Shooting flowers in Singapore
Need to photograph some flowers ASAP... where would be a good place to shoot flowers in Singapore? Are there good varieties at the botanical gardens?

Since nobody answered your question for more than 10 hours, I shall. The Botanical Gardens is a good place to start, especially recommend the Orchid Garden area. Other place to go to is the Mandai Orchid Gardens near the Zoo. Late afternoon sun or early mornings are best times too I my opinion.

Yes! Agree with mphil.The Botanical Garden. Its FREE! and great place to do shoots. Just need to pay liek a dollar for entry for Orchdi garden and shoot all you want. As it's named, you will find more ordids than other flowers.

Enjoy the garden walk.
