Hello fellow clubsnappers,


Some of you may have already heard about the light displays at Marina Bay that were set up on the 15th. Wanted to try hosting an outing to photograph some cool night shots...namely : night portraits, long exposures, and abstract light art.
Those who have a 50mm prime lens can also test out some nifty bokeh shots. I had already posted a tutorial regarding custom bokeh effects in the General Discussion section. You can check it here : http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=781245




Preferable Equipment.
1. A tripod. Absolutely essential. You will be shooting at night. There will be many instances where you want to take long exposures.
2. A 50mm prime lens, mostly for those who want to try out bokeh effects. The 50mm is excellent for sharp bokehs.
3. A wide angle lens, for those 2-3 snapshots covering a larger area. You can always skip this one and take multiple pictures using a normal lens and stitch it up to make a panorama.
4. A telephoto zoom lens, because it will cover a larger area and I'm not sure how close you can get to all the exhibits.
5. Wireless flash, unnecessary except for those who want to try portrait photography outside. Don't forget a diffuser.
6. Wireless shutter release, if you have one, bring it..will help in the long exposures.


Reminders
1. Charge your batteries.
2. Make sure you have enough free space in your memory card.
3. Carry a bottle of water with you. Its easier than running around for one and missing that 'split second snapshot' moment.
4. Travel light. Do not bring unnecessary equipment. There will be quite a large crowd since the outing is on a weekend.


Date: 23rd October, 2010. Saturday
Time : 6:30pm - 11:00pm
Venue: Marina Bay
Meeting point : The Promontory @ Marina Bay
( Coz that's where the first exhibit is. Refer map here : http://www.ilightmarinabay.sg/map)




There's also a photography competition
You can view the details here : http://www.ilightmarinabay.sg/compo...etail/2010/10/28/49/-/photography-competition
The entry is free and submission is online.
The competition is open to all, residents and foreigners alike.
Those coming to this outing, I suggest you keep the competition in mind and take classic photos. What's the harm in submitting...you might win something :)



Plus, the best part is to meet new people who share common interests. Anyone is welcome to join, newbies and pros alike. Some members of my Raffles Photoclub may also participate here. Hoping to see you guys too.

LiverpoolMadman,
not a problem... there will be at least 10 other newbies with you from my own club/photography classes.
The only way to learn is to shoot :)
If you have any questions you can always ask me or one of the other senior members who will be joining us.

Please take note of the new time. Have changed it to 6:30pm. Keeping it a half hour early so I can explain some basics of night photography, long exposures, and bokeh art for the newbies.
If you already know all this well, you can just join us at 7:00pm like before.

Thank you.
