The Zoo Challenge

Over the summer I went to a local zoo for a change of subject and to maybe find something a bit more challenging to shot. Immediately it was challenging due to the low light in the enclosures, however I found very quickly that I was taking photos with a lot of the enclosure showing and distracting from the subject animal. So I decided to attempt to capture the animals in a more natural way and so taking the zoo out of the zoo.
