Sir Mart Outdoorgraphy™ 12:53am, 15 May 2009
It's been a year now since I've been active in Flickr, and I know that because the 1st event that I started to shoot with New2mac is Dragon Boat Festival.

Now, the even is around the corner and I would like my friends from Penang Flickr to join and shoot at this spectacular event.


Click the image to go the the website for details on the race.

There are many things to shoot there guys, from landscape to portraits to anything you could think of. The participants are sporting and really nice and we had lots of fun shooting there last year.

As I remembered, Mac and I spent 3 days shooting there.

You could check out this link :D

Some tips,
At least 200mm lens :D - longer range lens would be much better :D
Towel & mineral water is a must.
If possible, go by bike since you can enter the area directly, if by car we have to leave the car and walk to the end of the dam.

200mm lens??haha...i just only 70mm lens...
betricelai : still no prob, you could shoot the whole scenery :D. I mean 200mm should be great to shoot close-up shots of the participants.
Jom jom!!

Bump!! Hope to see you guys tomorrow... I might be going around 2pm. Maybe if got kaki, lepak till night for the show.
Sorry to my friends who went, including Zuwandi who called me from the dam, I was so tired today... can't make it to the event. Luckily I went yesterday. At least got some pics.

I'm sure who went today got better pics & portraits as it's the international event..

I was at my son's sports day till noon.. Still I shoot something.. haha
