Then this tour held at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo is for you 🙂
Come and photograph the animals and enjoy the stunning harbour views Taronga Zoo has to offer 🙂 You will learn all about ‘continuous focusing’ and how to photograph animals in the best light. We will also explore the use of a polarizing filter. I will show you how easy it is to remove glare, deepen the ‘blue’ in the sky and saturate the colours in your photographs.

You will be given personal, easy to understand photography tuition and information relevant to YOUR camera (yes, I study the workings of YOUR camera before the tour.)

*circular polarizing filter – this filter is used to cut out the glare in a scene – whether it be on the leaf of a plant or a lake in the midday sun. It also saturates the colours in your scene and will deepen a blue sky.
A circular polarizing filter screws onto the front of your lens and is adjustable.
Before purchasing a circular polarizing filter, you need to determine the filter size (in mm.) You will find the measurement of either the front rim or the side of your lens barrel. Standard sizes range from 27mm to 86mm.
These filters vary greatly in price from $40 to approx $110 (depending on your thread size) and can be purchased from any good camera store or ebay.
