More photography course fun! This last weekend we headed out to the zoo to practice taking pictures of wildlife. It was good – lots of tips and stories from both our instructors. I initially froze in the morning despite having about ten layers of clothing on. I later realized that I could have worn my wool hiking socks instead of the thin socks I was wearing and my feet would have been much warmer. Then, of course, when we entered the tropical conservatory, it was a 40C temperature change plus humidity and I pretty much melted. Apparently camera lenses don’t enjoy the sharp temperature change either – I had to wipe the lens off before I took every picture for the first ten minutes. I didn’t have a lens cloth, so I used my t-shirt. Some of my classmates scolded me, so needless to say I went out and got one for myself!
Although our trip was fun, we had an ulterior motive for being at the zoo: we had to take photos for our next assignment. This time we have three categories: Mammal, Humour and Colour. (For those from the States, check out the “u” action in the Canadian spelling of the later two words.)
As per usual, I have chosen my favourite photos from these three categories, but I would like your help in choosing which photos I will submit in my assignment! I have created a poll for each category – there’s lots of pictures, but hopefully it’s worth it. If you have any constructive criticism of my photos, I would love to hear it – it’s good for me to learn about ways that I can improve my photography!
Again, thank you so much for your help in choosing photos! :)
What do you enjoy the most about going to the zoo?
