Looking to learn and improve my nature photography hobby I’m part of a local Photography Club that is located at Bass Lake in Holly Springs NC. Today a number of us went to the NC Zoo to work on our nature photography. Given that I spend a significant time following wild animals going to a zoo may seem odd or a bit of a let down. Not really I enjoy it and while there are many subjects I see in the wild there are still many that I will likely never encounter in the wild. Zoos give us a great opportunity to see animals close up and to practice some of our photography techniques.

I’m not going to ramble on but just let some of the photos I took today speak for themselves. If you have the opportunity you should check out our state zoo it’s pretty cool

Nothing like a big toothy grin....cheeessseee

If you live in the area and have an interest in photography come to Bass Lake Park on the 2nd Tuesday of the month and the photo club meets from 7 to 9 pm.
