Zoo Photo Tips


Avoid Glare

When you're photographing such subjects as this flashy parrot, avoid bouncing your flash off the glass and washing out your shot. Use available light, shoot at an angle, or use a rubber lens hood, which will let you put your lens right next to the glass and shield that portion from the flash.
