For one of our recent projects, we had the opportunity to shoot from some really great vantage points overlooking Singapore’s bay area and the ever changing city and financial district skyline.
At Swissotel, we were able to get almost all iconic landmarks such as Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, The Esplanade, Art Science Museum, Marina Bay Financial District, Central Business District (Raffles Place), Fullerton Hotel, Boat Quay, the Floating Platform, Merlion and the Padang in one majestic aerial view shot. A pity we were not able to squeeze in the Singapore Flyer from our point of view but it was made up with the blinding Formula One Street Circuit lighting pulsating! A pity about the hazy and not so ideal weather condition and lighting then.
At Mandarin Oriental on a separate day, we were blessed with not too bad weather (though we did not get the dramatic sunset we want) and good lighting for the last 10 minutes before the sun disappears over the horizon. However, it is such a waste that the exterior of the Art Science Museum was not lit up that day.
Enjoy the view!
