The Walkabout:

This walkabout starts in the morning at 9 am. First, we get to an elevated site for a picturesque bird’s eye view of Singapore. A great spot to photograph interesting angles, landscape and architecture of the city as well as Chinatown. We will go through your camera settings, giving you the first few tips on photography techniques for you to jumpstart this morning's photography journey.

Back to the street level, we will venture through the back lane of Chinatown seeing locals going about with their every day life. We get to photograph rows of colourful post war buildings built between 1800s and 1900s. These shophouses are Singapore's heritage. Walking on its five foot way, which is a pedestrian walkway, gives you a closer look at the distinctive decorative features and finishes. 

We continue our street photography towards the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. There will be quite a hustle and bustle going around the area. Right next to the temple is the busy Chinatown wet market which we will capture some images of vendors in their morning rush. At the corner, senior citizens can be seen congregating for a match of Chinese chess. From here, we will wander into the colourful and bustling street of Chinatown. Photography will be endless until we end at around lunch time in the heart of Chinatown.
