Master Zoo Photography
Through instruction and examples, this course will teach students to take wonderful photos at the zoo without it looking like you're at a zoo! It will cover catch shots you can make while you're there with others, as well as more serious work you do alone. Topics covered will include an in-depth explanation of depth of field and using it to make fences and glass disappear. We'll cover making images to be proud of no matter what your photo kit, long lenses, short lenses, and everything in between. A wide variety of subjects will be covered: large and small mammals, reptiles, birds, flower and even indoor photography. Learn the best camera settings to use for all situations encountered. Tips on composition will be included too.
Please Note: A DSLR camera or very advanced point & 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 is no planned hands-on exercises in class, please bring your camera and its manual to class.
