    Yes... we'll meet at Centro even it it pours... at most we just stay in the shelter and watch fireworks from there...

    You can just bring a black opague fabric...

    Wearing bright colours tend to reflect more light and may spoil the shots of others.. especially in a big group.. for the SLR users who are not using manual mode, the reflection of the clothes may mess up the metering through the viewfinder too..

    As long as the cloth/cardboard is able to cover the lens...

    wow... i didn't know clothes matters too...

    so i guess the cardboard is used to put in front of the lens for taking pics with bright objects, so that the bright objects dun get over exposed?

    It's also used to control the timing of the fireworks bursts... but more suited for Film Cameras..

    For night photography, it can be used to shield some overexposed buildings momentarity... (like ONE fullerton)

    Thanks Willy for sparing the time to organise this! Really appreciate it. Nice meeting everyone.

    Sorry wasn't able to make it to dinner in the end. We were stuck in the basement for ages. We managed to crawl 1 car length every 5 mins.

    Can't wait to hear about future get-togethers!
