PHOTOWALK: Emerald Hill

2h over 1 session

Course Description
Nestled right in the heart of Orchard Road, like a colourful gem amidst glass-and-concrete high-rise malls, is the neighbourhood of Emerald Hill. The former nutmeg and fruit orchard is now a graceful street of heritage houses in various hues, home to both residents and restaurants and bars. 

The architectural details of Emerald Hill are a feast for the eyes, from Peranakan tiles, to timber window screens and doors, to porcelain roof decorations, as are the natural elements, from the abundant greenery to the delicate play of light and shadow along the alleys.

Soak in the atmosphere of this elegant and exclusive neighbourhood while learning about street photography, architecture photography, simple portraiture, and shooting during the beautiful evening “golden hour” and sunset. Participants are to bring their own cameras they are comfortable with; smartphones are suitable too.
