Our trip to the zoo was the trip I had been looking most forward to. I love the zoo. We had the opportunity to go “behind the scenes” and see where the lions are housed and hold rescued baby sea turtles. The trip was probably the most fun of the semester but it was the least successful photographically. It was difficult to get any shots that fit into my portfolio and because we were together as a group we were all getting the same shots. When the class split up, I headed to the monkey house to see the baby gorilla, but all the exhibits were very dark and difficult to shoot.
