Wildlife Photography Workshop Trip to ZooTampa

In a first of its kind workshop for the Polk Museum of Art, in conjunction with ZooTampa at Lowery Park, I am going to lead a photography workshop to ZooTampa on November 16th from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. The best place to take great wildlife photos is not in the wild, but in your local zoo. Join us for this special opportunity to take closeup photos of wildlife while learning how to get the best results. You will learn how to adjust your camera for various lighting conditions, how to shoot around obstacles such as zoo enclosures/other tourist and how to make your photos look like they were not taken in a zoo.

These are a few photos I took from my last trip to ZooTampa at Lowery Park this summer.

Wildlife Photography

A few weeks ago I decided to buy the Sigma 150-600mm f/5.6-6.3 Art lens as my 50th birthday present to myself. This lens is used for wildlife because you can reach out can get close to the animals without getting disturbing them. These are a few of the photo I recently took at ZooTampa and Lake Morton in Lakeland. More of my wildlife photos are found HERE.
