Hi guys, thanks for the warm responses!

Q1) meet where and what time? shoot where & what time?
A1) Meet at Tampines MRT station (Then take Bus 29 over to changi) Date is 07 MAy 2005, Time is 6.30 (or earlier if we want to take sunset as well)

Q2) 1st timer lay, can advice lens of what focal length more suitable in the case of shooting star trials in singapore?
A2) A wide lens of 24mm (on film) should be more than enough

Q3) is film more suitable? if so, what ISO? color or b&w better?
A3) I was thinking of using Provia 100F to shoot :) Maybe Velvia 50/100 will be good too :D

Q4) where u planning to go shoot???
A4) Initial plans - Changi Beach :sweat:

No cable release, nevermind but do u have IR remote? If not, then u will have to put your finger at the shutter for the whole of the 15mins exposure.. :sweat: :sweat:

28mm should be ok too. 400 film might be too much for such long exposures leh... But hey, no harm experimenting right? :)

u might wanna try a 30mins F8/infinity ISO100 for dark scene..

Negative gets better result for agar agar exposure..

Tried a 30 mins exposure on slides and got a blown out frame instead..
