Trip to the Zoo

This weekend we trudged off in the snow and cold to the local zoo so I could try some techniques for capturing animals in captivity. I was trying to get shots of the animals by focusing past the screen in front of them. In some cases I was able to pull it off and in others you can see the screen if you look at the weird shadows and points of light cast on them. Either way I was really lucky to get the animals doing something other than sleeping or pacing wildly, which has always been the norm when I head over to Zollman Zoo.

There are a couple more photos on Flickr, but these give you a good idea of what I accomplished. Noticeably missing – pictures of Gretchen and the kids! I did get one of Oskar… Doh! Next time…
