    The two china PR ladies were interested in what we are shooting and she can't figure why her DSLR isn't giving her the same picture as ours.
    So our in-house expert, Reportage, demo to them, like switching on VR on her nikon and when to use Active and Normal mode.

    My flower pictures will come later but here's my view of the crowd going into Sentosa.

    Two words from me : totally disappointed

    Botanic Garden is a much better place if you wanna shoot flowers.

    This was suppose to be a recce before the main force arrival on 12 Feb.
    But the commander is reconsidering the deployment as it might be difficult for such a large group to operate.

    Got a few pictures but I'm not sure if it is considered as decent.










    The last picture was taken straight from the camera without any PP.
    Reportage is the artist that came out with this concept, I just copied the idea.

    Looks decent to me.

    Question is whether the flowers will still be decent by the 12 Feb?

    Well, have to ask commander to burn those big big incense to pray that the flowers survive.
    But I won't bet any money on its survival since odds seems to be against it.

    nice photos! what lens are u using??
    i do not have macro lens, what other types of lens will be more suitable to take flowers? I have 70-300mm, 35mm, or just normal 18-55m?

    It all depends how much space you have to work with because a lot of beginners seem to forget there is such thing as minimum focusing distance. Too near the subject and the lens wont focus basically.

    if your question was targeted at me, what i was doing i wont say is macro but simply close up photography. I limited myself to pics that look nice with at most 5x zoom. What i used was the pentax FA50mm F/1.4 which i think is possibly the only lens i have that can have blur background even at F/11 or F/16. Generally i used F/8 so that enough depth of field but in some case, F/16 also works just that need to play with iso/shutterspeed/flash so its pretty handy to bring a tripod along.

    As for the choice of lens, even the venerable "el cheapo" 50mm f/1.8 will do in my opinion.

    One thing, if i want to do this on a long term basis..i will definitely need a camera with flip-able lcd. Damn its useful when adjusting high/low angle shots.

    A good thing about flowers...can generally practice at home.

    Yupz will have to take more time to shoot and cover everything today. In fact as I'm posting now, I'm already in NE line to harbourfront, but will go have breakfast first.

    Hopefully can at least beat the later crowd.
