You will photograph Chinatown by night from interesting vantage points and angles, and venturing into back lanes and main streets to discover its hidden gems. You will learn to work with your camera settings to photograph in various lightings as the day changes from twilight into the night. Architectural photography is equally interesting on this route. There are rows of colourful post-war buildings built in the early 1900s with a design that is uniquely found in Singapore only. These shophouses are Singapore's heritage. Most of them are lit up at night with vibrant lightings. Walking on its five footway, which is a pedestrian walkway, gives you a closer look at the distinctive decorative features and finishes. From here, you will continue towards the colourful and bustling night street of Chinatown to capture some street scenes including people and light trails from moving traffics. The workshop ends in the heart of Chinatown.

The evening with Caroline was fantastic. Caroline showed me a variety of sites to photograph in Singapore.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time, building knowledge of the area and getting a better understanding of photographing at night time.   ~~~~~  Lisa G
