Horizon 202

Been playing with a Russian Horizon 202 lately… I really like how it distorts straight things making them look curved 🙂

Zoo Poo

At the Giraffe talk at the Zoo… Apparently the smell of the stored poo was a bit much for some…

Lookout

Been super busy of late developing film and putting together a time lapse of a shoot I was assisting at from the weekend (my computer really doesn’t like video). Here is a shot from my Zoo visit during the school holidays…

Lions At The Zoo. Who’s Watching Who…

With the school holidays on we took the girls to the zoo. I love going to the zoo but mostly for the people 🙂

While the girls were at the chimpanzee talk I went and checked out the lion enclosure. This was the first time I had seen the lions up close to the viewing window, wow they are big!

Zoo Half Frame

I love how seamless this shot is even though the two girls are in it twice… Look at it big 🙂

Zoo People Watching

People usually go to the Zoo to look at the animals… I go to look at the people 🙂

Giraffe Sequence

Was talking to someone the other day about taking images of giraffes and he was complaining about not being able to get a close shot even though he was using a 300mm lens… So I was at the zoo the other day and after I shot a couple of shots on the Rollei (which I still have to develop) I threw a 50mm lens onto the D70s to see what I could get…

Lets just say I got a bit of a surprise when he came up and tried to eat my camera strap 🙂

I had to stop shooting because he came too close and was closer than the minimum focusing range of the lens…
