those free to shoot one, if you shooting “put one light stand here, put another reflector there, mount the tripod here, ten photographers shooting XMM” that type of shoot, sure can not.
if only just one photographer with one camera, plus one model, don't make noise, don't block up the passage, don't hinder other people doing business, finish with 10 mins and move on, mostly nobody will bother you.
Chijmes is good. did a project there for school. sat in the middle of the carpark and shot. the guard was just amused. didnt chase us away so i guess it should be fine!
I don't understand why does it take a lot to explore new sights in sgp, since the photographer is suppose to bring out the intricate and personality at any given location, using the surroundings to relate to the subject. In that same application, the creativity makes every place new, each time you return to it. Because a same place, can tell of many stories, many times over.
The location simply depends on the theme of your shoot. Serangoon and little India area makes good area for fashion shoots if you ask me.
Who said Serangoon or Little India not appropriate places. The thread was on "friendly places" to shoot. If you think that much of Serangoon and Little India, may I ask, have you shot there, and are they friendly places? If your answers are yes and yes, then why don't you put those 2 places up as "friendly places to shoot"?
Actually, maybe to your chergrin, there are only very few public places in Singapore that are friendly to photographers. And my experiences at both Serangoon and Little India, were a mix bag.
Bro o' Bro,
Many places are friendly to photographers & photography. But its not very practical if you carry 2 tonne worth of equipment and walk around town trying to set the equipment up and expect ppl to be friendly.
Little India is considered a nice place to shoot, simply because its basking of activities and colors, that is hard to find elsewhere in Singapore. Nowhere else has that kind of energy, as well as the good mix of colors and art. But its very "unfriendly" if you wana set up any equipment there.
