Flying drone in Singapore

Drone flying in Singapore

Last week I had a quick last-minute plan to meet with a couple of my friends to discuss our impending overseas photography adventure and also did a droning session at the open field near Marina Coastal Drive.

Blue Hour at Marina Bay

Dear friends, many of you should have heard of blue or golden hour photography. I like to touch on the blue hour, which arrives shortly after sunset when the sun's position is just below the horizon and produces those cooler tones. But it doesn't span an hour, it lasts only about 20-30min. In Singapore, our sunset is around 6.50 pm, so the blue hour lasts about 7 pm - 7.30 pm. In this article, like to share some pictures shot during the blue hour at Marina Bay....
