    If there are a lot of moving people, just use a very slow shutter speed, like 1 minute, and all the moving people will disappear from the scene. Of course those who stayed at the same spot for more than 1 minute will be recorded.

    Then you'll get to see what 99% of photog won't get to snap or see - the walls inside Changi.

    wah .... you're the 1% priviledged photog with special rights eh?

    too bad you can't publish .... else they really you.
    What's the experience? Scary?
    Sorry .... getting really O.T.

    Anyway, back to that making people disappear photography. I think the trick is to stack a few 8 or 10-stop NDs, to allow a very long exposure. I think an exposure of 10 minutes or more will definitely make any person disappear from the photo. Anyone tried this trick? I think the downside is image might degrade because of the ND filters you add on. My cam only goes 15 secs (and no bulb mode), so even if I have enough ND filters, most to most I get "ghostly" effects.

    frankly I am quite upset that Mr Fooxx is offering so little despite his vast experience in st photography... I recall vividly how Fooxx amazed many CSers during the St Fes with his many daring attempts to capture the moments despite all odds... black polos, black camera, behind the pillar etc etc...

    Mr Fooxx is definitely one with many tricks in his bag
