Hi all photographers! :)

May I know where are the best places for photography in Singapore though I'm using a semipro camera with manual settings.

So far I have went to:

1. Esplanade (Merlion)
2. Shenton Way
3. Chinatown
4. Toa Payoh Town Park
5. Singapore Botanic Garden
6. Singapore Jurong Bird Park
7. HortPark
8. Kent Ridge Park
9. Singapore Chinese Garden & Singapore Japanese Garden

Well, was thinking to go Marina Barrage though and other places. But when I'm trying to crack my brain for Singapore Photography places to go, I tend to have a "headache". I feel like wanna go take some neighbourhood photos but my neighbourhood is kinda boring with no good shots to take. I guess I'm a newbie to photography? Because I started photography last May. :angel:

here are some other locations for you:

1) changi boardwalk
2) pulau ubin
3) punggol end beach
4) labrador park
5) vivocity (rooftop and building interior, exterior)
6) kallang basin
7) lower peirce reservoir
8) macritchie reservoir
9) upper peirce reservoir
10) bedok reservoir
11) tiong bahru area


when you have done all that, you can ask again. singapore has so many places to shoot.

in any case, going back to the same location many times doesn't mean you get boring shots. maybe the lighting is more suitable for the shot. maybe you see something new. an intimate exploration of the place, with numerous good pictures with suitable lighting is much preferred to be honest, than a quantity > quality approach where you capture places in singapore like you capture pokemon cards, but nothing is particularly impressive.

Sweet!! :thumbsup:

Is your 1st photo of sunset a HDR? or did you used a Circular Polarizer?
it is a composite of 3 shots of the same scene, different exposures, use layer and selectively erase.

can be considered HDR, probably more accurately described as DRI. (dynamic range increase)

What semi pro camera are you using?
I personally think Botanic Gardens is a very nice place to shoot at, relax at the same time. :)
Especially during weekends. Have a try :D

There's a new stretch of road in Seng Kang, deserted but really nice place. Not sure what's the name of the road, but I know it's towards the direction of the sports stadium if you're walking from the MRT which takes about 15-20mins. Explored a bit and discovered there's a new park at the opposite end of the road as well. ;)

I see! This stretch of road is very quiet all day so good for a nice jog in morning or evening. :)

For a newbie, you seem to have 'shot' at many places already. But photography is not about 'been there, done that' once. I tend to visit a place over and over, and at different times/seasons. If one is observant, there are always things to shoot, perhaps from another angle, or different composition, etc. Experiment. Allow your 'creative juices' to flow, and you might be pleasantly surprised sometimes by some very nice shots. All depends on your interests, e.g. nature, macros, people, candids, landscape, cityscapes, nightscapes, etc. Do give concerts, performance, dances a try to? Have you tried shooting children?

Just some ideas...
