    Default Places to Shoot in SG?

    SG maybe small but have you check out every corner of SG?

    I know there is similar threads and there is a thread in landscape already.

    but lets not restrict to just landscape and try merge all these information into one thread?

    List places (either buildings, people, objects, animals, floras etc) in SG that you think is worth to lift your butt off the chair and bring your camera to go and shoot.

    Let me begin:

    1. Pulau Ubin - There is this jetty near Chek Jawa, i simply loved that place! Maybe cos I hope to have a lake side house next time haha.
    2. Little India back alleys - After the Little India shootout with some bros here recently, this place had caught my interest!
    3. Ann Siang Street - After the Little India shootout, I begin to be more adventurous to go back alleys! haha. I even saw a bro with a model doing their shoot in one of the alley. There is heavy renovation works going on though.

    more to come...

    bro, you talking about uncommon places?

    in which case, maybe it is better to state that in our haste to share it is important to remember that the forum is an open one. unfortunately this is a double-edged sword. i once shared a location somewhere, and soon my friends who went were telling me that the security guards in that location were stopping people from entering the location to shoot that particular view, because too many people were headed that way.

    something to think about, perhaps for less-than-public places, or the grey areas, share it only with people you know you can trust. as much as we want to encourage community spirit, let's say, if the location is in someone's housing estate and people end up going as groups of 10-15 and line themselves up on the corridor or staircase landing while making a lot of noise, it is not hard to see why people will be irked.

    bro, it can be either common or non common places haha. but maybe put a note to warn bros to take heed of anything before going. but of cos if you find some places that you prefer to keep a secret its fine also... cos like you say, once many ppl stumble on this place and it gets too crowded, it means no chance for other ppl to go again.

    True saying. Only suggest those places that are too far or too smelly to go.
