2017-03-26 Zoo

I went to the zoo with some friends from work and I took some pictures. There is going to be a little “contest” for the catogries sweet, wild, strange, hidden and climate change.

I used my M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75‑300mm 1:4.8‑6.7 II lens and noticed that many of my pictures weren’t sharp so next time I’ll have to think about stabilising the camera. I also noticed that some of the pictures felt overexposed, like the older elephant face, and I don’t know what to do about that. Any ideas?



Wow. These pictures are amazing.

I find that I get better exposure with my M4/3 cameras by using Program Mode and stopping down by -0.3. I also modified the contrast curve to be a bit sublinear.

I really should delve into the details of the camera one of these days. Sometimes, the colours are glorious. At other times, flat. :)
