Safari at the ZOO is back!

This is the meet up event that started it all!

Quick sign up price $45, before April 1

Not so quick price $50, after Arpril 1

At the door $55

In this meet up I will cover the concept of making your zoo photographs look as though they where not taken in a zoo but on safari. Discussions will consist of- lens selection use of aperture and selective focus composition tools using filter. Using a flash and shooting through glass. And as always I'm open to any question that will help the members become a better photographer Start time: 10:00 AM and finish 2:00.

Recommended equipment.

Your camera kit

Tri pod or mono pod

A zoom lens, if you have a  70 to 200/300 works great.

Plenty of batter and memory cards

The fee for my teaching does not include admission to the zoo.

I will only be teaching and I will not be bringing my camera.That way I can concentrate on the teaching and not be distracted by taking my own photos.

Rain Date: April 19.

    Mike's class was great. He wasn't taking photos and was only there as an instructor. It was a really great day and every one in the group was nice

    Mike's classes are always spot on. He's always very willing to shares his knowledge. His classes are always fun & very informative! Looking forward to the next one!

    Looking forward to my first meet up. I am a former Philly zookeeper too so any questions you have I would be glad to answer. I might even get us a tour behind the scenes if you're interested in the African Plains.

    I'm hoping it rains on the 12th as I already have a commitment that day, but I probably can attend on April 19th.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
