Today, my blog has been officially 'promoted' by robin
When I read his latest post, my eyes grew as big as saucers :p when I saw what he had posted:
"Why Zoo Negara? Blame all of it on that Brandon (click)!! He poisoned me several times with the pictures he took at the Zoo in Melbourne, so
in the spirit of kiasu-ism he got me so inspired to try out shooting at the zoo. Yes Goodness, Brandon, see what you have done to me."
It is indeed a coincidence that I too had visited the a zoo during the weekend - The Werribbee zoo.
I previously first visited the zoo in january this year, post here. This time, I've returned with my olympus e510.
If used properly, the Zuiko 50-200 can be used as a 'macro' lens to take subjects with exquisite details. Most of the photos are taken at wide open apertures, single autofocus, multi autofocus points and iso400.
btw, the snickers catch line is - so close u can taste it!
one successful trait of the zoo is its safari experience. simply put, a bus drives you on dirt tracks so that you can view the animals from a safe distance without having to walk for miles.
"the most important rule for photographing animals in fauna parks and zoos when the day is bright and sunny is 'don't bother'. a bright overcast day is essential to enable you to take intimate shots of furry and feathered creatures with lots of detail."
sigh, what a sleepy day.... zzzz!
