    Chingay 2005

    19th Feb 2005

    Launch of Chingay Parade of DreamS

    Look forward to the launch of Chingay Parade of DreamS, accompanied by these special effects!

    Flying fox pyro (33 shots to signify Chingay's 33 rd year)

    Firecrackers from our Chingay arch, ending with a big bang at the top of the arch

    600 strobe lights, flashed around the performing area & audience area

    These are some of the opening highlights...

    Anyone shooting?Bet there must be loads!

    Anyone has any idea where would be a good place to shoot?? I bet there will be loads of people crowding both sides of Orchard Rd, so might need to claim a good spot early.

    Hmm, if you have a very powerful zoom and have a stable and heavy tripod, perhaps you could shoot from the Shaw House carpark for a top-down view.Other than that, everything involves an early stake-out i guess, and mobility during the parade will be atrocious.

    visit www.sony.com.sg/sdw look under their Photography For Fun course. It says it will cover Chingay Parade with entrance ticket inclusive...S$80.

    wonder whether it means free-access to the Parade ...???
