    Folks,

    For those who'd like to find out what we usually bring for the sessions, here's a short list of essentials and good-to-have items.....


    the essentials

    1) Camera - Anything you have or feel comfortable with. Cameras with manual or bulb mode is preferred for longer exposures.

    2) Lenses(If you are using SLRs, DSLRs, M4/3, mirrorless, medium format, large format, etc) - Wide angle lenses are usually a staple. 24mm or wider would be good. You are however, free to bring along other lenses for other photo opportunities.

    3) Sturdy tripod / head - Essential for long exposures.


    the good-to-have

    1) Bubble leveller - a hotshoe mounted bubble leveller helps to straighten your setup to align verticals and horizon.

    2) Small torchlight - useful as you most probably will be setting up your cameras in darkness.

    3) Filters - polarisers, ND, etc..... whatever you may need.

    4) Remote release - Good to have for long exposures. Can be easily substituted by the camera's built-in timer.

    5) Snacks and drinks - If you are like me who gets hungry every 2 hours, something to munch would be good. Potato chips and coke work best for me. Nearest 7-11 is located in MBS. We usually wrap up around 8:30am and proceed to breakfast after.

    Main objective is to have a fun photography session. No pressure, no worries. See ya!

    according to coolthought's link: URA Bayfront car park is $1.20/hr 7am to 7am the next day
    looks like Ritz Carlton is nearer and cheaper than Marina Square too: $2 for 1st 2hrs, $1 for next subsequent hr from 7am to 7am the following day
    (The Ritz Carlton, Millenia Singapore Car Park | Carpark & Parking Rates & Charges - sgCarMart)
    Marina Barrage is free, anyone knows if the Gardens by the Bay walkway towards Marina Bay Sands is open? If not then it will be a long walk heh

    hope i can borrow car, if not will be a little late... 1st bus/mrt start a little later on Sun/PH =(
    there is a place whereby you can park for free legally until 8am... if I am not wrong.... but be prepare to walk....

    Hmm? But I just took 106 to MBS a few days ago. The bus re-routed to end at Shenton instead of Marina but it didn't terminate, as far as I know.
