    I always shoot solo most of the time. Never in a group bigger than 3. Curse of a landscape photog. To see the pics, see here.

    No offense taken. Yup, thats me. Dark red polo, faded red cap, bui kia (fat kid), except that I am not a kid anymore. Turning 40 soon. LOL.

    Ya, mine is slightly above cheapo (but still cheapo). Cost me $40 USD when I bought it in California when I was still living there. It was a Velbon and it was on Sale!!

    Once you take a lot of long exposures like me, you will see the need for a good tripod. Actually, in landscape photography, getting a stable tripod is more important than getting a better lens. This is because we F-stop down to F8-F11, used ND filters and do long exp. That's why most pictures are sharp if the tripod is stable. Kit lens also can make it.

    I am looking to upgrade my tripod, but economy sucks, cannot anyhow spend.

    For you maybe economy better.

    But for my poor old pocket, economy still very bad.

    Thanks Fabian for organising this outing.
    Great to meet the guys who came. Yes, have a great time. Learn some new tips as well for newbie like myself.

    I go start a "Night Photography at Marina Barrage" thread at photo gallery. Those guys who are there last night, do share your captured shoots/works.

    Agree with daredevil , getting a stable tripod is more important than getting a better lens as we always F-stop down to F8-F11 to get optimal sharpness
    kit lens is good enough for long exposure shots especially for Nikon. I am seeing options to buy ND, GND and good tripod too.
    I also realised I need ND and GND to get the correct exposure during the shoot at marina barrage. Trying to get shots like daredevil but realised it is either under-expose on the foreground or over-exposure on the sky

    If you don't want to spend unnecessarily, then you can save the $20 also. The alternative has always been on your camera. Its called the timer. You scene isn't going to run away, use it.

    That's true also. That's how I started too.

    But when you start do one exposure after the next in quick succession, it might make sense to get the trigger. Plus, for bulb mode, the trigger is needed. Especially for my camera where the selectable exposure is limited to 30s.

    Redsun85,

    Don't take pictures like mine la. I am not that good. Take pictures like the seniors and the pros. BTW I saw your flickr photos. Your pictures are awesome!

    For ND and GND filters, I recommend the Cokin P system or if you want to save a little money, you can get Tianya also (which is much like a copy of Cokin). I do find some flaws and unevenness on Tianya GND or ND filters. So if you do Tianya, better open up and check piece by piece.
