Zoo Safari!

Yesterday I went on a zoo safari! It was an extension of a photo workshop that I took back in May. The same two instructors/photographers were there to guide us, and help us learn. A LOT. The best part, was that there were only 15 of us, total! 

It was basically a one-on-one with these two incredibly gifted, talented, and amazingly nice, professional photographers! Check them out. I promise their work won't disappoint you! There is Stephanie Adriana - she does fine art photography {which is what I am leaning towards. I haven't told that to anybody!}. And there is Val Westover - he does mainly portraiture and events. 
Their work is so inspiring to me...

So about the Safari...we met up at Woodland Park Zoo, and took off! We did extensive hands-on training with exposure, composition, and metering. I, like everyone else there, know all about these. But everything we were taught took our photos to the next level! I am so, SO pleased with the classes I have taken from these two! The photos you are about to see from the safari are all SOOC. Not one photo was touched by editing software {except the watermark}! And for that, I can honestly say that I impressed myself yesterday! If you know me well, you know that that never happens! Never. I was able to capture some serious good shots yesterday, and I couldn't possibly post them all! So take a look at these few, and let me know what you think {because I am a curious cat}!

So there you have it! My SOOC Zoo Safari!


  1. Fun photos, like the lion shots.

  2. I am so proud of you! These are so beautiful! Your work looks better than those people that spend hours editing their photos! I love the natural pictures!!! Great work, and you know I love the flamingo!
