    hi how long have u started photography?
    and for outdoor photography, u have to at least know what you want to shoot.
    e.g.
    architecture?
    candids?
    people?
    scenery?
    sunsets or sunrise?
    animals? macros?
    even portraits

    i guess, this would be a very generic theme... for a starter, specific theme would be quite hard i guess. why not go for these generic theme and learn to compose well, grasping good exposures first?

    cheers and happy shooting!

    Hi there!

    I assume you have yr Basic already. May I know what type of outdoor photography are you interested in? Nature & Landscape? Street Journalism? Outdoor Portraitures? Architectural?

    Well basically you can take pictures anywhere once you're outside with yr camera, except restricted areas. Anyway here are some of my inputs:

    1. Pulau Ubin
    2. Changi Boardwalk
    3. MacRitchie Reservoir Nature Walk
    4. Marina City Park
    5. Singapore Botanical Garden
    6. Chinese Garden
    7. Punggol Jetty
    8. Pierce Resevoir
    9. Seletar Reservoir
    10. Singapore Zoological Garden
    11. Fort Canning Park
    12. Labrador Park
    13. Sentosa
    14. Mount Faber
    15. Kusu Island
    16. Old Changi Hospital
    17. Little India
    18. Chinatown
    19. The Esplanade
    20. Orchard Road
    21. Kranji War Memorial Site
    22. Arab Street
    23. Bencoolen Street
    24. CHJIMES
    25. Armenian Church
    26. Singapore Art Museum
    27. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve
    28. Boat Quay
    29. Clarke Quay
    30. Alexander Hospital Butterfly Trail
    31. Kent Ridge Park

    We heard that an unforgetable picture is something that
    tells about the one who creates them. But the creator didn't know.

    How about this one at Harbour Front?



    In promoting a more civil photographic community with economic
    prosperity it is time to stop, look and empty all the unfavourable
    thinkings. Instead keep stimulating and increasing standard of living
    and performance through their work.

    thanks for yr ideas

    I've tried taking some themes with my friends, (eg. panning, patterns, shapes, buldings, motion blur, reflection) but once i took the photos, I don't know if it is at the right exposure or which angles to take. Just wondering what are the things to look at for a good photo? All suggetions and comments are welcome

    it's not panning ... just long shutter speed
    Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.
