My Tumblr Blog: 1day1design

My Tumblr Blog: 1day1design

Back in 2011, I heard a friend says he try to design 1 thing a day, and his design sense improved gradually.

So, I thought I will give it a try and came out with 1day1design.

It didn’t last long. Like another failed project just like this blog. I am lazy. The designs are random. Sometimes I use it to express my feelings or thoughts, some are just abstract. Sometimes mix my photos into the design.

I’ll try to continue this project once I got my work and personal life more organized. Practice makes perfect, I hope to improve more and produce interesting art.

You can follow my Tumblr blog, jasonmon.tumblr.com, and I’ll follow yours too.

Confessions of a Failed Blogger and Designer

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my blog. My passion for blogging was lost. My passion for design has subside a little and shifted to photography. And I’ve been brought down by procrastination and maybe a little depression. And I’m lazy. This is why I’ve stop updating this blog for a long time.

Story Time
I did not finish my graphic design course. Bad time management, unable to deliver assignment on time, so I drop out of college.

Then I met a new friend, a photographer. We started a company with a videographer doing mostly wedding day and events photography. Learned a lot from him, but later I found that we have different views and direction, I left.

During my time in college and the photography company time, I did a lot of freelance for a small income. Logos, flyers, business cards, bunting, websites, CD packaging, etc… I didn’t manage my time wisely, and procrastinate a lot, making some unsatisfied clients.

While doing freelance, I have lots of free time for myself, I lack self discipline, skill and experience. So I decided to work in an agency to learn, and also to get a more stable income.

I’m thankful that my brother introduce me to his friend, and he’s looking for people to work for him, so I went to the interview with a weak portfolio and no certificate in design, but got the job, probably because they were in their peak season and also because of my brother’s recommendation. I’ve been working here 8 months now, but still learning new things.

Why Start Updating This Blog Now?
The passion for design is still in my blood. When I see a beautiful design, and hope that I can create something like that. I’m still working in art & design industry, and I hope that I can improve my skills and art sense. And I hope that by keeping this blog, I can track my experiences, and also to keep my passion burning.

YongNuo RF-603 Nikon with EM-5

YongNuo RF-603 Nikon with EM-5

For people with YongNuo RF-603 Nikon version and wish to use it with their Olympus EM-5, you just need to do some modification to the trigger so it’ll work with your EM-5 or any other M43 cameras.

If you’ve been searching around the web, you’ve probably found that people modified the Canon version of RF-603 from DPReview Forum and Better Family Photos. Someone in the forum commented that he used conductive aluminium tape for the Nikon version and it worked. So now I’m sharing how I modified my Nikon version RF-603.

You will need:

  • Philips screwdriver (+)
  • Conductive aluminium tape

I will just skip to the part where I show you which 2 contacts to tape over.

  1. Tape across the 2 contacts as shown in the photo.
  2. I took out the pin that’s furthest inside since it’s no longer needed.
  3. I have to leave the spring in for the RF-603 to work with my EM5.
  4. Trigger activated by my EM5.

**Note: When mount on the EM-5, I have to pull it out a little for the RF-603 to work.

**The pin that’s furthest inside:
