Type 2: digital photography
In this video, I showed the process of tidying the desk in a high shooting angle in order to give a wide view of what is going on. In the colour, I first toned the photo into black and white and then came with more and more colour in the photo as the desk has been tidier and tidier, to bring a visual effect. I have used props in my video to create a messy look of my desk. And after finishing the cleaning, photos in the end told the audience that “mission complete” in order to give a signal to end the story.
As I created the book title ” Lose in Los Angeles”, I was thinking of a misery novel which happened in Los Angeles. It is like happened in the dark side of the angel city. In the process of creating this book cover, I used a typeface commonly applied in graffiti because it is one of the most significant culture in L.A. On the other hand, the background I’ve used is in square in different colours. It virtually created grids for the picture. I put both the book title, the author name and the outline of the human body in alignment, which to make it look more tidy.

In many cases of realizing creative thoughts, the fear of judgment is always a significant deterrent. I do have an experience which faced the fear of judgment while creating something new. It happened in my high school when we were having a school fair. Everything class had to prepare for a booth and my class was still deciding what to do. I was first thinking of making a haunted house, while most of the classmates wanted to create a booth drawing Henna, like the year before. I didn’t think it was a good idea at that time, but due to the fear of judging by my classmates, I did not speak out my own opinion. At last they chose to do the Henna booth again and the result was not as good as the first year we made it.
Steve Jobs as the legendary co-founder of the Apple Co. created many incredible new technology, improved the life of people all over the world. Before he successfully turned computer from a government tools to personal use on business, people around him just did not believe he can do it, and judging him that was too ideological. But Jobs insisted to fight against conformity, he has the guts to challenge the existed facts and create new stuffs in order to make a better world. He did not defeated by the judgment from the people around him, and finally, he found his own electronic empire.

I chose to take this sketch note during the lecture of CRIM135. It went pretty well unexpectedly. However the lecturer has been talking a bit too quick so that I have to edit the sketch after the class and this is my work above.
