    Default HELP: NDP Shooting today

    I have gotten some tickets for NDP preview this year from my brother, which will be today.
    We'll be seated at the Orange sector.

    I'm not sure if I should bring both the 55-200mm and 24-70mm lens, or just the 55-200mm.
    Not sure how far the Orange sector seats are, but I think 55-200mm would be the most practical? (actually I think 200mm also won't be enough)
    24-70mm wouldn't be able to capture much, except for audience or overall view.

    Pls advise on what I shld bring, how I should take, what should I look out for.

    Thanks!

    What are u shooting? People? The parade? Or cheerleaders?

    And if you bring tripod, where are you setting up? You got a space to do the set up? People usually shoot fireworks from FAR AWAY. i.e on a famous bridge.

    Hope that helps. enjoy!

    The seats will only allow a bag or two max. You will not be able to set up a tripod unless you stand outside on the walkway. But you will surely be blocking the way. Unless you have a media pass and are on the stage, just go to shoot people. the parade will be too far away unless you're shooting the whole atmosphere.

    For advice on lens to bring, read your own signature. Tripod not advisable. A monopod will be better.
