Positioning your image 20:57
Hi guys, hope the review session gave you some insights to what a review session may be like. In order for future review sessions to be more interactive, it would be great if everyone will start shooting MORE! Be it on a fieldtrip we organise or on your personal outing, feel free to share them during the review session. In that way, it will make things more interactive and fun! And certainly, I believe that all of us will get to learn more from each other. After all, we each have our own style of taking pictures. To those that have bravely come up to share your your personal thoughts of your picture, I believe that it has been an encouragement to many, and I hope many more will come foward to share. Great to see many of you guys staying back to have fun as well as getting to know others and tools of the trade better! Hope that in the time to come, many more will be as interactive as you guys. =D
During the review session, I believe that someone actually asked about positioning your image(subject) so that it will be parallel to the side of the picture. From my point of view, I feel that it is a good way of taking a picture. Who says pictures have to be straight all the time right? ha. Personally, I love taking pictures differently from many. I prefer my pictures to have a little slant, depending on what picture it is. It doesn't have to be parallel all the time. Just a slight slant in angle will give you a different perspective when looking at a picture.
Here's some examples of what has been asked. Note that the side(left/right) of the image is made parallel with the subject in mind.
Should you guys have any questions feel free to foward them to me. =D I'm not that a pro but I'll help with whatever knowledge I've learnt from others. Do email/msn me at email@example.com
Have fun shooting!

Kallang Stadium Outing 10.05.08 00:19
Had fun today guys? I know some of you felt that the outing was crap, boring, nothing to shoot etc etc. But, stop and think about what photography really is. Or perhaps what was your initial reason to join the club? I certainly do not believe that there's such a thing as nothing to shoot because photography is all about looking at your own perspective of looking at things and not how things are gonna look at you. The weather was certainly in favour of us. It was neither too hot nor did it rain heavily.
I just hope that everyone will be able to actively participate in the following events that are coming as well as our review session which is compulsory for all. I believe that this will tell us who our active and serious members are.
To all those that have shown their optimistic attitude today, thank you so much. It really is an encouragement for our committee members.
Thank you all so much once again, and we hope to see you at our upcoming events, and perhaps this coming wednesday at the stadium where YOU guys will be shooting for a sports event!

2nd ASEAN+3 Youth Festival 18:50
Capture Nature is an annual environmental digital photography competition initiated by a group of students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Started in 2007, the event allows the passion youths have for photography to be channelled towards environmental awareness, conservation and action. This year, the competition will be held in conjunction with the ASEAN+3 Youth Festival, a youth-for-youth initiative supported by the National Youth Council, Singapore.
The theme of this competition is "Global Warming". Citizens or Permanent Residents from ASEAN + 3 countries who are aged between 18 and 25 are eligible to participate.
This environmental digital photography competition is initiated to allow youths to learn about environmental issues through experiential learning. The objectives of this competition are:
a. Promote better understanding about the current environmental situations of ASEAN+3 countries and in turn promote better understanding among the youth of ASEAN nations through photo taking,
b. Provide a catalyst to spark an interest in participating in environmental activities by exposing youth to the nature and
c. Educate youths on the impact of global warming.
Pls refer to the website for more details on the competition and the rules and regulations. The application form is also downloadable from: www.aseanyouthfestival.org/capturenature
