Zoo Photo Tips

Arrive Early

To make the most of zoo photo ops, go early -- when it's cool, animals are more active. Shannon used her zoom lens to bring the animals closer to her. And for her elephant shot, she saw what direction the elephant was headed and moved toward that edge of the animal enclosure for the best angle.
