As for perspective. I knew that perspective mattered. I didn't really learn that but I learned to think of it in a new way. We have a great butterfly house at our zoo. I love to try to get pictures of the butterflies with their wings open. Doesn't everyone? That's the point. Try to get a different perspective that not everyone is getting!
Another thing we talked about in class is making the animals look like they are not in the zoo. Make them look natural. This is not a new concept to me but was a lot easier to think about without the kids. I could move to different positions to get the shot I wanted.
|Good looking cat. Bad looking door.|
|Same cat. Different angle. Much better but not perfect.|
|Same cat. Zoomed in close. Lose the background. Love it.|
And finally just some adorable lion cub pictures. This one was really loving all of the attention. Thanks for stopping and I hope you'll play with perspective the next time you go out with your camera.
