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.

All images 

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.

 Research Artist

“Serge Horta”

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.

Group Project Process/ Final work

Our group: Savannah, Tristan, Liam, Lelua and Niand.

This was my first idea of our projects, The ideas I got from this project was I wanted to show the materials on the roof and I wanted to take photos of strangers in Unitec. I also wanted to show their culture of the self portraits.



Our group discuss is about the ideas of the model for exhibition in the building one, however we did lots of discuss so we got new ideas of the project which is called the space of Solar System. One student in my group had the first idea of Solar System so, I just did told my group  that I thought about it and I’m not happy with that because it looks boring because I wanted it to be more deeper of the model.  Some of the members from my  group agreed and we will be making the Solar System. We told our teacher we got new ideas, then we brainstormed outside of cube made in paper, but the top and bottom of the cube is covered, so from there the exact representation of the Solar System is hanging down by a string. We planned to name two of the Solar System.

Saynab Muse – Sun/Moon

Shane Rodrigues – Mercury/ Mars

Lelua Taufua – Earth/Pluto

Tristan Cui – Mars/New Horizon Probe

Ninad Mahesqari – Uranus and Mars

Savannah Halo Pascoe – Venus

Liam Saturn – ISS and box

As a group we needed to think of some new ideas cause Solar System is boring because it was simple like high school work. So we needed to space exploration which is the theme, and we tried to find a deeper meaning behind our ideas so we can develop it. We just chip in our ideas on Thursday.

Discuss and ideas 

New ideas







Our group did drawing of the ideas model, people in our group had lots of different ideas and also lots of discuss about the model.


 Final Group project

We already informed it the model so, we started to make seven boxes and also we have lots of plans about the final model. Our sevens boxes will be put on building one . I used the PlayStation Plus 4 box from my cousin. No one used this box so i used this box. I just felt really good about learning practice of the exhibition because it made us prepare and practice for the future, e.g when I work in the area of photography or other things. I was just thinking that this is a good example of what will happen one day if I do an exhibition in the future. I created inside in the box, I wanted to show what Somalia looked like because In Somalia, they don’t have enough water, food and other things. My family moved to New Zealand and they were really lucky live here. Because In New Zealand, they have good Education.


I started to cut shapes of the star because my culture had stars on the flag.IMG_1168.JPG


I was thinking that I should use the black painting because I wanted to show the meaningful of powerful within the model.img_1165.jpg

I decided use the black painting.IMG_1175.JPG


Next day, I had to start painting again because I can see the background of the PlayStation plus 4 .IMG_1194.JPG

I used the led lights and also I wanted to show the lights memories of the past in Somalia.IMG_1173.JPG

Next day, I was still keep going the painting because I wanted my model to look professional. I don’t want to see colour on the background so I covered it black painting.IMG_1205.JPG

Our group was set up on the tables, so our boxes will be on the table. I was thinking that I should add the led lights on the middle of the table. I wanted it to look good at the exhibition. Tristan and I doing set up of the tables so I was thinking maybe next day that it will be changed because it was not perfect on those tables. So I wanted it to be perfectly displayed on the table. IMG_1192.JPG

I was mostly left a bit of  brown spots on the background. I was thinking that I should add the black painting in this box because I wanted to match same colour. IMG_1218

If I didn’t added the led light it would look boring so I just wanted to show more interesting things in my project. IMG_1231

I just cut out a picture of  Somalia so I wanted to show the reality of the images and also I want to do the 3D images maybe I will do the reality 3D images next semester.

“set up Exhibition”

On 25th June, Tristan and I was doing started again because we went to showed more profession of the exhibition so we changed our mind and I just felt better with this one rather than the other one. Tristan and I have lots of the discuss what should change the tables. And also Tristan and I were happy with those tables because it looked way better than before.  IMG_1229

Next day, we already changed it again because we want people to walk around looking our exhibition. IMG_1317
