Photography buddies?

Postby Jessica16 » Sat, 29 Aug 2009 8:59 pm

Hello,

Been in Singapore for 1 year now, but looking for some people interested in exploring the city with their DSLR's. Just purchased my first one and would love to learn more about all its features without having to pay for a course. Anyone interested in helping me out with some photography tips?

I work full-time as a teacher so would only be able to do this on evenings and weekends.

Hello!

Nice to meet you :) Wow, so you just got your first dslr! Such exciting times! I am sure you will enjoy every moment playing around with it. I've been to a couple of courses some time ago and have been hanging out with a bunch of guys taking pictures all over the shop. Would love to help you out.

Drop me a line :)

Hello!

Also just bought a DSLR and would love to go and shoot stuff. Maybe we can organize a walking shoot in this board? FYI, I work almost regular office hours.

Cheers

Thanks to all those who replied! Since I am unable to PM - Zackisarobot: would like to know more about how often or what times you and your friends usually shoot? Maybe I can join, along with the others in this chat.

Away this weekend but would like to start something up for next weekend if possible - my email is jesscampbell16@hotmail.com - looking forward to starting up a little photography course of our own!

Hello, all,

A friend forwarded this to me (Army Open House):
a very interesting event to go to. http://www.mindef.gov.sg/aoh09/

What to expect?

BIG things, Air and Land stuff.

If I remb correctly, lens is limited to max 300mm ( they never mention you cannot bring a 2x multiplier)


Lots of stuff to shoot there, pun intended. I'll try to go this Saturday after a paintball thing we have, probably after 5 pm. If not, Sunday.

Hello friends :D

Hows everyone doing? Good I hope! There's a newly opened park at diary farm road (near bukit timah nature reserve), Diary Farm Nature Park : http://butterflycircle.blogspot.com/200 ... ature.html. I was thinking of perhaps meeting up for some coffee afternoon-ish or evening-ish this thursday 10 Sep then hanging around the place and taking some nice pictures :)

Anyone wanna come? I think it'll be quite interesting :)

(Sorry i cant pm anyone so you may drop me a line at zackisarobot@gmail.com)

Hey Everyone!

Sorry it's been a while for this thing to get together. Wasn't able to make it out to the park this evening, but if anyone is interested in going to dairy farm nature park (does anyone know why it is named this?) on Saturday afternoon, I will be there. We can all meet around 3pm. If you're interested, send me an email and I will set up a mailing list with a good place to meet (any suggestions? I am not from that area of the city).

Looking forward to some great photo-taking!

Thinking that with next weekend being the long weekend and the following being the F1 we should probably plan something mid-week. I'm thinking Tuesday, Sept.22 at 5pm we meet for some street photography this time. Anyone interested in walking through Chinatown?? We'd probably have a good couple of hours before it gets dark and then for anyone interested in night photography could stay out a little longer.

send me a reply with your email if you are interested in being on the mailing list - or let me know if you'll be there - Chinatown - Tuesday - 5pm.

See you there!
