The Zoo: Abstracted

As so often we do, a group of photographer friends planned an outing. The days were getting warmer and school was not out yet so the group decided to head to the zoo.

Sounds like a great location for photo opportunities, right? Who doesn’t enjoy photographing the beautiful animals in their well-kept and lush surroundings.

The added challenge, however, was to only photograph abstract images!

I chose to spend the day exploring movement.  More specifically, I chose to use long exposures, thus allowing the movement of the animals to blur into abstraction.

It truly was a great outing with friends.  I enjoyed the day as well as the photographic rewards of the day.

      Thank you, Margaret. I enjoyed our time together as well. By the way…I spotted one lone eagle on the Mississippi. Thought they were all gone. He posed for me for a bit. I’m anxious to see if my photos turned out! ~ Sue

      Thank you, Susan. Movement is one of my favorite subjects/techniques. Sometimes the subject moves, sometimes the camera moves, and sometimes I move; each creating a unique and artistic effect. ~Sue
