Chinese Wayang at Eunos









There was a huge tentage set up next to Eunos MRT station to celebrate the birthday of the nine Empror gods. Next to the tentage was a wayang stage. My assistant Betty and I went into the backstage of the wayang to take some candid photographs. The Wayang people were very friendly. I took these images on my new Canon 5D with a 24-70mm f2.8 lens. I was shooting at iso 800 and I think that the results are really nice.

Hi Verucaz,

Unfortunately, the Chinese Opera troupes are slowly closing down. There are plenty of photographs trying their best to capture what they can though and the Opera troupe people are quite welcoming.
