This all-day workshop is to teach photographers how to create memorable wildlife images that don’t look like they were made inside a zoo.  The Detroit Zoological Park is the nearest location to find tigers, lions and other exotic creatures in North America. The Detroit Zoological Park is located in Royal Oak, Michigan, just north of Detroit.   The Morning classroom instruction will include how to compose photos in a zoo setting, making the image simulate the wild, and provide understanding how to capture animals natural behavior.  Students will also learn proper telephoto lenses techniques to make tack sharp photographs as well as the appropriate use of tele-converters and Fresnels for flash photography.  After lunch, we will drive to the zoo, where Bryce will assist students with the principles of composition and how to capture the animals at their best.  Bring your telephoto lens, tripod and cable release!  We will meet at the MPW Farmington Hills Campus at 10:00AM.
