FINAL PROTOTYPE #1
TADA! Here’s the first page of our final prototype! Looks awesome right! :D Even though we had really limited time to finish up everything and to work on more interactivity, I am really proud of my group!! Besides that, we have gotten pretty positive remarks from our ‘play-testing’ sessions! :)
Artistic Approach: The Corporate World
Fortunately our project went on pretty smoothly with little hiccups, just more and more enhancements to bring in depth to the final prototype. We took some photos after our first presentation during tutorial and as mentioned previously, we had pretty good feedbacks as well as constructive comments. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the second presentation during our last tutorial but I have...
Initial Idea: The Corporate World
After many rounds of brainstorming, my group has finally come up with a concept to work on for our final project. We had several interesting ideas however we were limited by techniques and time constraints, which were really such a pity. Therefore we decided to approach this project in the simplest manner, to keep it concise. The theme of corporate world is pretty much over-used or cliched, but...
It was quite a confusion after Jing dropped the bomb about our ‘untitled’ final interactive project for this module. No one in CNM has done it before and even Jing herself was new to it. However, I am looking forward to this project though there is no previous standards to follow and we have to start everything from scratch. Really challenging!
oh my holy mama! I swear my eyes bleed doing assignment 3.. T-T Here’s my final product for my tutorial critique! Totally not satisfied because I find that my techniques do not match with what I wanted it to be :( Hais. It was so difficult to find the appropriate photographs to tweak with too. Double HAIS. D: I was inspired to do a replica of the famous Iwo Jima picture but I guess...
Tutorial #5 : Photoshop Crash Course
In preparation to Assignment 3, we had a pretty intensive crash course on Photoshop. Jing had gone through some of the fundamental techniques such as layer mask and smart object. Personally, I have done a couple of works with Photoshop and Illustrator as I took several design-based modules in the past semester. However Jing’s tutorial came in handy in refreshing my memory. It is very...
Assignment 2: Keitai Phenomenon
Back to the days when I was in secondary school, you are considered trendy if you own a handphone. It was a common sight to see students sms-ing under their school desk during lessons and making sure they are not caught by teachers or worse, principal! Well, technology has advanced and the handphones (that used to function simply just for making calls, sending short messages, making reminders and...
Lecture Exercise: Montage/Collage
“Leaving” by Barry Kite I really like Barry Kite’s work because his work tells a rebellious story. Coming from a literary background, Kite, via his compelling titles, seeks to establish a dialogue/tension between his words and images.
Tutorial #3: Extraordinary out of the ordinary
Jing shared some thought-provoking issues on aesthetics of photography and it set me thinking for quite a few days. She asked if we still stand on the notion of taking photos “as it is” in this era where post-processing is so widely available, easy-to-use and capable of enhancing our photos in ways that we did not imagine before. Well, I believe that it would be best to present the...
Tutorial #2: Critiques on Assignment 1
Assignment 1 is graded primarily on the technical skills, namely to take photos of Deep Depth of Field, Shallow Depth of Field, Motion Blur and Motion Freeze. Definitely, as what I expected, it was really easy to fulfill the technical requirements but I really had a difficult time taking photos that I felt confident with. Even up till the tutorial, I was still not happy with the photos I had for...
Tutorial 1 - Panning
It is certainly a pleasure to have Lionel as our guest tutor again. Unfortunately I was not too prepared for the tutorial - I did not bring my DSLR along! :( But it was interesting experience as I was forced to take photos and explored the camera capabilities of my humble handphone for the tutorial exercise. Lionel continued to share many useful tips and technicalities about photography and the...
