SML Pro Blog: Photography is an art, not a science. - http://blog.seeminglee.com/2013...
There is a great essay on Luminous Landscape titled “Making images, not taking images” by landscape photographer Peter Myers (1) which I like to point people to as I don’t communicate verbally very well. In essence, the scientific rendering may be a science, but what you choose to process the image is an art. Some photographers form the opinion that zero-processing makes it art (2). The reverse is true. What makes photography an art form is the care taken by the photographer to turn a scientific capture into different images through a conscious processing workflow. In the hands of different photographers, the same capture can become very many different things. In the hands of a single photographer, the same image can also be processed and reprocessed into different images.

SML Pro Blog: Black, white, and graphic design — a look back on my typography in my Yale college days - http://blog.seeminglee.com/2013...
1995 marks the beginning of my graphic design career. I went to Yale originally to study architecture but I decided to take some graphic design classes because I thought that it would help as I didn’t know anything about design. The decision to study art was mostly rebellious in nature. Unlike my classmates who mostly come from a fine art background, I was a science nerd in high school (1). I decided to study art mainly because I was sick of living under the shadow of my older sister (2). I also thought that it would make sense for me to utilize the opportunity to study something I know nothing about (3). The graphic design program at Yale was mostly typography driven. That is, Yale does not really teach graphic design the way other art schools do (4). The only actual “skill” that was taught is typography. There are no rules. Assignments are extremely open-ended.

SML Pro Blog: Order + Chaos - http://blog.seeminglee.com/2013...
One must still have chaos within oneself, to give birth to a dancing star. —Friedrich Nietzsche I am very messy. I am aware of that. I try to stay organized but it is very hard. People often ask me how I can find anything in my mess. Oh but just because you cannot doesn’t mean that I can’t. I have a very good visual memory. I won’t say that it is photographic but if I have read or seen anything I usually remember them. It just has to be visual or audible. They don’t work as well if they are just some abstract things such as words. But if I have seen it then I remember it.

SML Photo Blog: Life Celebrates Diversity - http://photoblog.seeminglee.com/2012...
where I photograph everything mundane to show how divesity is evident in our daily lives as an act for LGBT activism. Originally only the life forms in nature was included, but starting in 2012 I have started photographing things which surrounds our everyday life. You might not understand the absurdity of finding myself in tears photographing everything mundane—food, notebooks, travel souvenirs. To you, they are just that—mundane things in life. To me, it is a life long fight for justice and equality.

SML Photo Blog: 寧 Serenity: Part 2 - http://photoblog.seeminglee.com/2012...
I started using Instagram about 2 months ago. As I wrote on SML Pro Blog: Photography requires no expensive cameras, lesser cameras are challenging to control, but because of that it challenges me to push what can be done on it. So now I have more photos for the Serenity series which have received great feedback on both Instagram and Facebook — #smlthankyou! These were all taken with the iPad 3 or iPhone 5 and processed using Snapseed — very grainy but also very fun. I was actually surprised that they receive so much positive feedback because they are simply snaps from my home office.

Enjoy #typography #photography taken in #HK #CN or learn #Chinese #中文 #edu :) #crazyisgood #ccby The Hong Kong Chinese audience does not really get what I was trying to do with my Forms series. I noticed that 中文 Chinese are in fact mostly pictograms. By showing 中文字形 Chinese typographic forms, people in Hong Kong gets it and so this is why this series existed. Thank you all for your feedback + suggestions!

Avaaz - Hours to stop #Uganda's horrific anti-gay #law - http://www.avaaz.org/en...
#IMPORTANT #africa #lgbt #gay #policy The Ugandan Parliament is set to pass a brutal law that may carry the death penalty for homosexuality. If they do, thousands of Ugandans could face execution or life imprisonment -- just for being gay. We stand with citizens across Uganda who are calling on their government to withdraw once and for all the Anti-Homosexual Bill, and to protect the universal human rights embodied in the Ugandan constitution. We urge Uganda’s leaders and key partner countries to join us in rejecting persecution and upholding values of justice and tolerance.
