instasg One more sleep before the January 2015 Instameet! We have the privilege to have Bryan with us tomorrow, as he will share about portrait photography. Be there at the SMU Administration Building tomorrow before 10 AM! It's the building next to NTUC Income building. Please make your way to Function Room 4-1 (level 4). Join us as we have collaboration with @smusaic (the photography club of SMU) to learn this.

Don't worry about your gear, as it wouldn't be so technical, and instead we want you to understand the idea and best practices. Please feel confident to come with mobile device, as we believe you too can capture great portrait with it. Grab your friends who don't mind to be your model for the day, otherwise we would have few gorgeous volunteer instagramers who don't mind to be in your frame for the day.

Feel free to tag your friends too, it would be a great time learning and practicing together. 👥 --- #instameetsgJan15 ---

instasg Congrats to @bryankitf, for the title of "Best of Singapore 2015 in Wedding Photography", you did it again!

We have the privilege to have Bryan with us this Saturday at SMU, as he will share about portrait photography. Not only for those behind the camera, but also for those who want to be more confident in front of camera. It's open for everyone! Join us as we have collaboration with @smusaic (the photography club of SMU) to learn this.

Don't worry about your gear, as it wouldn't be so technical, and instead we want you to understand the idea and best practices. Please feel confident to come with mobile device only, as we believe you too can capture great portrait with it. Grab your friends who don't mind to be your model for the day, otherwise we would have few gorgeous volunteer instagramers who don't mind to be in your frame for the day.

As the campus is a controlled environment, we need you to express your interest here so that we can list down the names to be submitted to the campus security. This registration is not for selection, as everyone is welcome - we have a room with capacity of 100 people so no worries! It is just a security procedure as guests have to register before entering the campus. Please let us know if you are coming, by a comment below!

Feel free to tag your friends too, it would be a great time learning and practicing together. --- #instameetsgJan15 ---

instasg We have been so busy with exclusive instameets in January, and finally we can have one for all, just on the last day of the month!

It's open for everyone! Join us as we have collaboration with @smusaic (the photography club of SMU) to learn portrait photography. @bryankitf - Bryan Foong, the Nikon ambassador and awards winning wedding photographer will share his professional experience with us on how to capture great portrait. Not only for those behind the camera, he would be able to share few tips for those who'd like to be more confident in front of camera too.

On the day, after Bryan shares with us, we will have an hour practice around the campus, and after that we would browse the tagged pictures as Bryan would share more tips based on your picture.

Don't worry about your gear, as it wouldn't be so technical, and instead we want you to understand the idea and best practices. Please feel confident to come with mobile device only, as we believe you too can capture great portrait with it. Grab your friends who don't mind to be your model for the day, otherwise we would have few gorgeous volunteer instagramers who don't mind to be in your frame for the day.

Mark the calendar, as we will announce
more details in the next few days. We are excited as we get a chance to learn something great in this instameet, thanks to @bryankitf who doesn't mind to share with us, and fantastic team of @smusaic - as we look forward to more collaborations in photography.

Feel free to tag your friends so they are not left behind! --- #instameetsgJan15 ---

instasg We've told you about #photopaddle! An interesting initiative by @PUBsingapore and we are excited to be invited. On Saturday, Jan 24th, 1:45PM we will visit MacRitchie for this exciting and unique gramming opportunity. We are expecting to wrap up at 5 PM on the day. The idea is kayaking and snapping some cool pictures from the water. It's definitely going be a new perspective, not the usual pictures of MacRitchie you've always seen on instagram.

@PUBsingapore will give us waterproof casing for your mobile (for you to keep). It's a gift from them, and beside the waterproof casing, they said they have some gifts for Instagramers too - hey, Makan is also provided! It's limited for 26 instagramers only - so it's time now to raise your hand.

Who wants to join us? Please leave a comment below to express your interest. You can tag your friends too but if you want to join, make sure it's clear that you also want to join and not just want to tag your friend. Also, please make sure you are available before 'choping' as we try to avoid receiving the message "sorry I cannot join" when we send you the DM - well, unless something really comes up last minute. Please note too that it's not by "first comment first chope", and it's never too late to express your interest until we push another post announcing that we have sent the DM. We will start shortlisting on Sunday and we will send DM to shortlisted instagramers to share the brief.

Ok show hand, who wants to join? Let's Instagram #ABCwaters ! -- all pictures are courtesy of @julian_cheong, the InstaSG manIGer that perhaps lives here, or his girlfriend lives here (judging from his many pictures of MacRitchie).

-- if you organize a photowalk, let us know and we will share it with igers --
--------- We're going for another walk! This time, we're going back in time to Haw Par Villa! A truly unique park in Singapore, it has entertained previous generations and now welcomes tourists. .

We will meet at the main gate at 8am, and there will be a briefing introduction of the place before we walk! Just to know more about the place, what it's all about, and maybe know the people we're walking with! If you're coming, drop a comment!
.
So be there, and be square! See you! //

instasg You've heard of #photowalk, but have you heard of #photopaddle? Mark your calendar!

An interesting initiative by @PUBsingapore and we are excited to be invited. The idea is to learn kayaking, and once you are confident with the paddling, we will try to snap some cool pictures from the water. It's definitely going be a new perspective, not the usual pictures of MacRitchie you've always seen on instagram.

