    Default Take a Picture and Donate to Tsunamis Victims

    Hi everyone, following some discussions from the Aceh Photo Relief thread, here's something that we may be able to do to contribute as a photography community. This is TOTALLY within our means.

    as mentioned by ortega, we can do photoshoots for people (locals, tourists, shoppers etc.) in places like Orchard Road or some other tourist attractions (e.g. Singapore River)

    this is in the initial stage and there are no concrete plans as yet. but we are consolidating a list of what we have that can be used to do this:

    Equipment list for supporters:

    digital camera

    1. eikin (mine take only up to 4mp, maybe for smaller prints)
    2. snowspeeder (6 - 8 mp, but 4 mp is more than enough for prints)
    3.
    4.

    laptop

    1. eikin (but monitor not calibrated)
    2.
    3.
    4.

    portable printer & photo-papers (maybe can look for sponsors? especially the photo-papers)

    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    What other things/people we (may) need (to do):

    1. A group of capable coordinators experienced in this type of charity drive
    2. Get approval from relevant authorities to carry out this project once plans are drawn out

    note, i am not the organiser (no intention as well as i have no experience in this and will not be able to handle such a project) i am only posting this to raise awareness for such opportunities to help, there are many things which i do not know that many of you will know with regards to such projects, so please step forward and contribute ideas/suggestions and your effort.

    we need inputs from the entire community here if we are to realise this donation drive because right now everything is just a dream, but this dream is not impossible IMHO

    p.s. for those who wonders if this will take too long to organise and not raise the money in time, we have to take note that very often we forget about the disaster victims after the media stop reporting them. this is a major disaster that will take many many years for the victims to recover, help will never be too late if we start now!

    seems like very poor support ... just for a start, a list of willing volunteers and equipment on hand

    Equipment list for supporters:

    digital camera

    1. eikin (mine take only up to 4mp, maybe for smaller prints )
    2. snowspeeder (6 - 8 mp, but 4 mp is more than enough for prints)
    3.HotSpots (6mp)
    4.

    laptop

    1. eikin (but monitor not calibrated)
    2.HotSpots (ditto)
    3.
    4.

    portable printer & photo-papers (maybe can look for sponsors? especially the photo-papers)

    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    we may just need to contribute a full weekend (or two)

    Laptop is not needed, what we need is a portable pictbridge printer
    inks and paper and lastly a location. Maybe the merlion/esplanade.
    Posters, T-shirts. Power supply for the printer. Reflector for a more
    quality light. Light meter. Tripod. That should be a start.
    My camera is also available.

    We can ask for sponsor of printer, photo paper and inks.

    No sure when will this be, so can't commit myself now.

    But a sekonic L328 light/flash meter, an a 055 tripod is available if needed.

    thanks catchlights! yah i agree it's difficult to commit without a decided time to do this, but at least must know how much equipment people are willing to contribute and what else are needed ...

    Equipment list for supporters:

    digital camera

    1. eikin
    2. snowspeeder
    3. HotSpots
    4. ortega
    5.
    6.
    7.

    tripod

    1. eikin
    2. ortega
    3. catchlights

    reflector

    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    light meter

    1. catchlights
    2.

    portable pic-bridge printer with power supply, ink supply & photo-papers (hopefully can get sponsors)

    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    t-shirts & posters can be worked out after we get the bulk of the items ready ... i have a feeling that doing this under a registered charitable organisation may be more efficient, any views/experience/suggestions on this?

    problem is the camera must be connected to the printer during the printing

    so while it is printing, u cannot use the camera to shoot already

    also, not all camera supprt pict bridge

    eg. my 1D can't

    i think there is a need to apply permit from CID as well, and it will take quite some time to process the application, but i got a

    20D, 190DB tripod and a notebook

    I also have another compact C750 if it can be used as well.

    yup that's true ... that's why it's good if we have a few more cameras on hand ... and really need sponsors for printers and stuff (think Kay Chin has helped with some contacting with Epson) we see how, we should have enough laptops to support this if alot of cameras don't support pic bridge. i'm getting some non-CS friends to help also, but i think main support will still have to come from CS. and still waiting for replies on whether we can get permit to do this at Esplanade and Orchard Road ...

    anyway, i like this idea too

    if there is a fixed location with power souce, it is faster to setup a workstation to do processing and printing, while the photographer will go shoot and find donors, then bring the CF card to the workstation to download.

    Don't need to ask the photographers to find doner, ask our models here to help.

    camera should not be a problem since everyone here will have at least one digital camera right. consumable like printer ink and paper is a greater concern.

    i think it is easier for him to bring his laptop to my place to calibrate, since he just stay opposite my block

    haha ... i don't mind if there're people with the 'kang tao' ... you want to look into that? this is team effort, we need everyone to help!!!

    btw, maybe i should point out that whilst this is gaining support alot still depends on whether we can get the permit since we are more like private individuals doing charity in public ... we can start requesting from Epson once the permit part clears ... AND HEY WHO IS EXPERIENCED ENOUGH TO COORDINATE THIS!!! NO ONE MEH???
