    Default Midnight at the Changi Beach

    Went to Changi Beach last night to shoot "anything that moves" but ended up shooting these ultra low light scenes instead.



    This is the sandy beach overlooking Pulau Ubin. It looked deserted but actually there were people around, camping, fishing, including couples spending intimate moments together. The pictures were taken around 9-10PM. Alright, I lied. I added the word "midnight" to the subject to make it sound more interesting.




    As a newbie, I find taking ultra low light scenes frustating. Although the pictures may look good on the camera preview screen, I often find that they look horrible when viewed in their actual size. Out of 60+ shots I took, only 3-4 shots are decent (according to the amateur standard, of course)

    "Moving things" = People in motion. Unfortunately, there were not many people walking around last night.

    The white streak, I am sure, was an airplane since it appeared both in my picture and Megaweb's one.

    For the boat photo, I used ISO100, F5.6 and shutter speed of 8 seconds, and 30 seconds for the sandy beach.

    Last but not least, I would strongly advise anyone against taking pictures of "ah kuas" there unless you have a powerful night vision camera with zoom lens like 600mm or so. Going closer to take their picture can be hazardous to your own health.

    Some of you guys seem to be more interested in "Ah Kuas" than in the photography.


    Bluestrike, I hope you mean screws like the ones you can buy in the hardware stores, otherwise the moderators of this forum will have to remove your post.