Don't worry about DSLR, quite risky to carry it in the kayak lah! @PUBsingapore will give us waterproof casing for your mobile. It's a gift from them, and let us come back to you once we confirm about whether they have for compact camera as well. Beside the waterproof casing, they said they have some gifts for Instagramers too - and Makan is also provided. You see, kayaking is also a sport and after that surely will get hungry right? There are few other things to be confirmed, including the exact timing and location to meet. But for now, mark your calendar yah? We will update you again in the next few days once everything is confirmed, and that's when we will call you to express your interest. Yes it's for limited number of instagramers - we can say at least 20 for now - of course cannot for all 80+ like in our usual instameet lah! Imagine 80 people bumping each other with the kayak We are excited with this, stay tuned for more details! (Poke your friend here if you want to) -- all pictures are courtesy of @julian_cheong, taken from his feed without his permission as he's (always) on holiday. #jealous

instasg There are many great pictures from the theme "old and new" we had for our last photowalk of 2014. Surely it speaks a lot about friendship over instagram. We are glad, that we really have "social" in social media. Thanks again everyone for the fantastic time!

This particular one is the #instameetsgdec14 from @angrysnatch - that we think translate the theme in a beautiful and elegant way. We would like to give you something that we received from @instagram team. For this, we will contact you via DM soon!

Thanks again, and we can't wait for the next instameet!

instasg We met the young Yang on Sunday's #instameetSGdec14. He seems to be in serious effort to build his instagram profile at the moment and we love it! Sometime a bit nicely dark and sometime it's a nice play of lines. Say hi to @yangsnaps if you haven't got the chance during the photowalk 1mon

instasg It was great to meet Instagramer friends, as we roamed a bit to do what we like: taking pictures with creative people - and closed the day with the fellowship of the food. We have seen great pictures so far, keep them coming on #instameetSGdec14!

Special thanks to @Eileenongxt for yummy chiffon cake - not sure whether it's too yummy or it's so soft, it's gone within seconds!

Also thanks to few people who made newcomers feel welcomed as we had fun in their groups; @kingkhong.ws, @brighterstar39 and @joshieeeeee.

And of course, thank YOU all - 93 instagramers - who made it such a great gathering to close the year with. We look forward to meeting you again in the new year!

Now our tradition to thank you one by one, and you could also check others who you might have missed on the day. Let us know if you were there but not in the list, apologies in advance of we missed anyone - not our intention of course. Hey we can always edit the caption to add you in the list, so let us know soon!

Thanks for the great evening, and here's to fantastic pictures in 2015! ------ @meimeinasi

Few instagramers were caught jaywalking by the security camera in front of Far East Square today, but these are the few good ones that obey the rules. Not sure how long it took the group to get everyone across the street.

Some of us were below 18 today, so we guess that's why this groups chose to have their toast with mobile devices rather than raising the beer cans.

Here's to a great instagram feed in 2015! #communityfirst

"Old and New" is the theme as we are closing the year and welcoming the new year. Remember to tag your pictures from today!

PS. We just got a message that some instagramers are still on their extended photowalk at this hour!

instasg Anyone waiting for #instasgSunday10pm theme for this week? The idea of Sunday 10 PM activity is to encourage interaction between us. So how about this, let's meet and interact directly face to face! We will not have Sunday 10 PM session tonight because we are having instameet today, it's better to meet and chat in instameet rather than the virtual meet right? Later at 10 PM you can spend time browsing the feed people you would just meet today and talk more with them, or simply browse the pictures from today's instameet and get to know the style of your new friends.

This would be our last instameet for the year, that's why we are going to have this theme: "Old and New". We will visit the CBD area where both old shophouses and new skyscrapers co-exist side by side. Both show the dynamism of Singapore's economy and progress - it's used to be a vibrant trading place and it's now home for many global businesses. We will end with dinner at Lau Pa Sat - yes the same place we had food and fun last month! We think it's a nice place to have big gathering for food, beside Lau Pa Sat itself is an icon of Singapore's progress.

So join us as we will spend some time knowing more fellow Singapore instagramers, and close it with a wish for a great year ahead! We will meet at Raffles Place MRT at 5 PM today.

Wear a comfortable footwear for the walk, umbrella might be handy, and feel free to bring any props for your shots. Remember to charge your mobile too See you later!

instasg Hey, join us on Sunday?

This would be our last instameet for the year, that's why we are going to have this theme: "Old and New". Something we did before during our 2nd anniversary walk, we think it's also a good idea to close the year.

Here is the "Old and New" idea, we will visit the CBD area where both old shophouses and new skyscrapers co-exist side by side. Both show the dynamism of Singapore's economy and progress - it's used to be a vibrant trading place and it's now home for many global businesses. We will have a quick roam around Telok Ayer road and move to the parallel world on Cecil Street and Robinson Road. We will end with dinner at Lau Pa Sat - yes the same place we had food and fun last month! We think it's a nice place to have big gathering for food, beside Lau Pa Sat itself is an icon of Singapore's progress; transforming from busy marketplace where your grandma got the vegetable from in the past, to a hip eating place with endless exploration of international food.

So join us as we will spend some time knowing more fellow Singapore instagramers, and close it with a wish for a great year ahead! We will meet at Raffles Place MRT at 5 PM on Sunday.

We have the wet weather plan too, just in case the sky cries a happy tears to see how you guys come together. Wear a comfortable footwear for the walk, umbrella might be handy, and feel free to bring any props for your shots too.

So, who's coming ah?

instasg On December 28th, let's have an instameet for the last time in 2014?

It would be at 5pm, and ideally it's more of a gathering and makan session, well perhaps after a short photowalk. It's to meet other IGers and wish them a great year ahead.

No detailed plan yet, but we will keep it simple. For now, please mark your calendar cos we would love to see you there!

Any suggestion what we should do for the year-end instameet? No promise that we would do it, but hey let's see your creative idea! Perhaps we will end up with an instameet that is planned by all of you together
