Took my trusty Canon 7D and used the Canon 70-200 IS L II to Edinburgh zoo. Used the Canon x1.4 and x2 extender to give me a bit more reach at times.
I wanted to do something different from the normal animal photos, get a but closer to things rather than show the whole animal. Hope you like it and it makes up for me not posting up photos for a while.
The light wasn’t the best plus the reflection on the glass windows caused problems at times. A few things I learnt was I need to increase the shutter speed, 200ms was to low for moving animals and at times people wearing white reflected on windows and best to wait till they move on before continuing.
A few samples of the primates photos taken.
This photo is probably the one I like the most of all the photos taken. The shadows and the look in the eyes.
It’s all in the eyes as they say.
