Cubbon Park photoshoot is a thing of the past. Please know that you cannot carry a professional camera inside the park. However, you can capture photographs using your smartphone.
Just about four years ago, Cubbon Park was a popular destination for theme-based photography and videography. You could witness pre-wedding and wedding photoshoots, pregnancy photoshoots, and birthday photoshoots on a Sunday morning.
The park also saw students practicing nature photography, especially macro-photography. I have seen students capturing tiny insects and flowers guided by their mentors.
Now, these activities have become a thing of the past. The park gates are closed for commercial photography and professional cameras.
Lucky are those who have their beautiful moments captured at Cubbon Park before the ban. For those who are planning now, they have to try in a different location.
The horticulture department has enforced the ban strictly. It is monitoring for any kind of violation through CCTV cameras and security personnel.
You might be wondering why the Cubbon Park photoshoot was banned? What’s wrong with it?
One complaint was that the professional photographers used cameras with high-intensity flashlights that damaged the bee’s eyes. The distracted insect may have attacked other visitors at the park.
Morning walkers and other visitors to the Cubbon park complained about the disturbance created by photoshoots. It should be noted that several photo shoots were happening simultaneously at various locations of the park.
So is the ban on photoshoots at Cubbon Park.
The visitors can indulge in smartphone photography at Cubbon Park. Smartphone flashlights are of low intensity and do not harm flora and fauna of the park. Additionally, not everybody uses a flashlight on their smartphone.
The latest smartphones are nearly good as professional cameras with regards to clarity and pixel sizes. A good smartphone zoom lens will help capture faraway objects.
Apparently, many professional photographers and videographers objected to the ban but were never successful. The ban is going to be there, and you will have to settle for smartphone photography.
The photoshoot ban is disappointing, but we should understand the restriction is in place to protect flora and fauna of the park. We can’t help but support the decision by the horticulture department.
