Photojournalistic Oppurtunity

There will be a mass rally organized by BERSIH, dubbed : "10 Nov BERSIH People's Gathering" which will have sea of people in yellow shirts. This could prove to be a good ground for those interested in photojournalistic pics as this might be the closest thing you can ever get to war photography, here in Malaysia (yeah you might need to run your arse off when the FRU comes crashing down!).

Anyway, just to make things clear. This thread is by no means anything to do with political topic. I'm just posting this info up so that anyone who wanna try their hands on taking photos of a mass rally - which might turn up to be an ugly scene (which of course i hope not!).

For more info, here's the link to this event : 10th November BERSIH People's Gathering

Discuss in here on preparations for photogs who wish to try shooting on this day. I for one am interested

i'm in if there isn't anything on the day

come light dont come with all your gear you will regret big time..Dont bring all those tripod monopod etc...you will regret carrying all those stuff while walking. Even better ditch your photobags, yes its heavy, just bring a simple canvas bag and as light as possible. Prepare to run as well if the demo gets ugly and FRU red dudes starts splashing everyone with pepper laced water.

for those interested, here are some tips:

1. wear sports shoes which you can run comfortably (and fast!) with.
2. bring only little cash, IC and driving license.
3. protect your wallet and mobile phone in a plastic bag.
4. bring along an extra plastic bag for your camera.
5. geared up lightly. just camera and a 18-200mm is best.
6. know your ways around. study some map. know the locations. keep in mind where is the nearest water fountain (good when you kena water canon cuz it irrittates the eyes)
7. let your friends know where you are going.
8. dun ever be alone. make sure got friends around.

thats all for the moment.

Wow, definitely a lot of preparation in case things turn ugly. At the moment there is an article on the paper today mentioning that they require a permit for the event. Until it can be confirmed then I guess we can best prepare for all that you mentioned above

my gut feelings say they will NEVER be able to secure the permit.
