Hi!
I will be visiting S'Pore after about a couple of months from now.
Apart from thousand of issues I have the issue relating to photography which is troubling me the most.
I have always done and loved nature photography rather landscape photography and to be precise I have done the mountain photography the most.
The problem is I have never ever done or thought about the cityscapes and Singapore is all about that only.
So my question is to the experts what kind of of settings I should be looking at.
I would go for Singapore Night Safari where it would be dark.
I would go for Universal Studios where we would take the rides.I loved the blurry but bright photos but never took any.
I may witness the firecrackers.
I would love to photograph the glitzy S'Pore skyline at night.
I use a NikonD5100 with 18-55 & 55-200mm lens.

Can anyone help me with the settings?
I know it is bit of a tedious job for experts

But please help.

Believe it or not, Singapore does have rural areas! Or... so I am assured; I haven't actually seen them myself .

Yes it does Nick. When you head towards Malaysia(Johor Bahru) there is jungle and nature.

Why don't you use various settings with Kolkata-at-night before going ?

How many days in SIN ?

Get a 7 year MRT card at the airport, very handy to move from one place to another.

Don't waste your time or money, on Zoo's night safari.

Look at #singapore on instagram or groups on flickr for examples and ideas.

This is what I was told by family who did it. Zoo is not bad. I like the Bird Park better. Botanical Gardens is quite a big green patch in the city centre with varied scenery including old forest. The orchid section (small fee to enter) could keep a macro photographer happy for days!

But not much on photography of cityscape.

You don't have to do more. The opportunities will reveal itself. Unless you are a paid photographer/blogger, and on a gig - In which case, you have to worry about getting into the high floors of Mandarin Oriental, Marina Bay Sand, or Swiss hotel.
