Do u notice that for places we normally go, eg BG JBP Zoo, most of the ppl there are foreigners?
Why not go to shot places where Singaporeans normally go to?
can be CBD or neighbourhood centres.
Not really to shot the ppl there, more of representing how Singapore and the ppl here is like. (the type that when Ah mao sees will miss the Tropical sun here and want to rush to Singapore one)
Close to street photography but more on the environment and and mass crowd than a few individuals. (ie u don't point ur camera to 1 or 2 person, thus easier)
it also can be at off peak time where the street is empty.
those China town type are too stereotype, thus I suggest places like Orchard Road where all the ppl and the Local spirit is.

Anyone interest and want to go togather?


here is an example from photo.net although it is not really lively, I hope for something that looks alive.

As long as we don't point at any individuals and don't try to hide the fact that we are taking picture, everything should be find.

Yah... If you don't aim at anyone, just stand there and shoot, tripod or not... the most people do is turn around take a look at the fool who's blocking the middle of the street and move on... Did that a few times on my way to work. Just smile when people look at you.

That's why I ask for a group to go togather.
When there's a group of fools doing funning things, the psyco of ppl will think that they are missing some thing themselve and not looking at us like a bunch of fools.

yes...go in group....it was 9pm at orhcard road, and i saw a group of student outside paragon there, with huge tripods and SLRs with many lens....they mount their rig in the middle of the road....

not one but abt 7-10 pple...and i think there is one instuctor running around...and one girl sitting at one corner to look after all their camera bags...

well..they are kinda careless, i saw lens lying around their bags everywhere

i think if we go in group...u won;t feel so bad as there are pple accomany u

please add on to the list for yourselve.
Just one more to hit 5 and that will be enough for a group.
Are u all free on Saturday evening, from 6-9PM we can get a lot of different lighting effect.
Bring your tripod as it will be needed when dark. I guess it will be easier to get lively photo when it is starting to get dark.

I will be shooting there this coming Friday 26th April starting from around 8.45PM.
The time is choosen purely because that I will be around the area then and don't have to travel there on purpose. (I live in jurong, a two way trip will take me 2hrs)
If any of you can join me at this time pls leave your contact here. U will definitely need a tripod. Flash is not really required. I'll be going alone if no one else will follow.

Don't worry. Sometimes soon I will go Orchard again at a more reasonble time (around 6pm Saturday). Then you should all be able to join in. This time I will be pioneering and tell u if there will be any difficulties involved.
