    Default NDP firework shoot schedule

    Hello

    Anyone know this year NDP 2007 fireworks schedule?
    It is unusually quiet about this this year.
    Kind of missed last year firework shoots outing where we have many shoots.
    Anybody interested to gather for night/firework shoot? Anyone?

    According to the NDP 2007 website, there would only be two days of Singapore Fireworks Festival this year. Unfortunately, I think that the 27,000 seats at the new floating platform would be available by invitation only.

    http://www.ndp.org.sg/celebrations/n...Fireworks.html

    The 2 teams slated to present the performance this year is (from what I heard) Spain and China, representing Europe and Asia. The timing of the fireworks will be as per last year, starting at 2100hrs and lasting 15mins. A bit disappointed as I expected as many teams as last year though lols.

    Hope this helps

    Side question.

    In local context, what is your preferred setting for fireworks: ISO, Shuttle, Aperture?

    Do see if this is useful as it's been asked many times:

    http://clubsnap.com/display.php?file.../fireworks.htm

    Personally, I would want a low ISO (my DSLR lowest is 200), a "sharp enough" aperture like f8, and shutter speed will depend on what you want to "paint" in the photo (tripod a must).

    Probably there will be fireworks at the NE Show which is somewhere in mid July, then the Preview too, which usually takes place 1 and 1/2 weeks to two weeks before the actual day itself.

    can we stand along dat stretch of pavement along the road behind the fullerton hotel to shoot?

    yeah, i think Benjamin Sheares Bridge is closed - there was some commandoes rappelling/abseilling down from the bridge at some point, and i don't think I saw any photographers on the bridge today from the stands.

    I imagine a good place will be Esplanade Drive on the bridge. The fireworks are fired from a platform just opposite the Merlion. But i think the best place to shoot is still from the stands, because from any other angles, I think you don't get quite a nice backdrop.

    I was quite lucky to be in the stands today, and hoping my shots will come out well (they're on film).

    yes the shear bridge will be close (1lane) cause there will be fireworks raining down from there (not because of the commando repelling.. lol), that's y it's closed.. on NE show half the bridge will be raining, actual day the whole bridge!
    the road outside the event will also be closed, 4 lanes...

    hmm, i may get the schedule 2 -3 days before every sat.. so i update again!
