howie deee ? how was your day ? or specifically , how was your saturday ? =D
=,=” so many question marks . For this saturday , we going to have workshop . Yessss ! its the day after friday . And yesss , its the day after Putrajaya field trip . Ohhh yesss , we’re bit exhausted . But , fret not , we still can manage to be bushy tailed and bright eyes. =D
I’m sorry i’m late to class , but its unavoidable , there’s NO bus on Saturday and Sunday . Okay , i’m late and everybody was there plus workshop has already started. Being late were never beneficial to anyone . So were me , i’m lost about the first lesson . Worsen the condition , i’m clueless about photoshop and that kind of thingy . Luckily , my friend patiently tell me , instruct me what needed to be done , what to click , where to get , how to do . =) thank you !
Generally , we been taught some skills in using Adobe Photoshop. The first session of the workshop been conducted by Mr. Faisal. He taught us the baby step in editing photo using Adobe Photoshop . I never used Adobe Photoshop before , so i’m a bit sceptical to learn the skill yet nervous too . People been saying that Photoshop was a bit tricky and complicated in using . What can i say about that , you’ll get the skill if you have the willingness to explore it . But i fret ! Ohhh , why we need to use Adobe Photoshop on that day . Help me , help me :’)
First of all , we asked to chose a picture and cut it . Then chose another pic , preferably background picture to layer the first cut out picture .Why preferably background picture ? Because we’re amateur , we don’t have the much needed skill and we need to clearly see the process . For me , i chose cute penguin picture . After cut the penguin and disposed the unwanted parts , i layer it on desert picture . Its contradict the penguin actually . In real life , there’s no penguin lives in desert . In fact , no penguin can lives there . Why i chose that ? Because i want to conveys a message that 1st ) life goes on no matter what happen , 2nd) Be strong and 3rd ) Please cleverly adapt yourself in every situation . But , sadly , ehemmm … I didnt save the picture . So , i don’t have it . Thus , i can’t post in here . T.T
Impressive right ? thats what we can do using Adobe Photoshop . =) But the two later before-after pictures above need more advanced skill of course .
*Another lesson here girls , don’t trust magazines pictures that show super duper hot beautiful girl , okay ? In real life , they’re just like us .
Practical time ! Dr Rosseni asked us to design our own banners . Howwwww ? tsk tsk T,T .
This time i chose jellyfish pictures . First i chose it because the blue colours contradict my blog theme colour which is black . hewhewhewww ! turns out quite well . But if i got chances , i want to re-design it .
Mr. Helmi’s workshop was Post-production phase so he taught us about skills in video transfer, video editing, audio editing and finalizing our video. As for video transfer, there are three types of video tranfer depending on the type of video camera :
- Hard disc transfer
- Mini disc transfer
- Tape (miniDV) transfer
In video editing, there are three softwares that we can use :
- Windows Movie Maker
- Adobe Premier
- Final Cut Pro
Compare to all threes, I think the most easier to use is Windows Movie Maker :p What we going to do in video editing? The answer is :
- Arrange, change, add, cut and remove video clips
- Video effects on a video clip
- Video transitions between video clips
Once we have done with editing video, we need to think about the audio. Our audio must be suitable with our video so that we can convey the emotions of the video. There are few types of audio that we can use in our video :
- Music – to create mood, to control audience emotion
- Sound effects – used for impact (Audio usage)
Then, for the final part was finalizing our video. As for PC, we have .avi, .mov, .wmv, .Internet – .mp4, .flv, DVD – .dob, Mobile device – .3gp, m4v. After he had done with his lecture, he showed us Adobe Soundbooth cs4. Adobe Soundbooth CS4 is a software to edit sound. Using this software, we can upload our audio and edit it. We can cut our audio, change the note, and do a lot more with it. Sound easy right but for me, it was the most difficult part ever. EVER!
And then, for the final lesson, he taught us how to use Windows Movie Maker. Yes, its the most easiest but it still difficult for me. Told you, I’m not good in technology. I even do not know how to use some functions in Microsoft Word, so you people can imagine now how bad am I when it comes to technology? Never mind then, so he taught us how to put effects, transitions, audio, subtitle, title and credit to our videos using Movie Maker.
My brain going to explode . Luckily , we can call it a day already . So , i’ll put big smile for the day !
