Reptile House at Philly Zoo

Discussion in 'Birds' started by mike mac, Dec 11, 2005.

  1. The camera club met this AM at the Reptile house at the Philadelphia Zoo. We had access to the reptile house for a hour before the zoo opened. All shots with the D2X and the Nikon 28-70 2.8 with SB800 connected via SC29 cord to help eliminate glare shooting through the glass

  8. I don't know what I could add that hasn't already been said about this series. Incredible! A question though, surely there was glass between you and the snakes?

    Really excellent exposures, barely a hint of flash used. ok, so who held the flash off to the side for you? Or, did you hold it yourself and shoot? Was it standard iTTL?
     
  12. That third shot is stunning!
     
  13. Outstanding series! Absolutely beautiful!

    Thanks so much, the green snake had such an unreal color to him, and another memebr of the club pointed out the reflection of the third shot I need to start writing down the species as I shoot.

    Thnaks so much I am not sure of the species to be honest I will try contacting the curator of the reptile exhibit to see if he can ID it for me.
