came back from the event, just a few thoughts from me for those who are going...

1. be early to chop the best 'seats'..
2. no flash is allowed.. (so leave your speedlights at home..) ;)
3. bring the lens with the largest aperture, IS/VR is really handy, boost ISO to 800 or even higher if necc..
4. tripods can be deployed as long as it is not blocking the audience..
5. for those who like loud music/pyrotechnics/fire performances will like this event.
6. there is a short 1min or so fireworks segment, nothing too fanciful though, at the end of the performance (the show is est. 1hr 15mins) :think:

lastly, enjoy the show!

how far were you from the performance? What's the focal length you use to take the whole stage?

was about 3m? from the performing area, it is not an elevated stage btw..

here are 3 samples at 12mm (tokina 12-24 f4)..
do pardon my photo composition skills.. the little boy infront of me was quite excited and was kinda blocked by him quite a few times.. :embrass:

thanks for sharing FilterFunk, now i've a rough idea on the stage layout and where to stand =p might be heading there tml night if there isn't any problems with my plans
do note there is a huge fan like structure on the right of the boy on the 3rd pic..

you might want to siam that area if you dont want to include that in your WA framing.. :sweat:

also worth noting is the number of small spot lights laid on the ground.. :think:
