People around me get used to calling me 

a photographer, or videographer. 

I think I am more than that.

I not just take photos and videos. I create

something new and something cool. I try to make contents that have social influence.

I am more than what you know.

Cameras? Lenses?

They are not only the tools that draw my thoughts.

They are my buddies

First of all, let me show you some photos I took, please get to my galleries

Get started with the inspiration part. 

We Create

Lights

We all know iPhone has impressive cameras. But it has its limitation due to the small sensor.
My question is, what's the limitation of the cameras? What is the worst condition could iPhone handles? So I gather my friends to help me out with this extreme low-light testing. My goal is to deceive people's eyes and let them think those photos come from a professional camera.

Airpods Pro

With Music

One of my favorite Apple products. It increases usability significantly while I am going out. Active the noise cancellation mode, and get in the world of music. In this section, I want the earphones to dance with music.

Apple Pencil

After I purchased a new iPad Pro, I was thinking of getting an Apple Pencil. Then I to engrave something on my Apple Pencil. It does not support "Think Differently" because there are too many characters. "Think Different" is the longest available word it supports. Do you think that's a coincidence? Nope, I don't think so.

All right, it's time get into the next chapter: imagination
 

As a creator, my brain always pops-up new ideas. Fortunately, I know how to shot/edit photos and videos. With those skills, I am able to express my mind.

Blockeley

For the first time, UC Berkeley had moved its graduation ceremony online with Minecraft. I collaborated with awesome people created this amazing trailer for not only UC Berkeley student, but also people who need hope. The video has a total of more than 10K views and I think it made a wonderful social impact. Check my story below.

Wake up!

​Las Vegas

Since young, I had been visually stunned by the time-lapse videos of Las Vegas taken by professionals, but I have always felt that something was incomplete about these existing works. It was only when I visited Las Vegas that I realized the city changes its face ultimately when the sunsets. Well, how about I put day and night together. This way, you can see how Vegas wears her mask at night.

Let get to the next chapter: innovation

 

Think outside the box. I like to find new ideas for problems. And I have my way to showcase the solutions. 

Airbnb Luxe

Realizing that Airbnb luxe exists in Los Angeles but not San Francisco, and failing to find advertising regarding luxe in the Bay Area, I saw this information gap as my chance to explore the possibilities of luxe in San Francisco. No video, no problem. I can make one. I also wanted to beat the Airbnb Plus photographer. No offense, I just try to do things in my way.

The Iron

Heart

My work explored how Spiderman ran out of the shadow of Iron man's expectation and became a real superhero. Speaking of shadow, I decided to use shadow to show the whole story.

My workflow

and device set up

A photographer always needs a high efficient workflow.

Besides, keeping files safe and organized is also important. 

Here is how I achieve that.

Workflow and device set up

1. A high power thunderbolt hub is the heart of my system

2. When I get home, I use only one Thunderbolt 3 cable to connect the hub and the laptop

3. Hard drives, SD card, and the monitor all connects my laptop though the hub

4. I use Raid 1 on the NAS to keep files safe. If any of the constituent drives fails, the other one still alive

5. I sorting my files by [device name] - [Date, content name] - [raw/jpeg]

6. When I am traveling, I normally save my files on a portable hard drive, iPad, and NAS if possible

7. When I deliver photos to my clients, I upload them on Google drive. This is one more way to back up data
