    You can shoot macro almost anywhere in Singapore. Normal looking things can look very different when put in a macro perspective.

    Eco garden, last time I met a few dragonflies who are very photographer friendly.

    For Singapore, it really isn't about where. It's about slowing down and moving slowly and keeping a sharp eye. Also, choose your timing carefully, mornings and evenings are great times. You'll be suprised at what you can find simply at your neighbourhood even. Looks for thick bushes and shrubs, those are the best places.

    But... are these the CORRECT locations? What use is taking photos that look great but are from the WRONG location? What if gahmen fines you? What if my photo wins a prize and later it is revealed that it was taken from an INCORRECT spot?

    I think gahmen should put up little signs to mark the correct spots. Otherwise, how will we find the correct spots and be creative if noone tells us how?

    Is there a correct location? I wasn't aware about it, so I must have been shooting at the wrong location all the time..

    This one is shot outside China Square.


    This one is shot in Tampines in the midst of flats.


    This one is shot in International Business Park.


    All wrong location.. not even in SBG.
