My first try at photography

Try not to flame me to hard. We went to the zoo today and I tried to take some good pictures. Some of the pictures are far because I was far away from the animal. This is also my fist time I tried to get decent photos. The camera I was using was a Kodak Easy Share ls743.

Don't center your subject unless they are going to fill the frame much more.

Shoot at eyelevel with animals, and make sure the eyes are in focus.

Shooting in harsh mid-day light is a bit of a no-no, you'll have better dynamic range on an overcast day.

How can you put time and thought into shooting animals? They can do anything at any moment. Ya you can get a good angle and you can wait we had a limited amount of time.

Anything can happen anywhere at any time, not just with ****ing animals you ignorant ****. Quit making excuses for your ****ty photos.

I give plenty of advice to people that aren't gods of the photography world. Ask some of the people who have been here longer than you. You ****ing jerkoff.
