This all-day workshop is to teach photographers to take memorable wildlife images that don’t look like they were made inside a zoo.  This zoological park is one of the nearest locations 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.    Morning classroom instruction will include how to compose photos in a zoo setting, making the image look like the wild, and understanding how to capture natural animal 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 extension.  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.
