    Default Night Photography Outing @ Pulau Ubin

    Night Photography Outing @ Pulau Ubin

    This is one-of-a-kind outing that I'm organizing for the first time. It's a one-night stay in Pulau Ubin doing night and nocturne photography. We'll be also doing sunrise photography at Chek Jawa Boardwalk.

    Date: 24 - 25 Nov 2007, Saturday - Sunday (full-moon night)
    Time: 5pm - 9am
    Meeting Point: Changi Jetty
    For those who are driving, you can go straight to the jetty to meet us. For those who are taking MRT, alight at Tanah Merah MRT station and then take SBS Bus No. 2 all the way to Chnagi Village's bus interchange, OR taking MRT to Tampines MRT station and change to SBS Bus No. 29 at the bus interchange.
    Boat Fare: $2.00 per trip

    What do we look for in this night photography outing?
    1. Night sceneries on the island and to discover and enjoy that sense of mystery and night atomsphere (example as shown above).
    2. Creating night images using flash light & light-painting techniques (nocturne) with assorted colored filter gels.
    3. Creating night images using 'B' setting i.e. long exposure techniques.
    4. Creating night images using multi-exposure techniques.
    5. Creating night images illuminated by the full moon light. (depends on that night's sky)

    *Notes:
    - This outing is limited to 5 persons only, excluding myself. First-cume-first-serve basis. Minimum 3 persons to set off.
    Reason? It's not easy to control a big group and it'll be noisy as we're traveling and talking and laughing. We have to be considerate as the local residents are resting.
    - Photographers who confirmed their participation, please kindly PM me yr real name, nick, contact number and email address.
    - Details will send out to all confirmed participants via email.
    - Please drink plenty of water prior to this outing as we'll be doing alot of walking.
    - Should the weather changes, this outing will be postponed with further notice.
    - Try to have at least 3 - 4 hours of sleep prior to this outing as we'll be doing night photography through out the whole night til dawn. So you need alot of energy and zest to make it, not to mention your focus on composing and making night images.

    The best photographer is one who is inspired by the innate nature of his subjects.

    was going to comment that there wasn't much to shoot in pulau ubin if one uses available light

    Received a PM from LensCapOn who is yet to be comfirmed on his participation.

    Thanks everyone for your kind interest in this night outing. I'd like to apologize as there'll be no reserve list here. So for those participants who are yet to be confirmed on their participation, please kindly let me know by next Wednesday night or earlier if possible. In case there are other keen parties who want to join.

    I'll email the full detailed plans for the outing on next Thursday night.

    Sounds exciting and fun. Hope you can organize another trip.
    I read through your inventory list. For a night out at Pulau Ubin you will definitely
    need mosquito repellent.
