I haven’t been to too many zoos and aquariums since I took up photography. From a photographer’s standpoint, it brings wildlife from around the world within arm’s reach without having to travel. I also don’t have to invest in large, expensive telephoto lenses that wildlife photographers often have to do to shoot animals in their natural habitat. Instead, I can make due with a 50 mm or a standard zoom.
The Franklin Park Zoo is the major zoo in Boston and I’ve been eager to check it out for quite a while. I didn’t have high expectations for it, but I think it was still worth the trip to explore for a few hours.
After a day at the zoo, I took closer to 200 photos with a few different species. But I’m now in more of a habit to take more quality photos instead of a lot of photos. Maybe it’s because I’m getting lazy. Or maybe it’s because I’m spending a lot more time editing each photo.
Quality over Quantity
