Charice was set to perform at the first day of the 2011 Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix. After exhausting all my efforts capturing the cars in motion, I headed down to the Padang Stage where the Filipina prodigy & Glee star sensation was set to unleash her vocal prowess. As I arrived, I was stuck right beside the control booth at about 100 meters away from the stage. Beyond that was a controlled fence which only allows ticket holders with privilege wrist bands. How did they get that? I have no idea. As I was miles away from the stage, I didnt have a choice but to use my Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR. The longest prime I had was the Nikon 135mm f2 DC & it didnt have enough reach to capture the tiny performer.

The stage below was captured at 70mm while the rest of the photos were at full 300mm plus cropped at 70 – 80%. I shot at Manual running my shutterspeed from 1/80 – 1/125 depending on the lighting conditions. I left my aperture wide open & set my metering to spot while my ISO was set to auto at 6400 maximum.


  1. very nice shots ian even your location was far from the stage. We were inside the fan zone (that’s what they call the area nearer to the stage) the wristband was given earlier on before the concert starts, first come first serve yung wrist band. 🙂
