The i light festival is back at Marina Bay Singapore! This bright, colourful, interesting and unique light artwork displays festival is back for their 4th edition in Singapore, starting on 4th March 2016 to 27th March 2016.

Thereafter, I continued towards the Promontory @ Marina Bay before ending my adventure outside Fullerton Bay Hotel. It was a bit of a fast walk for me, to document, cover and photograph all 25 light artwork installations at i Light Marina Bay 2016 within a night from around 8pm to 11pm. However, I am still planning to go back and revisit some of the light artwork installations again, especially those that I want to photograph more in-depth, from a few different perspectives and angles.

i Light Marina Bay 2012 is Here !

2 years ago, from 15 October to 7 November in 2010, I witnessed the launch of the FIRST i Light Marina Bay art light event, Asia’s first and only sustainable light art festival and I was very impressed with the theme, lightings, installations and artwork. Today, i Light Marina Bay is now back at Marina Bay again from 9th March to 1st April 2012 at the Marina Bay Waterfront, with many new, great and talented artists to showcase a new era of lightings, artwork and installations !

The theme is “Light Meets Asia”, featuring 31 innovative and environmentally sustainable light art installations, with a strong focus on works from Asia, the installations use energy-efficient lighting, creating awareness for energy-saving lighting technology for the urban environment. There are 31 different artists, all very talented and inspirational, with their installations and artwork across the entire Marina Bay Waterfront, do check out all the 31 artists here!

Here’s some photography tips for shooting i Light Marina Bay !

– Wear comfortable clothing and shoes (it can be quite a bit of a fun walk)

– Stay hydrated and remember your water bottle

– Bring your tripod (for long exposure shots and low light shoot)

– Camera Remote Control (for long exposure shots and to avoid camera shake when pressing on your camera)

– Use the map and plan your shoot (don’t rush to cover all in one night!)

– Spread it over a few nights

– Shoot on the weekdays (avoid the crowds on the weekends)

– Use wide angle zoom and telephoto zoom (they will give a fresh and different perspective and composition)

– Explore different angles and locations to shoot each installation

I started my i Light Marina Bay light art festival 2012 photography walk on Saturday, 10th March, with the Marina Bay  Photo AmBAYassadors and we had a great time there with photography workshop, outing and outdoor light painting session!
