Just get on a bus that passes by Henderson road; there will be stairs from the road going up the bridge high above it.

Or try getting to this bus stop: bus stop

I'll be there in the afternoon but I need to mozey along in the evening to the city to watch F1 from an undisclosed building :wink:

I'm keen if this is still happening! I've just moved here and would really like to learn - I have a canon s90 and hope it will be ok.

Let me know!

Judging from the response to the epg email, i'm pleased to announce the next meetup.

Date: 30th October 2010, Saturday.
Time: 1pm
Place to meet: Punggol MRT Station.
Location of shoot: Punggol Beach/Lalang Field/Jetty

An excerpt from a website
Punggol (MRT: Punggol, then taxi or bus 82 to the end of Punggol Road)

"A haven for landscape photo fans. When you’re standing on Punggol beach, you’re actually closer to Johor, Malaysia than Singapore’s CBD – and you feel a world away. With its L-shaped jetty and mosscovered rocks that peep out from the blanket of sand at low tide, this undeveloped shore is one of the few places where you can see fishermen casting nets and setting crab cages. As an extra bonus, just minutes off Punggol’s main road, you’ll find wide-open fields full of swaying, feathery Lalang grass with just an occasional wide-canopied tree to break your line of vision. A rare chance to take a landscape shot without a high-rise looming into view."

Photography Focus

Camera Handling & Manual Mode

For this session, I will be teaching basic camera handling such as Subject Framing, ISO, White Balance, Shutter Speed & Aperture. Also I will be looking to share on shooting Manual Mode and getting out of the Auto Mode, to get a full control of your DSLR.

This meetup is useful for those who have been shooting on AUTO MODE all along and wants to explore further, as well as new owners of DSLR and would like to know more of the basics of photography.

For those experienced photographers joining in this group, I strongly encourage you to share your wealth of expertise with the group.

Here in Expats Photography Group its only - Learn & Share

I certainly hope that you guys can invite your fellow mates to join in the group as well even if it's with a digicam.

I am no expert to photography, but during the session, if you need clarifications on anything, feel free to ask. :)

I sincerely hope you will find this meetup beneficial.

At the end of the meetup, I would appreciate feedbacks of the meetup as i'm constantly seeking ways to further improve the meetup.

Thus, I would appreciate it, if those who are attending this meetup, to email me at expatsphotographygroup@yahoo.com.au, indicating your attendance, contact number and name.

Thank you and I hope to see you guys at the event!

Hell; I'll go even if it's just to get away from "the city."

See you there, mate.

Hey mate, glad you asked!

Well, if you'd like to shoot sunset, then, a tripod would be essential, no harm in bringing tripod stand as, we could use that for our group photo!

prkravi, see you at the event mate!

Cheers!
