    Was at Sentosa beach today and it was scorching hot. Do bring water and wear t-shirt. Ensure rain repellent equipment is at hand in case there is really a storm.

    There WILL be a lot of walking and one of the main things we can shoot is a protest happening in Hong Lim Park tomorrow. So be mentally prepared.

  • Walk Update No. 2 - Administration

    Admin Notice:
    Those who are not able to make it, please remove your name from the walkers list to facilitate those who are still waiting to join us.

    Thank for your cooperation.

    Here are Details of the Workshop:

    David will be covering very briefly, history of street photography, the motivation behind street photography and the philosophy behind this genre of photography.

    Using photos from his photo hunts at Little India, Orchard Road and the streets of Shinjuku and Shibuya in Japan, David will also cover the finer points of street photography, mainly:

    1. Walking the streets – what to see, how to see
    2. How to photograph strangers on the streets, and how to gain access to people
    3. Seeing the light – how to use light to your advantage
    4. Composition of the street – how to compose a photo based on the randomness of the
    street
    5. How to manage exposure and focus in a fast changing environment
    6. How to make a unique visual statement

    Participants will also be walked through a set of photos on Shibuya Crossings, a sub-project within Tokyo Dreaming, a long term project on the streets of Tokyo, to see how the principles covered were put in place. Using short video clips filmed on the streets of Tokyo, participants will be able to see how David approach his subjects, and by going through each photo in turn, you will also see how light and composition were used in creating
    those photos.

  • Street Photography Workshop, High Tea and After Walk Party

    Hello everyone,

    This is Wilson the walk leader for the Singapore Civic Trail on the 5th October 2013.

    Just to update everyone one what has happened since the walk registration started.

    a) Workshop and High Tea

    With the help of The Photographers’ Guild at the Arts House, they have graciously provided us a place to do a workshop prior to the walk itself. And we are also working with the caterer to provide High Tea during the workshop so everyone will be comfortable and can network prior to the walk.

    b) Photo Critique session and Party (own fees)

    I will be conducting a short post photowalk photo critique session and then we will go to somewhere nearby for dinner and booze (Timbre perhaps?) to round up the day of shooting.

    Do note: the walk itself is free and I am not charging to lead the walk. However the workshop, the place and food are chargeable but it is reasonably charged for a place such as Arts House. If you are interested to join in the workshop and high tea prior to the walk itself, please email me at wilswong@wilzworkz.com
