Through instruction and examples, learn to take wonderful photos at the zoo without looking like you're at a zoo! Discover catch shots you can make while you're there with others, as well as more serious work you do alone. Topics covered will include a detailed explanation of depth of field and using it to make fences and glass disappear. Make images to be proud of no matter what your photo kit: long lenses, short lenses and everything in between. Shooting subjects will include: large and small mammals, reptiles, birds, flowers and even indoor photography. Learn the best camera settings to use for all situations. Tips on composition will also be included.
Note: A DSLR camera or very advanced point-and-shoot camera will have all the capabilities to apply the instructions given in this course. Those with more basic cameras are more than welcome to attend, but should be aware of limitations in the lessons.
Required: Basic understanding of photographic concepts of exposure, exposure compensation and metering. While there are no planned hands-on exercises in class, please bring your camera and its manual to class.
