The other day I took a client to the San Francisco Zoo to practice photographing animals. My client has an upcoming trip to Africa and will be taking a photo safari. Since it is a once in a life time event for him he was looking for tips on how to be the most effective he could be.
I covered the various concepts and techniques with him and we had a great time. To name just a few….
- Fill the frame
- Focus on the eyes
- Concentrate on particular attributes of the animal
- Use a fast shutter speed (high ISO if needed to increase shutter speed)
In addition to his practicing, I was able to squeak out a few of my own images that you see here. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do every time I’m at the zoo.
If you’d like to join me for a few hours and pick up some tips visit my website under the “Workshops” tab. The tabs are on the right of this screen.
Join me! I go to the San Francisco Zoo most Wednesdays where I hold a Free Camera Walk!!!!!
