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


Geylang Chinese Methodist Church, Singapore

  • Nikon D7000, 35mm f1.8
  • At f2, 1/6000 seconds, ISO 100 (should have gone for f5.6, but I'm too used to shooting indoors and will go for the largest aperture by default)
  • Auto white balance, center weighted metering, aperture-priority, auto ISO 
  • Boosted fill light two stops using Picasa. I did an exposure lock on the ground, but I guess it didn't work and the exposure was thrown off by the sky and white walls.
Lots of Christians in Singapore. Small churches all over the place. This one is next to the Aljunied MRT station.

Looks a bit like some condos because half the ground floor is a parking lot, with the main building built over the cars. Couldn't fit the parking lot into the photo. Took this photo because of the windows at the bottom left. Unusual design, simple and modern. Some friends later pointed out that the windows are crucifixes. I hadn't noticed that.

The tree at the bottom right helps to balance out the photo. Most photos, you need at least three main elements to make it work. If only two, it looks too plain. This photo has the sky, building, and tree. Seriously, that small patch of green there is important.
