14. NEW SKILLS. Acquire digital photography skills. Tourism photography

May 8, 2018, 10 am - 11.30 am. Bright sunshine.  Esplanade and Merlion, Singapore. Tourists.
Acquire skills of digital photography by practice.

I share how the following photos were taken by me.

CAMERA
Canon DSLR EOS 70D, Lens  EFS 55-250mm


P mode, AF, Stabiliser On, One point AF, Continuous Mode 

SOFTWARE
Photoshop Adobe CC




It takes around 3 hours to process selected photos for posting on this webpage.


Young people must have the 4 virtues:
persistence, determination, confidence and humility.
Learn to cultivate a clear mindset and not let negative thoughts get in the way.
Acquire new skills like digital photography.  





At the Esplanade















A tour manager needs to account for the number of travellers before the coach moves to a new destination. Much stress for her since many travellers do not bother to be punctual or be together.  




Use shadow/highlights in Adobe to lighten up the face. It was in deep shadows originally.

A Singapore tour guide managed to elicit smiles from the presentation.

At the Merlion




At this spot, many tourists pose with "surrender" hands. I cannot figure why.

Tourists enjoy taking photos in the Merlion area. In December 2017, the Merlion was dirty and the spout had rust stains. I wrote to the Singapore Tourism Board to let the officials know it was an eye sore for photographers. No reply from the Board. Today, I note the Merlion had been painted white and looks great on photography.
