Nightlife in Singapore – A photographer’s perspective

Apart from being a sprawling metropolis, Singapore is also a fabulous photographic destination. At dusk, Singapore transforms itself into a glittering extravaganza of light and colour that makes it irresistible for photographers. A creative eye, a decent camera and a tripod is all that you need to photograph this vibrant city at night. From popular tourist attractions like the Merlion Park to the lesser known Johor Straits, you have an ample choice of hotspots to explore and capture.

Antara Sharma is a software engineer by profession and extremely passionate about photography. Her passion for photography has stemmed from her undying love towards nature and wildlife, which is reflected in most of her earlier images. Gradually, however, Antara has managed to venture into travel, food and architecture photography. Her current camera gear includes a Sony A7R II and a Nikon D500, accompanied by a wide variety of lenses.

Hi-tech Tokyo

Sam Pritchard is captivated by Japan’s futuristic architecture at night.

Tokyo has been destroyed and reconstructed twice in the twentieth century, so compared to London and other European cities that exhibit more of a fusion of classical and modern architecture, Tokyo’s skyline and fabric appears to be more modern, consisting largely of buildings built during the bubble economy. Buildings made of stone or brick are an exception – everything seems to be clad in glass, tile or synthetic material. There are hardly any arches either – everything is straight lines and the sloped angles of the upper floors of apartment buildings seem synonymous with Tokyo. This adds to the Lego-like appearance.

The high population density requires that available living space is used efficiently and innovatively, so you can find anything from sports grounds to driving schools on the rooftops. This density and constant activity give it a futuristic vibe, while the fluorescent neon signage illuminates the city at night.

Gran Esfuerzo, Inmedible Recompensa | Pedro Fernández Aguado

Unas personas antes, y otras después, descubrimos a través de la experiencia que a nadie le regalan nada. Si queremos obtener lo que anhelamos debemos ser perseverantes en nuestros esfuerzos, aplicar la máxima fotográfica del ensayo y error en cada paso que damos y, sobre todo, no debemos tirar nunca la toalla dejando escapar, de esa forma, nuestros sueños. Porque todo llega, aunque la senda no sea precisamente un camino de rosas.
