The Zoo, in photos
Rather than post another blog about the zoo, I am posting one about the photos I take at the zoo. Normally the photos I take are darker, high in tone, and saturation. This time I tried something different : I tried to take lighter softer photos and I was happy with the results. I really want to try again. This time I also played around with ISO, which was fun to see the differences. Here are some of the photots…
I really like the contrast and detail in this photo.
I did use this one for scavenger hunt Sunday but I really like it so I am sharing it again. I took this one with a lighter exposure then used a cross processing finish. I know it is overexposed but I kind of like it. It gives me a fairytale-ish feeling
Again here I tried lighter settings, which I really liked. I was able to get rid of shaddows by shooting at lower settings and then bring the colors back in editing.
I had a lot of fun photographing this snake, he was playing under a shower type thing. This was one of my explorations in ISO. In the reptile house it is very dark, auto ISO wasn’t cutting it so I played around with it, 620 got me this shot.
This one was originally in color and lighter, yet I reverted to the style I like and make It a bit darker. I really like the composition of this shot
This is my favorite animal right here. It’s a okapi and she is hiding 🙂 I really really love okapis and really really hate when people make fun of them at the zoo. You should hear some of the things!
Love these buds, the colors are so vibrant.
Here is this little guy, isn’t he a cutie! I took a lot more black and white shots this time, it is nice taking a different style.
So there are my photos… There are more because we went to a beach for a picnic and to watch the sun set after, but the sunset was pretty disappointing 😦 So I am not going to post them. It was a great Friday and I can’t wait until next Friday. Greg and I are going to the mummy exhibit at the California Science Center 🙂 so excited!
Anyway there is my day in photos !
If you would like to know we went to the San Diego Zoo–which happens to be one of my favorite places on earth! They really are a great organization feel free to check them out here : Sandiegozoo.org
