Marina Bay Sands


Almost two years ago, I had the opportunity to go to Singapore and actually stay at the Marina Bay Sands.  It was an “all-expense” paid trip as part of the Kraft iTaste program, and one night, I decided to slip out and shoot.  Everyone was tired after doing the night safari and had gone to bed, so I was alone.  I went for a walk, armed with my Pentax k-x and Gorillapod, to see part of the city at night and to shoot the hotel – it’s a pretty impressive structure, both day and night.  I didn’t get very far since it was late, but mainly because I focused on shooting the hotel and as a result stayed close by.  I took my time, trying different spots, moving around to include or remove certain elements from the frame.  The Gorillapod sure came in handy, providing an easy way to mount the camera to the bridge railings by simply wrapping the legs around them.  I stayed out for several hours and finally came back at around two in the morning.  It turned out to be a really good shoot and I came back with a few keepers.  Some of them I’ve posted before, but here’s another one to add to the list.

If you are wondering how I got the starburst effect, I shot at a small aperture of f/22.
