build a hornbill bird using PVC pipe, build a panda using metal wire, make a video and others. Everything is not easy but we did it! Although it is tiring and stressful sometimes we enjoyed it.  We feel tired, when we have a lot of assignment which needs to spend a long time to do, there is no time for us to rest. We feel stressful when we have no clue on what we should do for next. This is how self-exploration obtained.

During the entire course, I am improving to be independent and confident. I experienced new things that I never experienced before. I learn a lot of new things about myself which I never had before.

I learned to be acceptance. Acceptable, when there is a lot of assignment which is tiring, exhausting, and stress that makes me feel want to give up for sometimes but I tried to accept it because no pain no gained. Without suffering,  how we are going to survive in complicated society?

I learned to be patience. Patient with all things.  I become more patient when I do my assignment. Thanks to my friends who always tell me to try to be patience when I do my assignment. Without patience, you cannot do work efficiently.

I learned to be more communicative. I communicate with my friends in English. During the first day, I am worried about myself because I can’t even speak a whole sentence and my grammar is very weak. I don’t even dare to talk with them because I am so embarrassed with my poor English. But, now, I am so happy because my English is improving which is better than before, I can communicate with my friends.  I know my English still not good enough so I will keep learning English without giving up. I believe I can do it.

I learned to be appreciating. Thanks, all of my lecturers who share a lot of knowledge to me and helps me to understand what is right and wrong. Thanks to all of my friends always help me to improve my English and do correction of my grammar, I know that when all of you read my essay and help me correct the grammar, you guys get suffered for every second moment (LAUGHED) but all of you still willing to help me, trust me with sharing your mind, encourage me that I can do it well  and dare to scold me even I know that is not right. I am really stubborn for sometimes… WELL, OKAY, EVERY SINGLE DAY. Thanks anyway.

I really learned a lot during the semester. I can’t write all that I learned during the semester because there is no enough time for me now, I still have to do my other assignments. The assignments are challenging, however, this is the only way how we grew up without depends on others.  When life becomes difficult, this is how we change ourselves to be stronger.

CTX (Week 18)

It had a lot of fun when we were editing the video with cooperation. We keep editing the video to make it funny. All of us do work together in the studio in order to finish editing the video before the submission date. Our teamwork made the process become faster. Prank video still in the progress. Well, I don’t know how to continue my writing, there is nothing much to write because we only need to edit the video for this week then we were done.

Thanks for reading my blog

Studio Lighting Practice ( week 18 )

Today, we had a light practice in the photography studio. We divided into 3 group which is chosen by Mr. Martin, he gave us 2 reference photography for each group.

There were 2 references to photos below.

First references

studio-portrait-photography-by-anna-nowakowska-dublin-ireland-720x667

Second references3920b14b8907f5aaa73f5978dfe85a33.

We need to follow the references on how they act and take photos of the models. From this practice, we learned about the studio lighting on how to use the soft light, hard light, spot light and also flashlight.

_DSC7246

We tried every lights equipment and take photos of the model in order to find out which light did the reference photo used. We found out there was soft light we took of the model which is similar to the reference. The soft light formed shadow with a gradual transition from light to dark. You can see the photo above that shows the gradient from dark to light.

_DSC7297

We took this photo for so long because we kept using different equipment of lights which are soft light, hard light, flashlight, and spotlight. Finally, we found out the solution that was used the spotlight and tried different positions from middle top to left top. The photo was taken from the left top by using spotlight. The spotlight is a powerful stage lighting instrument that we basically use for performance. It is a strong light that illuminates for the small area only. The model was in the spotlight. I edited this photo to be more exposure.

There were some photos you can see below. We had tried different positions and instruments as well just wanted to find out the similarity of the reference photos.
