A zoo kinda day

Discussion in 'Birds' started by mike mac, Apr 10, 2005.

  1. Was going to do some serious solo shooting today but Lorrie expressed interest in coming out and enjoying the beautiful day so we decided on the zoo. It was a high harsh sun today so here is the first part of our trip a mixed bag of animals and birds

    Dave
     
  4. It is pbase cant link to the orginals. I have added the direct links to the shots, sorry about that
     
  5. Wow Mike! That's another fantastic animal series coming from you. Do you ever have any missed shots, by any chance??? :roll: ;-)

    Btw, if you guys can use a $5 discount when signing up to smugmug, let me know (I get $10 when somebody does, and this paid for my renewal this year!)... :D

    Mike,

    Every time I think that I'm getting to be a pretty good shooter, I see one of your posts and I come back down to reality.... :lol:

    You need to quit your day job and do this full time. They are that good. ;-)

    Regards,

    Frank
     
  7. Mike, I too spent some time wandering around your galleries and if you are not actively trying to sell you images you are missing out of a sure bet. Get a booth at the next street fair and put them puppies up for sale. Simply wonderful images.

    Mike,

    Do what Jim F did; go to some of the local framing shops, the local art society, photo clubs, art galleries, and take a portfolio with some of these shots. I don't see how they can turn them down. :wink:

    Regards,

    Frank
