Note that it may be restricted as there is a work site there and the area is actually out of bounds to public.
am i counted east? xD ~
i am in the middle of paya lebar, serangoon, kovan.
EAST, NORT EAST!
So, reduce by 1 stop = 1/2 the exposure == half the amount of light. (Same effect as double shuttle speed OR - aperature 1 stop. e.g. F2.8 -> F4, OR ISO 800 -> 400)
Increase by 1 stop = double the exposure == double the amount of light. (half shuttle speed OR + aperature 1 stop. e.g. F2.8 -> F2, OR ISO 800 -> 1600)
ND filter effectively is dark glass. It reduces the amount of light that passes thru it. 1 stop means cut down light intensity by 2. 2 stop cuts the amt of light by 4 and so on.
10 stop filter will cut down the amt of light by 1024 times. Not sure when will you ever get to use it in SG thou.. Maybe on mount everest, snowy white BG with strong sunlight it might be useful.
In Sg, at sea level, normally just reduce aperture to, say F22, the effect should be more then enough. Unless shooting portrait and using big aperture.
Usually pple use GND. Graduated Neutral Density Filter. For situation where there is strong contrast in lighting between 2 halfs of the scene. (e.g. bright sky and dark foreground).

Wait, so what is the plan now? Are we shooting at Changi Boardwalk or Tampines Quarry? If the latter I'm keen as never been there before.
Currently based in Melbourne / No longer living in Singapore
In any case, let the lady bosses decide lor..
I'm ok with Tampines quarry.. but those who suggest it please ensure that you can lead the way or there is someone in the grp that can lead the way..
From what I read on the internet, there is no proper path to the pond.
But it'll be something interesting, I guess..
Actually now it should be quite open in that area due to the construction works going on around there.. but still safety comes first..
If the intention is to travel right into the forested area on the right facing the quarry, i would suggest to bring along a torch.. cause there's limited lighting around.. although the street/road lights may be about 300m away, the lights are still unable to guide you around as there's a barrier of bushes that blocked it.. wear jeans/pants if you are uncomfortable with the sticks/branches that will brush along your legs while you walk.. some may cause some micro cuts.. best to have track shoes with ya..
