    Default Daily fashion shows at Raffles City from 27 March (Tues) - 1 April (Sun)

    Didn't know it until I casually went to take a look at Raffles City's website :

    http://www.rafflescity.com/happening...hecatwalk.html

    I thought no more fashion shows at Raffles City after Eco Luxe for Singapore Fashion Festival already this week ..... only at Vivo City and Marina Square.

    For me, not tonight. Just came back from swimming.

    I prefer to shoot in the afternoon ....... Saturday and/or Sunday ..... 2.30pm and 4pm.

    May go for the 7pm only if really nothing else to do.

    The lighting is bright enough if u set it to F2.8 all the while. But with flash u get set to a faster shutter speed.

    On board flash too weak to reach most of the runway. If they stand at the tip of the runway and you're just infront of it, then the onboard flash can help a little.

    If unable to reach F2.8, lowest is 3.5F for the lens, how should the settings be like??

    Are u using FZ-30/50? U can try shutter speed of 1/20, lowest 1/13, anything lower, u might need a tri/mono pod. Can still shoot w/o flash.

    That would depend how close up u want. But 1/20 at full zoom still can take decent pics.

    If you wait for the model to come to the end of the stage, 150mm is more than enough to take half portrait. 1/25 stutter speed, ISO 80, with flash, should be ok. If I can make it there in time today, will try to use FZ20 to test out.

    For my prosumer camera, I managed to take at the following without flash (as my camera battery was running low and I only have built-in flash) :
    F/4, 1/60 and ISO 400.

    That's about the highest acceptable exposure I can go without motion blur. But then, sometimes still got motion blur if the model was moving too much just when I took the picture.

    At 1/60, can only freeze the model when she poses; if she moves fast, the picture will have motion blur. So preferably 1/125 should be used (her feet may have motion blur if walking down the runway). Better if faster than 1/125.

    My prosumer camera is too noisy at ISO 800 and also F/4 is about the largest aperture I can get at that focal length.

    For your own camera, you can have similar exposure based on different settings. For e.g. if your camera is too noisy at ISO 400 and you want to shoot at ISO 200, then the setting is ISO 200, F/4 and 1/30 (which is way too slow to freeze movement). If you can use F/2.8 instead of F/4, then you can shoot at 1/125 @ISO 400. Do your own calculations.

    In any case, the actual settings depends on the light condition prevailing. What you should do is to check the histograms of the first few pictures you take and then adjust your camera exposure settings accordingly. Using manual exposure is probably better since the lightings do not change and; if you use other exposure modes (such as aperture priority or shutter priority), you may not get the shutter speed or DOF or exposure you desire (as the camera's metering can give significantly different exposures, depending on your metering method and where you meter for each shot). You may want to use auto exposure mode (such as shutter or aperture priority) to take a couple of pictures first to gauge the exposure and then change to manual exposure mode with the appropriate settings to get a similar exposure.

    Also be careful of white balance too. Avoid using auto WB as it can be quite inconsistent as some picture scan turn out to be very much more red than others when the lighting is closer to the colour of tungsten/incandescant.

    Using flash would enable you to get the required exposure at a lower setting than the above. Also using flash can prevent the "sunken eye) appearance (due to main lightings happen to shine from above the model. For e.g. of sunken eyes, see the picture below).

    To avoid handshake blur, use shutter speed faster than 1/actual focal length guideline. If your camera has image stabiliser, can shoot 1 to 2 stops slower shutter speed than the guideline. Actual shutter speed required to avoid handshake blur depends on your own hands. In any case, if you are not using long actual focal length, then handshake is usually not a major concern since you already need at least 1/125 or faster to avoid motion blur already. Handshake blur is even less likely if you have image stabiliser and is already shooting at 1/125 or faster.

    Happy shooting.

    F/3.9, 1/60, ISO 400, 41.1mm (161mm on 35mm format), handheld (1/60 is faster than 1/41.1).

    Very happening on the fashion show scene this weekend. Other than Raffles City, different types of fashion shows are held at Ngee Ann City (S'pore Fashion Festival), Marina Sq, Vivocity, Plaza S'pura, Bugis Junction etc.

    Activities today at Raffles City (31 March, Saturday):

    11am : Capital Creme Awards - Roxy Surfboard design

    2.30pm : French Connection - Spring/Summer 07 (fashion show)

    4pm : Liz Claiborne Spring Collection (fashion show)

    7pm : River Island (fashion show)

    Today is going to be a marathon shooting day for me : 2.30pm and 4pm shows at Raffles City, 5pm show at Marina Square (or elsewhere), 7pm back at Raffles City.

    Then rush back for Liverpool vs Arsenal match (late first half or whole of 2nd half).

    Last Saturday night fashion show at Raffles City :
    Nikon 5700, F/3.7, 1/60, ISO 400, 27.3mm (107mm equivalent), noise reduction by Noise Ninja.
