    i love shooting buildings especially if the skies are blue and especially rustic old buildings. now if only we can access the top of republic plaza, that would make some nice scenes of the shenton way area from the top though

    Ya, I feel the same way as you too. I do think this is possible. All we need is the president of club snap to send a proposal to the republic managment. After the shoot, we do some processing and give them selected shots from there. It may work* =X

    Uh ... don't mind me asking ... but why Republic? I mean, it's high and all, but I'm not so sure you want to shoot from up there. Buildings tend to look very pretty from ground up, but not vice-versa. Roofs tend to be grey and dirty. See here if you aren't convinced.

    I was thinking more along the lines of walking Raffles' Place on early Sunday morning or shop houses in Ann Siang Hill, or City Hall/SRC/SCC/St Andrews/etc. ... that kinda thing.

    If not, well, I can also conduct basics class lor ... just a quick one on aperture, shutter, ISOs, etc. I'm not so sure that's helpful though, since I don't know the level of competency.

    I`m quite sure the creator of the clubsnap is the creator. In some location which is restricted to public. The group in charge can pm the President to write a letter for approval. One of the tread under gathering and outing actually mention about this. You need to search somewhere around the forum though. =D

    Withness organize the next shooting!!! I may not attend till 17may which my assessment end. However I just do my best* =D


    Why no one uppload picture of our first night shooting?? =O

    I am all game for that idea. Anyway, just for your info, I was staying in Ann Siang Hill for more than 12 years. That's like my home town man, and I wanted to go back and see my old house, now converted to be an advertising office.

    i was thinking of getting myself into hdr photography. saw a couple of posts of hdr images taken of raffles place from high up above the ground and they look really cool.

    what do the others think? shall we have a city walk outing?

    as for the basics class, very nice of you to offer as im sure we will have members who would use this opportunity. i have some handouts of beginner basics as well as photoshop basics that i can share with the rest too next time we meet.

    speaking of which, i will be away for 2 weeks and will return end April. i will keep myself updated in this thread of course while im away but if anyone intends to organise outings, please go ahead!

    Ok, some of the pictures that I had taken for the night shooting as well as from the zoo, your valuable C&C is truly appreciated, must be sincere, I don't mind constructive criticisms.

    Blomqvist, I think you mean 19th April Saturday.
    Anyway, I'm not able to make it this saturday. Save the Punggol sunset for another day pleeeaassseee? I would definitely go if I was free. Anyway I think I might be out of action for the next 3 weeks cos working towards my finals. Then I graduate! But If there are any outings within the next few weeks and my brains are fried, I would definitely come along.

    Mapper48, saw your night shots. IMHO, there isn't any proper subject for most of the shots (except for the merlion). Think it would be nicer to capture the full height of the buildings, cos now it looks very cut-off. But then again, it's just my thoughts. Good try though! The moon was cool! long zoom eh?

    Hi

    Thanks for the comments, you are definitely right, cos, that night was my first night shoot outing, no idea what to do, what to shoot and how to shoot it. If not for Myopia, and Witness I think my shots will definitely be crap.

    The moon was shot with my 1 and only lens 18~200.

    I will go back there and shoot again, but with focus point and then I post it again for all your C&Cs.

    important in night photography is to be sure you set the iso setting to get the shutter speed that you are comfortable enough to hold the camera. general rule is to get a speed of not less than 1/focal length.

    this is important to minimise camera shake and subject blur. it is almost impossible to correct a blurred image.

    if you have a tripod, better still. personally i enjoy taking night scenery just before it turns pitch black. what i try to do is to start taking photos from 6.30 right up to 8pm. you'll be amazed at the different scenes you can capture in that short space of time.

    dsc0530 - For example the first picture, read up on the rule of thirds. Google is your best friend. The subject placed right in the center might not be as pleasing to the eye as from another angle. Experiment with the angles, and see how others frame their pictures.

    just posted some photos of the night scenes. i didnt have time to edit it to adjust the colours so this is basically as it is.
