hey guys and gals, I suddenly have the itch to do flower macro at Botanic Garden as well as the Orchid garden found therein.

It has been a long long while since I last do macro, think I should do something to add to my flower portfolio.


Newbies can come too. I don't mind sharing experience and giving hands-on advice. Anyone interested can leave a note here or PM me. I will still go (I hope) regardless of photographer strength.

Place: Botanic Garden
Date: 20th March
Time: Tentatively 9am (I want to catch the morning dew!!! or should I go at 8am??? :think: )

Equipment to bring:
i) SLR, DSLR with macro lens or Digital Compact with macro feature
ii) tripod
iii) cable/remote release
iv) diffuser (to be used under strong lighting to soften the light)
v) reflector (to bounce light for shadow area) : can be custom-made using white card or card wrapped with aluminium foil
vi) a pair of small scissor (to do abit of gardening, I mean to remove tiny distracting leaves/twigs)

Above are not all necessary, just bring what you have, we can share using...

I am interested. but dun have all the gears and equipment, just one camera.
But morning got to run some errands first.

Must we go so early to get dew, cant we just spray some water on flower to simulate? :bsmilie:
But i guess lighting will be different..

Heh heh.

I will be long rangering myself tomm. See you guys around. Hopefully not too many people, if not all the buggers will fly away.

But most importantly, pray for good weather! Today's was TERRIBLE.
