This is a discussion on First attempt at animals within the Animals and Birds forums, part of the PHOTO GALLERIES category; We took our little daughter to the zoo today for the first time, so I tried shooting animals for the first time - with some ...
Nicely done. I really like 3,4 and 5.
Not bad, not bad at all. I have never had any luck at zoos, don't know why.
I really like #4 the expression on the birds face is cool.
You're getting the hang of it Nosferatu.
This is a nice beginning series. Exposure are good and the subjects are interesting. A zoo environment is an ideal location to practice the rules of composition and patience. These initial pictures all seem to have the subject centered. You might consider spending session deliberately working on the rule of thirds to gain some experience and make it a little more second nature.
HERE'S an article I wrote that should help get you started.
Good luck and practice, practice, practice.
