i think most importantly, enjoy the whole event.
best advice! :)

just to add - shoot with frens to double the fun. very lonely if u are doing it alone. dat is, if ur motive of going is to have fun. if u are going there to win something, then shoot alone.

Tips:

1) Bring a Laptop, to view the photos. Can't trust your 1.8" or 2.0" or 2.5" or even 3" LCD.
2) An OSIM handheld messager.First AID kit.
3) Rent a vehicle - a car, motocycle or bicycle. Generous CS pls rent a mini bus to ferry.
4) If using Public transport - top up your Translink Card.
5) Name of the Competition will be change to Canon Amazing Photo Race!?!

Hehehe..

I think the most important thing besides equipment is that you shoot on your own, but possibly share transportantion fees, or cut down the costs with a few friends


Don't know if Nikonians are welcomed...:devil:

YES! be creative... think out of the box...no need to travel far far to take yr shot.
From last year experience. be creative you can create yr shot, no need to spend too much time to search for your shot.

Its going to be very tiring expecially when there are 4 topics this year. The bottom of it, enjoy with yr fellow frens to get the best shots..

Becareful of a flame war here...

I just want to add that, don't forget that you can also bring along a few friends who can be useful if you want set up a scene or something in case you think it'll fit the theme...:think:

Watch your time, or you'll find yourself rushing through the day.....:sweat: Take a few moments to digest the theme before heading out, that'll at least give you a decent headstart in what you are looking for. Or else you'll look like a headless chicken, don't know where to go.....or shoot:bsmilie:

Most importantly, have fun!
