[Photography] NTU spots for academic dress – Fu Bell

June is the season of graduation in Taiwan. Here I’ll recommend some great portrait photo spots for those who wear the academic dress.

The Fu Bell

The bell was built in 1951. The bell is built to memorize Fu, Ssu-nien, the previous president of NTU. The bell rings 21 sounds when class start and dismiss; it is because president Fu said that we need to spend 3 hours to think. The bell is also in the NTU emblem to show the spirit of NTU.

Photo Example

The photo is taken by Nikon DSLR and Tamron 15-30 F2.8 VC. The wide-angle lens is suitable for this place because the surrounding space is quite limited here. Also, you may use the distortion to make the legs longer and get better body ratio. Four aspects can provide different background. You can always find the surprise in different season.

[Photography] NTU spots for academic dress – Gate

June is the season of graduation in Taiwan. Here I’ll recommend some great portrait photo spots for those who wear the academic dress.

The Main Gate

The gate was built in 1931 ( the Taihoku Teikoku Daigaku (台北帝国大学) period) with beautiful structure. It’s around 3 m height and looks like a fortress.

Photo Example

The photo is taken by Nikon DSLR and Tamron 15-30 mm VC lens @ 29mm. The spot is suitable for both personal or group photo. The place is a little bit dangerous, however, because it is the main entrance/exit of the NTU campus. Pay attention at all time to make sure your own safety.Wide-angle lens (under 35 mm (35 mm frame equivalent )) is recommend.

Above photo is an actual group photo taken in the front of the gate of NTU. The people are blackened.

[Life] Never buy a cheap USB cable or it may burn down your home

I bought a very cheap (200 NTD) micro USB cable with measuring feature few weeks ago. It can measure the voltage and the amp when charging but I broke it after I turn the switch to USB mode when charging the power bank. Yesterday when I try to charge a exhausted power bank which supports QC3.0, it starts to swell and heat up quickly. I immediately turn of the switch after I smelled a malodor of burning plastic skin. Luckily nothing was lost except the cable. I cut the cable and found that the metal cables are so thin ( smaller than AWG30) that may cause some problems when conducting large voltage and current. I think I’ll mever buy a cheap USB cable in the future…
