Lisa's Trip To Southwick Zoo

Lisa and myself have had quite a bit of experience photographing in zoos, and have visited some of the top zoos and animal parks in the world. A few days ago, Lisa and her friends went to Southwick Zoo in Massachusetts. Lisa managed to get some fantastic shots, typically placing the animal in a natural frame with very little, if anything, to suggest an enclosure. She demonstrates that the best way to photograph an animal in captivity is to carefully and judiciously frame the animal so as to place it in as natural a setting as possible.Lisa managed to capture not only the entire animal in its environment, but some stunning close-ups too. Sometimes, getting in close also makes a powerful image.I have edited a few of her shots in Aperture and presented them here.

See how she has framed him? This could easily have been a wild deer in the woods somewhere.
