Behind The Lens

This was taken at the St. Louis Zoo
A beautiful sunny day
The lighting was kinda harsh that day. It was about noon and no clouds.
I used a Canon EOS Rebel XTi with a 75/300 mm lens. I used a ISO of 400 with a Aperture of f/5.6 at 1/60s
Me and the wife and her grand kids was visiting St. Louis Zoo. When we came upon the great apes.He was sitting there starring at people. It was like he was caught doing something wrong. So I zoom in tight on his face and took this. When I down loaded it on my computer. This is one shot that to me has two different feels to it. When it is in B/W It looks like a mug shot. But when it is in color. It makes me wonder what he was thinking at the time I was taking this shot. Is it that" I did something wrong and I was put in jail". OR is it "why did you take me from my great home and friends and family and put me in a zoo". After all we took him from his home and put him in a cadge where everybody is starring at him.
The only thing I did with this shot was to go from color to B/W. This one did not need that much work
In my camera bag
In my bag I have my Canon EOS Rebel XTi and my new Canon T3i. You don't really need a bad expensive camera to take really great photos. There is a 75/300 mm lens and 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 Lens in my bag.
The world around us is a photograph. We just take moments out with are camera. Some of my favorite photos was at the spur of the moment. You don't need to go to school to get great photos like this. You just need to shoot what feel right. To me Photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in the ordinary place. If you see something that moves you, and then snap it, you keep the moment. My rule of thumb is if you take 1000 shots and get 5 great shots or more you scored.
