All work photos
I was trying to practice taking photos for the final projects . And also I wanted to make the images look professional.
I think that really good images because its showing of the dart board with people. I will using this image of final project.
Thinking ideas of empty on background
I wanted to show and take photos of practice nothing people on the background. Those images of background I want to do self-portrait will using those background. I was thinking of the self-portrait going to without people in it.
I visited Point Chevalier, I’m doing practice take photos of those images because I want to show how the communication of how to understand the Deaf Community. I wanted to show in each self-portraits the model could be signing one word . How I can add to the photo to help read the meaning behind it. I have taken lots of backdrop photos where the self-portraits are going to be. I wanted to do this with people in it. I was thinking about colour photos, I want to show the behind figure of composition and different angles.
I want to show emotional face cause its was happened to us Deaf community. First image, this face was sad cause some Deaf world has been stuck with hearing world because Deaf community didn’t felt want to involved with hearing world, we want to communicate easily with hearing world. Deaf world are more confident with deaf community because they’re using sign language so we can easy communicate each other. If we involve hearing world we didn’t feeling confident because they didn’t using sign language. I want to show hearing world know about Deaf community look like. This second image, If we involved Deaf community we will be happy because we can easily communicate by using sign language. Photoshop images, were changed with colour because I wanted to look professional for my final project. I just took photos of practice . I think that really good those Photoshop images cause the background show blurring so I want to do this self portrait pictures for final project. That was related to interview cause its show deaf community what is look like.
I took this photos cause I want show about the communicate sign language fingers spellings, this images signs is mean ‘Poker”. I might using this images for my final project.
Thinking ideas of the background
I was visit to Point Chevalier Bowling Club, I meet them of two men in Point Chevalier Bowling Club.I finished discussed with them, we talking about Auckland Deaf Poker. The two men were hearing, they’re really love to including Auckland Deaf Poker because they told me them had a enjoyed playing with Deaf community. And also they had a good time and always have laughing and happy each other.
Ten best work
I took this images in Point Chevalier and in her office,
I was thinking I want to adding sign language in those photos. I will be using those images into my final project. The photos of Point Chevalier space and the images of sign language in photos, both was related space and personal.
Ten best work
It was really challenging for me because I found it hard to choose the best images. I was asked to help and give advice to my family and friends. They also said it was hard to choose as well. However I did decide to choose the best images by myself and chose the best quality images. I will be using A2 ten best work for final project and I will be using pin map on my wall or others.
I choose this image because this photo was similar to my photo of poker table. I want to this image relate to my project. Serge is a photographer based in Hong Kong. His photography is the result of how different cultures live. I really love his work cause his photos has beautiful pictures. And also his work is show travel images and the culture that’s was relate to Deaf community.

I am really happy with the whole photos . I’ve been doing the pin map for 2 hours and I placed it on the wall.
Final video exhibition
I tried to test the video onto the projector and the video was working on the projector .
I choose the space in Point Chevalier because this space is popular for Deaf people since a lot of people go to Point Chevalier Bowling Club. And also I was comfortable interviewing Deaf people because I am part of the Deaf world. If I interviewed a hearing people I will feel a bit uncomfortable and shy because we don’t have the same language. I want to explore their body language and also Deaf people always using their body language with sign language.
I visited Point Chevalier, I’ve been practising taking photos of those images because I want to show the communication of Deaf Community. I wanted to show in each self-portraits the model could be signing one word, I’m doing showing it through this images in an interesting way.
I wanted to show an emotional face because it was happening to us within our Deaf community. First image, this face was sad because some Deaf within the world have been stuck within the hearing world because Deaf community felt that they didn’t want to be involved with the hearing world, we want an easy communication with the hearing world. Within the deaf world , we are more confident with the deaf community because they’re using sign language so we can easily communicate with each other. If we involve ourselves with the hearing world we wouldn’t be able to feel confident because they didn’t use sign language. I want to show the hearing world about how the Deaf community looks like. This second image, shows how if we were involved with the Deaf community we will be happy because we can communicate easily with sign language. Photoshop images, has been changed with colour because i want to look professional for my final project. I just took photos of practice . I think that those are a really good Photoshop images because the background shows a blurry vision. So I want to do this self portrait pictures for final project which was related to the interview because it showed how the deaf community looked like.

