Prudential Carnival 2018

In 2018 the Singapore Prudential Carnival was organized. Compared to the one from 2019, it was bigger and composed of two areas. One focused more on the rides and games and the other one more on live bands, food and atmosphere.

The amazing thing which I felt was missing from the 2019 carnival was the second area which was made by the organizers as very instagramable with many neon signs.

Here is an example of my early neon photography works.

These were my first steps in neon photography. It is quite apparent that settings for lights, iso and aperture where not yet understood and many of the pictures are quite grainy.

Looking at more recent neon photography we can see a clear difference in understanding how the light works and camera settings work as well as model placement and model lighting.
