    singapore is sooo boring. running out of targets. need to diversify into portraiture or something like that. even animals, birds and flora get boring.

    thanx for that. But don't think I will want to trouble anyone.

    Would rather wait for a few more months and get my camera before joining you peeps.

    Think only from march then safe to go for island trips @ redang. Hehe..

    Highly recommend an island beside redang -> Lang Tengah Island. Superb island, went there snoorkling... even snoorkling u can meet some sharks, turtles, trigger fish, etc.

    Went there on a super cheap trip(299RM=150SGD) for 3d2n this year may from kl, all expanses included. Sigh... Such promotion dun come easy... And the resort is 3 star, super nice also.

    still like the island a lot... Been to island like redang, sibu, rawa, tioman, aur. And love Lang tengah most. Maybe next year clubsnap wanna organize one outing there? I can help to book, hehehee....

    Of late, I've observed there's a decrease in the number of photoshoots/turnout which I believe both are positively correlated.

    What could be the reason(s)?

    You can remain anonymous and participate only in the polls; if you are gung ho which I believe many of the members here are, share with us and see how we can improve and refine of photoshoots!



    Note: You are allowed to make multiple choices!
    i share your sentiments. it is a difficult journey.

    here are a few of my comments
    1) clubsnap forum is indeed a good place to bridge newbies and pro ... i welcome the ideas of all the past events held by you guys !

    2) a few of us may not make it in most of the occasion ... ( like me =p ) but i realise without individual effort, it is difficult to hold for long .. so we need to inspire and build the basic foundation ( like the passion of photography etc ) in each gathering ..

    3) most of us might have other priorities or aims in life ... therefore it is a fact that time is not on our side ( if i have 48 hours a day, i would like to use 12 hours on photography )
    hence there is no need to feel down if response are bad.. i would be glad if there are 2 people who have passion about fotography

    4) being an expensive hobbies, not all will like it ... even so those who left the arena after learning the skills ... well, it is a fact .. and hence we would try to make full use of the time each gathering is held ... it might be the last or so .. but not so in the memories ...

    5) held talks or presentation or something ... people like to hear technical talks on fotography, i believe !!

    6) got chance , plan an oversea trip every 6 mths .... good to take pics on oversea .... esp australia , new zealand, hong kong, japan ... those package tour will do ...

    7) something else other than just taking pictures ... i would say life stories ? pictures of something extraordinary and build it up like a story book is not easy ... i prefer fotos that can talk rather than colours, feelings and skills... for e.g. old age foto shoots ? to inform people of phlights or somethings .. at least there is something noble we can do here with fotography ...

    8) lastly there are also other noble things we can do such as photography for the disabled, primary schools or somethings ...
    think do something worthwhile with your skills is something we can proud of when we leave this place for good ....

    package free & easy tours? IMHO i think those all in one "everything planned for you" type of tours aren't good for photog. i prefer free and easy, at least can do things at your own pace.

    that's something along the lines of what we're trying to achieve with a little photog project that we're doing... trying to do a little historical documentation before things disappear. interested to join us?

    It's too far to drive

    On a more serious note, if groups of 3 or so want to come to WA to shoot I can organise time to be a guide. Won't be that expensive, but would be better value than tours.

    Default ....just some peronal experience...

    Revenant.....

    Just to let you know that if you dont have any SLR camera point and shoots still does the job.....and still okay to join us anyway.
    Let me know if you need to borrow one(my spare SLR) on any of the future outings.

    As this outings was with the hope also to create a portal to get to know new friends and people with the same hobby. I can guarantee you that every outing you will elarn new stuff.......news skills, techinique and live advices from peers.

    It was only about 4 months back when I personally make a point to meet people for this CLubsnap Portal, my first meeting with some of them was over coffee and the rest is history. And bet you i don't regret it why ????

    Here are some personal reasons:
    - Many of them have been into this line for long and have good advices on techniques , macro, portrait, wedings etc...
    - See first hand how camera handling is done.....flash positioning etc.
    - Advices on which film to use....
    - Tips and updates on prices of equipment if you NEED!! to buy - these people don't psycho you to buy buy buy......!!!!
    - Open up circle of friends who may be interested in the same type of photography field.....
    - In case of a major local happening........SIZE IS POWER....e.g....having a mid sized group for occasions like fireworks outing ...help you secure better ground and also less risk of "somebody" who will shoot his/her flash!!!! in the dark!!!!..
    - Most importantly Great Fun......and stress relieving......i need to to keep my BP controlled....

    I think those are the main ones......convincing enough???....well...don't shy come join us for the next outing...


    Regards,
    Sulhan

    I think we're just shy.

    Big broad smiles should usually break the ice.
