EYE GOES PENANG 05/06 – 08/06

We are organizing a photo trip to Penang, (3D/3N) where Eyes the City originated. It was the people at Nan Yang Folk Culture aka NYFC who initiated the 24hr year end shoot project. During this trip, we will be having an exchange session where they will be sharing with us their past project, followed by a brief intro of Penang. After which, it will be our turn to present "EYE E CITY". The may be an interview too. What is a photo trip without shooting right? So we will be going round Penang to capture the sights through different perspectives/ eyes.

We will be departing on Thursday night (2200hr) near Lavender MRT (opp. ICA), arrive at Penang on Friday morning, depart Penang on Sunday morning / afternoon. We will come back on Sunday night so everybody can charge up before returning to work. As such, we will require you to take 1 day annual leave on Friday (06/06).

Objectives of this trip :

1) Link up with NYFC for an exchange.
2) "Eye" participants to explore and capture a different society and culture through the lens. Think of it as "Eye E City" in Penang. May be this may have some effect on their work for "Eye E City 2008".
3) A big get to know other “eyes”.

When we are back, all trip participants will be requested, as in the actual "Eye E City", to select 3 to 5 photos for a photo sharing session, difference here is no prints, only slide show through projector. Date and venue for this session will be released later. The final output will still be black and white. No films will be provided for those nostalgic, you have to bring your own, dev and scan.

Highlights of this trip

1) Exchange between NYFC and EYE, slides show on past projects.
2) Rare opportunity for all the like-minded people to be together to exchange ideas
3) Interviewing “Eye E City”.
4) Yeow Wooi (point person at NYFC) invited us to shoot a temple’s Vesak Day Celebaration
5) “EYE WENT PENANG” photo sharing session.

Just collected my passport this afternoon, didnt know now we are only allowed to make 5yrs. I have bloted so much that the counter lady couldnt believe that the photo in the old passport is me. What to do, living in singapore has this kind of effect on people since good food are everywhere.:heart:

I had used film for all my participations in "Eye E City", so I decided to use film for this trip as well. I met up with Martin at Ruby to stock up some film for this trip. Initially, we wanted to get XP2 but its out of stock, so we went over to CP, where Martin stocked 6 rolls of Kodak 400CN and I gotten 6 rolls of Fuji Superia 400 instead.

Beside Superia being cheaper, since I will be doing my own scanning, I can post process into B&W. So you see, I have best of both world, smart right? :bsmilie:

Now the next question is, which camera, lens and tripod to bring.:think:
Finally, I am torn between my 2 loves, shooting and eating. Still have 3 weeks plus to decide.:think:

hi guys

sadly the registered list doesnt look not very encouraging.

we will still proceed on with the collection as plan and set off on 5th june if we have 24 participants.

inevent if we are unable to meet the required number by friday night, i will immediately contact individual to return them the money on saturday.

we will than postpone this trip to mid july.

we sincerely hope for those of you who want to go but are hesitating because of the short registered list, pls dont. it is like chicken and egg thing.

finally, i hope to see you guys tomorrow.

This is a good opportunity to explore out of Singapore and spent some time shooting in Penang. We won't be shooting touristy photos but it will be more of a photo journalistic style.

For those who are still hesitant, mai-tu-liao, it will be a fun and enriching trip. Do confirm your attendance fast! :D

Up for this wonderful Friday morning! TGIF!!

Dun get me wrong here. I dun earn commission outta this. But my spirit for this trip is good. So if you think you really need that short break from stressful work, take some time off and join us. At least personally I did. Hope to see you at Funan food court tonight. Cheers!