Body Language – Michael San Filippo
Michael San Filippo studied in Italy and was a graduate student for over three years. He was learning about the language, communicate and body language. Italians use body language and gestures body expression. Italian people always using body language with expression.
I found that was really interesting for me especially about the body language images. When I see those images I do understand those body language because I can see those body language expression also it was easy to relate to those body language. When hearing people didn’t know sign language then hearing people would use simple body language and also Deaf people would understand the body language. Sign language is used with our hands, facial expressions and body movement as well. Many people around the world may view Deaf people differently and not someone with a disability
I want to building one in library, i was find those DVD is about body language . However i was disappointing because those videos don’t have a subtitles.
Hearing world VS Deaf world
People who are deaf have a different way of communicating and have their own language that differs from hearing cultures. While there are ways of communicating in both hearing cultures and in deaf cultures there are differences in the way language is used where the concepts studied in class to evaluate those differences to learning why respect and communication is a important. In deaf cultures their communication skills depends greatly on moving their bodies, hands, arms, heads, and outwardly show expressions on their faces which are both conscious decisions and efforts in order to communicate. It is important to know the culture of the persons we come in contact and interact with, as well as appreciating their language. While there are differences in the way language is used in different cultures the understanding of the differences of hearing cultures versus deaf cultures is important to applying ethical communication skills.
I choose this image because this photo was similar to my photo of poker table. I want to this image relate to my project. Serge is a photographer based in Hong Kong. His photography is the result by how different cultures live. I really love his work cause his photos has beautiful pictures. And also his work is showed through the travel images and the culture that was relate to Deaf community.

Research library books
I have been reading those books, it’s was really interested of the gesture and body language. The fist gesture is curious action because it is done one way, with the knuckles facing outward, it’s a threatening and aggressive gesture. But if the fist is rotated so the gathered fingers are displayed outward, it converts into a gesture of pride, power or victory. History books show three separate scenes where this gesture has become memory.
Author: Roger E. Axtell
In USA sprinter Tommie Smith at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico Martin Luther Kind during this many protest matches and Nelson Mandela of South Africa on 1990 tour of the United States and Europe. Each helped implant the concept of “Black Power” in the minds of the world. Yet, with a mere 180 to rotation of the forearm, wrist and hand, that fist gesture appears in the same history books with pictures showing crowds and angry shaking their fists.
I found really that interest to me about the touch.I’m learned that information about the Middle East was not the only region where it is quite acceptable for two men to walk cradling an elbow, arm in arm, or even holding hands.
United States and Canada
Middle East Countries
Spain and Portugal

Jenny Rova is photographer , she doing a self-portrait. She mainly influenced my work because her working showed lots of emotional images, it was similar to my project. My project images had colours and also her artist work used only black images and some colour images because it kind of looks like a depressed picture. she was emotional that come with being in love – the frustration, misunderstandings, anger, and confusion. In one image Rova is lying in bed.

