[SAFRA Photo Convention]
Win a free ticket. Submit your story by Friday noon. One winner per week.

With our theme of emphasising the significance of National Service and the upholding of peace in this year's SAFRA Photo Convention, we would like everybody to share inspirational stories related to Singapore's National Service!

Email them to, with your full name according to your NRIC, NRIC/passport number and contact number.

The stories of us and our friends during our National Service days. The fun and excitement of being in camp. Continuing our camaraderie as NSmen, as we progress on in our careers and family life. Stories that we still enjoy recounting as we meet up with our old comrades.

This submission is open to anybody, citizen or non-citizen. We want to hear how Singapore's National Service has been an inspiration to you. From the perspective of a girlfriend, a wife, a parent or a foreigner, if you feel the sense of purpose and would like to share words of encouragement, we would like you to share that experience with everybody. We will endeavour to publish all positive stories.

Every week, beginning on 1st Nov, one lucky published winner will be entitled to a free ticket to the Convention held on Saturday 23rd Nov, it comes with all programme and goodie bag entitlements. The cut-off time for each week's lucky draw will be at 12pm on Friday. Submissions after 12pm will be put to the following week's lucky draw. Final date of submission is 12pm Friday 22nd Nov 2013. The weekly lucky draw winner will be published on every Saturday.

The weekly winning story and excerpts of some interesting submissions will also be shared on SAFRA Photo Club's Facebook page.

There will also be an overall winning entry to be picked from all published stories on SAFRA Photo Club's Facebook page. This entry will be determined by the most number of "Likes" as of 12pm Friday 22nd Nov 2013. The prize for this will be announced in mid Nov and given out during the convention on 23rd Nov.

Terms and Conditions:
Submission of different stories by the same person is allowed. Each submission is regarded as one story.

A story can only win the weekly lucky draw once during the whole period of submission up to the final date. However, it is eligible for the overall winning entry by popularity in the club's Facebook page.

Winners will be notified by your submitted contact number and your NRIC/passport will be required for verification upon collection of your prize.

[Newsy Wednesday] Winning Travel Photos
My favorite would have to be the ferry leaving harbour in a storm. A few of them featured mist covered landscape, which are all breath-taking too.

[Monday Gadgets] Rumour has it ...
The medium format and large format has interchangeable backs for a long time. But nobody seems to demand for the same on a DSLR, probably because buying a new DLSR body is just afordable enough.

But, what if there is an interchangeable sensor?? How will it change the way you capture light? Will you shoot more Monochrome? more IR? maybe separate sensor for stills and video? Will we still need filters? or will filters be built into the sensor?

[Fun Friday] Drenched Outing
During the Basic Digital photography course night outing, it suddenly rained heavily for close to an hour. Instead of just sitting around getting wet, we just picked a nearby subject to practice exposure compensation.
The deliberately underexposed photo, shows the colour of the lights more vividly, while others make the shadows more obvious.
Finally the rain stopped, and we were able to continue with the practice, instead of just shooting lights and shadows. ;-)
