    That's a good initative. keep cool keep focused. Eikin, if you need manpower for shooting , or DI as spoken on PM contact me.

    On equipment side if you need another reflector - large I can mobilise my own. Lightmeter too but I think you guys should work on Keep It Sweet and Simple basis.

    Kay Chin - good wake up call for the troops.

    once again thanks to all who have showed support and encouragement, let's pray that we will clear the first hurdle and that this will take off. it will be a great learning experience for everyone.

    Call for Dollar-to-Dollar donations

    We are calling for any company or organisation that will like to support this event to pledge a Dollar-to-Dollar donation. Sponsorship credits will be mentioned on our posters for now, unless there are plans for other publicity medium, this will come at a later stage.

    Thanks eikin for the update. Looks like what we discussed last night is starting to happen. Lets hope we can hit our target of starting this project by next weekend. Eikin would you like the honour of naming this project? After all, you "give birth to it".

    Large LCD monitors will be useful to display our work for potential donors to preview how the pictures will look like.

    But the problem will be power supply, hopefully can get power source. I do have 2 x 20" LCD that can be used for this purpose. I have used them for similar event and the apple cinema display is a good attention grabber...tried and tested

    good to see some progress. (cross posting with the original Aceh Photo thread as I now sure how to link it, sorry)

    Thought you guys might be interested to hear this.

    This afternoon, Hassan, executive director of Mercy Relief, (they are on way to Aceh tomo morning) called me from Medan to update on situation. He had met with various people, including govt officials.

    One of the things the indonesians DID request for was what you guys suggested - for the corpses to be photographed for future ID purposes.

    For a while we were discussing the logistics and I was hoping to contact all of you who have expressed interest.

    I just called him again to check minutes ago and after much deliberation, they decided to drop the idea bec many bodies have decomposed beyond recognition.

    I promise to keep you guys informed if situation changes again.

    while I am at it, the priority items now in Aceh are body bags (lots and lots), medicines (all kinds, esp panadol or equal), shelter (tents), surgical/disposal gloves and masks. We are rushing shipment to Aceh on Friday, hope more of these items can make this trip. If you have them, pls send to 58, Lowland Road ASAP.

    Lastly, ST photographer Terence Tan came by after on assignments for seven days in Phuket to help carry boxes and sort out medicines. We also got him to speak to volunteers about the situation there and how we all can help. I think most people felt assured that what they have been doing here in whatever small ways do count. He promises to come by again to help and to speak. Hope you guys can hear him talk too.

    The large LCD will be a crowd puller, but we have to get the power supply sorted out first. (at a leter date) Maybe the team going tonight can recce for possible power sources and location for printing booth. (under shelter in case of rain)

    Translation? Cool, I will need the typesetting as well.
    Chinese and malay as well please. I suggest that the poster be in a landscape orientation. (Stability and more space for information)

    Sponsors. Their logo can also be place at the bottom of the picture
    We have to decide on a standard software to do DI (Photoshop?)
    How about contacting adobe as a possible sponsor, apple as well.

    Sample photos : We need 2 sample photos for each possible angle, day and evening.

    Shooting : I think that we shoud also decide on a standard on camera and photo size (pixels), this is to minimize the time taken to process and print the photos. Same type of camera will give same results and thus the post processing can be automated.

    Printing booth: Maybe we should scale down our plans and have just 1 printing booth with 4 printers and 2 Notebooks. All the equipment to be in operation at the same time.

    Please post if you have a better idea and or I missed out something.

    Hehe...good news. The power supply issue settled. STB just informed me that we can use the electrical power there for S$50 a day. Not too much...we can split amongst ourselves. S$10 each...take it as our own $$ contribution

    great, so i guess we don't need the generators anymore.
    as mentioned b4 the electricity from generators are not clean.
