Night @ The National Stadium

Talking about making pictures of our National Stadium, it all started with news of the stadium demolition for a brand new design. The stadium will be officially closed own on 30 June 2007, Saturday. A closing ceremony will be held there to mark this historical event.

News broke out since last September. I went there with a fellow night photographer, Selina. We did make a few pictures but we didn't stay long. It was like our first trial and when I got back my negatives, they turn out great. I told myself I have to go back there to make many more photos of the stadium. And I did. But today I'm not able to upload those photos here as I didn't get them scanned. I will and upload them as soon as it's ready.

It was after about 6 months later, I went back with 2 other photographers who are keen in night photography. (I'll try to feature their work here soon.) I took a roll of Fuiji color negative film, Superia 400 on a Nikon FM10. Yes I did mention before that taking night pictures with color negatives isn't as good as taking it with slide film, be it in 135 or 120 format. But I was willingly to try it out, even without filter lens. Anyway I have in mind of converting all color pictures into black & white.

So here they are.

I'm Back Again

Well what can I say? It's been a long long time since I last wrote blog or update this blog of mine. Almost 7 months. Where was I? You would ask. There are changes to as I have had to re-register by creating a new account in Google's gmail. Well I had thought of signing up before, but no action was taken. Procrastination.

Anyway I'm back again and during all those times, I was still doing night photography. Mainly focusing on my Night Projekts as I mentioned before, this is my long-term personal photographic project. It meant alot to me. I'm in the midst of getting a brand new PC (or Mac if I'm able to pay by instalment), so for the time being, I'm using my office's computer.

A few weeks ago I did some night photography at our National Stadium. News were out that our great old National Stadium will be giving way to a brand new one in 2010 (I think, or later year). It will be officially close down on 30 June 2007 and there'll be a closing ceremony to mark this historical event. Starting from mid-April til end of June, Singapore Sports Council (SSC) is organising tours on every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday form 10am - 2pm. SSC, collaboratiing with Photographic Society of Singapore (PSS) in organising a photographic contest.

I'll post some of those photo I made soon. Do come back and keep a lookout.
