I'm a Singapore event photographer; specializing in corporate events, weddings and birthday parties.


Apartments along River Valley Road, Singapore

  • Nikon D7000 and 18-200mm f3.5-5.6
  • At 50mm, f4.8, ISO 100, 1/180 seconds

Cloudy afternoon, but still lots of light. I set auto-ISO minimum shutter speed as 1/60 seconds, and still managed to stay at ISO 100. Outdoors photography is easy.

Center-weighted metering. I knew there would be no problems with this scene, especially with Active D-Lighting. Aperture priority, set to maximum aperture. The fractional stop f4.8 is of course due to the variable maximum aperture zoom.
Four separate apartment buildings, compressed together by the telephoto perspective. It's the colored one on the left that makes it work, otherwise the photo would be rather plain. Yes, blue sky is fake, courtesy of Picasa.

Just happened to be there, but I did have to walk around a bit to get the best angle. Three layers - sky, buildings, trees - adds balance and interest to the photo.