First week we only use cardboard. We made 3D models that were challenge for us. Chris asked us about why we start with paper cardboard so I was think that was cheap, easy to access and also easy to work with reality available. We learned about the grades of the papers. That was interesting for me because I didn’t know that of gsm-weight (grams per sg metre). Then later, I started drawing based ideas for my 3D models. we started making based 3D model. I made three 3D models. Those shapes 3D really challenged to me because first time I made those. I just find it complicated for me especially making the model. That was worth it to make the based 3D because if I made more 3D model then I can achieve to make best 3D models. I think that my 3D models did really well. Next time I wanted to try my best to make more of 3D models.
Today, we had a workshop. I have enjoyed making my own model. Danny and Kennedy were talking about introduction to tools, process ,health and safely . It was challenging for me because I wanted to look professional models. I have working for almost 4 hours and I was working hard. For the first image I had to draw for my model because Kennedy needed to know what size of the model so i started to drawing of model. Then I showed him.
Next day on Friday, I had to do self-directed work. I was working in the workshop, I wanted to create a big size for my model. I have been frustrated of soldering iron because I tried to create prefect made of box and others. I didn’t give up, so I kept trying for one hour later and then I achieved to make the models. It wasn’t easy at first, it was a challenge for me but it was good to learn more of soldering and others things. I think that cardboard paper more easy to create of model. And also at workshop soldering iron that was more hard then cardboard papers. The workshop was more challenging than the papers. This workshop I have learned a lot of equipments and also health safely.
Today, We were playing with yellow doh, I really enjoying playing with the yellow doh. I want to make the yellow play doh with metal material because I need to show the relationship between two materials coming together. I was making it out of a home because I wanted to show the relation between the models from week one and two. I don’t want them to see look like different models and also I want to all similar relationship serious of the models .
Then, we watched videos which I found was really interesting especially how Rachel Whiteread was always doing circles painting on papers.
I took lots of photos Danny made the molds and clay, and also those photos show the making process. He used sand with small amount and clay. Then one large water was placed in the bucket and 1.5kg plaster put in same bucket as well. The plaster can be very dry for the clay. And Then it was mixed really slowing because we didn’t want to damage the molds. The plaster was placed within the sand box and we had to wait for more than 15 minutes.
Danny showed us how to use the clay. The first image shows how to make the clay strong by using glue.
I started making my models. I was making the old house, I wanted to make the old house because it was similar to my house in Somalia and also that’s me remind me of first home in Somalia house. I really enjoyed making the clay and also its was fun as well.
I’m don’t think I have a really good skill at drawings but I still tried my best.
I was thinking should I added the play doh on old house clay because I want to show soft and hard its was relationship the materials.
I was trying to make a wired house.
Group work names: Savannah, Nicky and I. We were making plastics bags, cello and tapes. I quickly started to draw for object. We have made one big object. I think that was the best plastic work because we had worked well together and also helped each other. I was thinking that I wanted to relate the same objects from 1 to 3 weeks ago.
I really enjoyed and had fun because we were laughing too much and then we went outside and we tried to make the object work with the wind but didn’t work. We had a good time.
process made object
I used the Adobe Premiere Pro so i do editing this video, I want to showing our big object. I learning editing from Carten was teach me. I just felt that I knew some knowledge but now I know more on how to edit. Even though I don’t have 100% knowledge experience on video editing so I still need more learning about editing video.
I will explain more about the touch, I was made of the ice cause it’s was touch. I did want to choose the smell, sound and others because the touch was related to all my work of the models. I didn’t choose the sound because I didn’t want to involve sound as part of the world. However, I put oil and water in the bowl because when the ice goes hard it is harder to melt, that’s is why I was hard to find the relationship between both.
I will brief explaining about some courses .
I choose the first animation, it was the best course because I have learn lots of software and filming stop motion, It was worth learning about the software and I want to do the course. I have been using camera all throughout my course. The course is called practice Professional and related to this course because it is about artist work in exhibition, Savannah and I, went to building one and we took lots of artist work photo’s. We wanted our photos to look good like the example of professional images/photos. Savannah and I took lots of photos of artists images work because we want to look like professional photos .We took so many, Savannah and I decided we should take more images in the student building and teachers artist works. This course is same thing, I have taken lots of photos of stop motion . Gina’s and Carten class have lots of drawings work , both work were a bit similar because both class had drawings. I don’t have a good skill at drawing. However, I really enjoyed all course and also I have learned a lot throughout the course. Through the course teachers taught me a lot about the necessary tools an techniques in In design to get familiar with. Photoshop is my favourite software because at first glance it looked really complicated, but I found it not too hard and enjoyed using tools such as reflection.
My storyboard was alright because my drawing is not good and also I think my storyboard needs some improvement but my storyboard was good as well. I’m not saying I did really bad for my storyboard, I just wanted to improve the action on my storyboard. I was just thinking that my storyboard did well because drawings had show series about what happened next. Out there in the world people still using the storyboard film and also stop motion as well. For Self directed, this time I was drawing on the storyboard then I was thinking that I should I change the series drawings because it looked boring however now it looks much better than before.
Perspective drawings, Paul taught us about one and two point perspective drawing: e.g. long shots and also drawing bodies and others. I think that it was helpful to me as now I know how to draw the body, 3D shapes and other kinds of things we went over.
I really enjoyed in photography studio cause its was good to learning set up of the lighting and tripod. It’s was worth it to learning those cause I want to become photography in the future. This is why I enjoyed of the equipment . I have been challenge with set up of the lighting cause its was first time set up by myself. Our group were did really well because we had a good team and also we have been discussed about the long shot or close shot and other things. We had bit mistake with quality video and also everyone has mistake.
We were learning about how to do export images on Adobe Bridge. For the images, I had to click right then click batch rename. This is the first time I used the Adobe Bridge and also I think that way was really quick to use the Bridge because it was quick to put in the file at Premiere Pro. I had been using Premiere Pro before so I know how to create the editing on video but I still need more learning of the tools editing and others. We were learning about how to do export images on Adobe Bridge.
That action was my favourite part to do because it’s was fun and also it good to learning the stop motion took photos of Lego toys. It is my favourite to do the photography because its part of my future doing photography. I found out some challenges that I faced when I edited the video. It’s not easy to edit video’s. I was thinking I still need to do more learning about editing video. However, I did really enjoy learning about how to edit the video’s.
I enjoyed made the Photoshop video. It was great learning about the add the drawing on video. The other video I was add the car I didn’t like it, I wanted to do my own film so this is my film Deaf Fashion show last Saturday. I am also happy with this video because its perfect series drawings. This was my first time learning about the drawing on the video in Photoshop. The drawing on the video in Photoshop is was complicated because there are tools and techniques to learn. I want to learning more still of Photoshop and software and also Camera menu as well.
The first time I made stop animation drawing , this is really interesting because it is one of my first animation drawing. Also it looks like a movie but it’s a drawing , it’s really cool to see this.
That was my favorite movie because this move showed a lot of emotional scenes and good actor as well. This movie made me cry because this guy was alone and he was lost from his family. This movie was similar to our film because our film showed characteristics of loneliness and sadness. I really like this cover because this cover used the Photoshop layers and also layering the photos on Photoshop was my favourite thing to do. I wanted my poster similar to this. This cover had a really good image because this photo has good quality also layouts and fonts.
I choose this images because this image is really good tidy layout as well and also the red top and blue on bottom that’s was really good ideas its show fighting image. I might used this idea inducing to my poster.
