Hi all,

Starting this thread for newbies who want to shoot fireworks but are not free on National Day itself.

Date: 26/07/2003 Saturday
Time: 6.30pm meet @ Lavendar MRT station control
Venue: Kallang River Park (opposite Tanjong Rhu condos)

basically, do come if you have never taken photos of fireworks before and want to join in the fun. For those who do not know how to get to Kallang River Park, let's meet at Lavendar MRT station at 6.30pm. We'll take a 15-minute walk to the park to set up the stuff.

Things to bring:
Camera + film
Tripod
cable release
yourself!

Here's roughly where I hope to shoot from:

...where the star is.

for those who have not tried shooting with slides, this is a good time to try ;)

Please PM with your nick if you want to meet at Lavendar MRT. Hope to see some folks there!

regards
Andrew

Let's hope it doesn't rain. I've got a few rolls of Provia to spare but strongly suggest Velvia or Kodak Elitechome EC. Very saturated.

But does velvia discolour if exposed for a very long time?

It is quite a good location for because we won't have to contend with the traffic jams that builds up at Tanjong Rhu. It is also good more accessible by public transport. Although there's a bus that goes into Tanjong Rhu, that tends to get caught in the jam along with the rest of the cars. From Lavendar MRT station, Kallang River park (or more correctly, Marina Prominade is the actual name but none of my friends seem to know where it is when I use the name :dunno: ) is about 10 to 15 minutes walk along the river. If we cut across the roads and Beach Road area, it's even shorter.

As for Velvia discolouring under long exposure, so far I've not had that experience when shooting night scenes. I think discoloration occurs when the film is overexposed under daylight conditions. Night scenes with fireworks should be ok. For those of us who can't afford Velvia ($9+ per roll ;p), we can try Kodak Elite Chrome EC 100 ($7 at Ruby) which gives very saturated colours too. Whatever it is, just have fun :D

ok, please PM your names to me so that I can collate a list and look out for all of you at Lavendar around 6.30pm. Otherwise it's going to be quite a mess...:confused:

dun worry about what kind of camera you have. most importantly, bring a tripod and (if possible, a cable release).

by the way, the shoot is on 26/7/2003

regards
