San Diego Zoo

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 17/09/2010

I was lucky enough to head to the San Diego zoo the other day. I had heard good things about it from friends who had previously visited it and it didn’t disappoint. The place was huge!

I took lots of photos on the day but the combination of my 75-300mm lens and the low light conditions resulted in a lot of blurry photo. Oh well, I guess you live and you learn. Here are the shots that made the cut.

    nice shots, at full extension you need about 1/500 sec shutter speed to be sure not to blur. Maybe one step down from there is fine but in low light getting that shutter speed is hard. I had similar issues taking shots in the Vancouver Aquarium and just gave up.

    These are great shots! So much personality. I have the same trouble with my 300mm lens when I shoot in low light. Sometimes I use a mono pod to help with camera blur. It doesn’t stop the animals from moving, however. LOL!

    Thanks Melaniedean! I was thinking of investing in a mono pod. Until then I will just have to continue to ask them to stand still for me! haha
