Not all of us have the time or the budget to go on a Safari to Africa or to bird watching in Costa Rica. The good news is we live in an area that gives us many opportunities for great pictures of animals in the wild. Well, at least animals that look like they are in the wild. Local zoos allow us to shoot great images that our friends will think were shot in the wild.
We will cover all the basics of photographing animals, including what equipment, camera settings, exposure, and auto focus techniques you should use. From there you will learn how to give your images impact using composition and controlling depth of field. There are unique challenges faced by zoo photographers. The barriers keep us safe can also inhibit dramatic images. Fences and glass can be conquered with the right techniques. You will also learn how to control reflections and harsh shadows using in-camera and post-processing techniques. We will finish with a discussion on how to plan a day at the zoo with photography in mind and where to get the best images.
Join us to learn the techniques to get images that will have your friends asking, “When did you go on Safari?” Plus, all these techniques can be applied if you do go on safari or are just photographing seagulls at the beach.
