The timing of the event stretches from 9am to 4pm.
- You would like to come and shoot in the morning till afternnon.
- Or afternoon to 4pm
- Or the whole day

Do let me know ur interests so i can plan out the manpower for the shooting.

For soccer actions, long lens is preferred as you can distance yourself further away from the activity and the ball may not hit you.

For other activities any lenses will be ok.
Camera type: any, as long as u feel comfortable to shoot with.

Date: 24 May (Saturday)

Venue: Physical Education And Sports Teacher Academy (PESTA) - 2 Malan Road Singapore[masked]

Photos to capture:
Group interaction, group bonding moments during the event.

The organizer for the event will meet all of us on the actual name and obtain our emails. thereafter we can send her the photos we have taken for that day.

She do request to keep her informed if there is any photos we wish to share on social media from the event and thereafter she can advise us on which photos we can share or it would be better advised not to share.

    Hi Everyone, for those viewing thru the photo album, we had a great time covering this soccer event, no doubt the weather was hot, but the photo taking turn-out fine and the actions good. For myself, Stephen, Rex & MagTY straight after been brief by the organzier on the background of the event as well as the photos to capture, straight we went to look for our spots and the different angles to cover the event. Im proud to say, though 1 field at the same location and yet through our own creativity and experiences we took the photos in a different approach and expressed our stories of the event in different ways.
    All 4 of us worked well and enjoyed ourselves in this event, though physically drain from the scorching sun, we had a great time shooting and sharing the photos we have taken =D
    hope you and anyone viewing this album will enjoy as much as we did too. =)
