I took this picture in my field trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. That is my best picture from the trip. I really like how he looks to the camera, and he is in the center of the frame. I am really happy with this picture.

I took this picture in my field trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. I am not scary of spiders and in this shot I went very close to the spider. I really like the colors of spider and I think the black background makes your eye drawn into the photo.
I took this picture in my field trip to the Woodland Park Zoo. There are couple thing I like about this picture. First of all, the blue eye of the bird gives the picture nice effect. Secondly, the dark background matches the bird. Lastly, I think the picture is nice in focus and sharp.
When we went to the zoo, these monkeys were really hard to get pictures of because they run so fast. I had to keep snapping pictures in order just to get one good one. This one was my favorite though. I like how it looks when he is jumping off the tree. To me, it looks like front row seats. I would try and focus the monkey more next time.

I thought that these ducks at the zoo were pretty cute. Every time one would go somewhere, so would the other. They were like an old married couple that couldn’t go without one another. If I were to change something it would be the lighting. When I took the picture it was kind of dark so I went into Photoshop and changed a little bit of the coloring.

I love turtles. That is why this picture and the exhibit that I say was one of my favorites. I have only seen green shelled turtles. This is the 1st time that I have ever seen light brown shelled turtles. I thought that they were really pretty. If I were to take pictures of turtles again I would try to get more detail in my picture and focus the camera more.
I also took this picture at Wildwood Zoo and all the gorillas were sleeping except for the mom and she was sitting up sticking her tongue out at everyone that was looking at her. Then she decided that she wanted to lie down and then she woke up her daughter and they started to play Simon says. That is why I named this picture Mommy says. I would probably focus more on the actions next time.

I took this picture when we were at the Wildwood Zoo in Seattle. There were a lot of water places and I really liked the scene and the setting so I ended up taking a few pictures and it turned out that I really liked them. The only thing that I would probably change would be the lighting and the color.
I was walking around a park when I took this picture. The sun decided to jump out for no particular reason which surprised me. I took some shots with the macro lens and this one stuck out to me. I altered the color intensity and the contrast just to see the outcome. I like the brightness in this photo but I think I like the colors a little more muted.
In this photograph I was experimenting with the 60 mm macro lens. I like the lighting, particularly the way the sun shadows the log in the picture. This makes the contrast in the colors much more dramatic. I didn’t alter the picture except for cropping it a little.
This is yet another photo from the zoo. On the day we went, my group and I experienced some difficulty. The animals were perpetually too far away or sleeping with their rear ends towards the camera. One moment I turned around and there was this spider chilling on this plant. I took advantage of the macro lens I had at took some shots. I’m disappointed with the depth of field and focus in this picture, but I really like the positioning of the spider and the color contrast.
This is another picture from the Zoo excursion that my class went on last week. I like this picture, but at the same time it makes me really sad. Primates have incredibly expressive faces and I really wanted to capture that, but it seems that the only emotion that I could ever grasp was one of sadness or remorse.
This picture is one from my photography class’s adventure to the Woodland Park Zoo. My anonymous classmate is making an excited face atop the statue of a Komodo Dragon. I realize that the resolution in this picture isn’t the best quality, but I just really like my friends expression. If I were to redo it, I would attempt better focus.

I took this at a performance that Carlos Andres Gomez put on at UW Tacoma. He’s a slam poet so what he does requires passion and I think I captured that in this picture. I used the manual setting on the camera and changed the shutter speed to 60. It was extremely hard to get to this point because the lighting was so dim. I love this picture.

Obviously this is another photo from the zoo. This is one that I am pretty darn proud of because I went into Photoshop and did a lot of editing, and it turned out good in my opinion. I’d tell you what editing I did , but I don’t want to ruin you opinion of the photo.

I thought it was fun being at the zoo and taking pictures of animals that I can find in my backyard. Plus I saw this duck in the pond in the lion’s area. I didn’t do any editing and I’m excited with how it turned out. My setting for the camera was on close-up and that helped me to capture the water drops on his head.

This is my cute little kitten Cosmo… except he’s not so tiny like most kittens should be. He’s always getting into everything and has this cute look in his eyes when he sees something to play with. In this case it was my camera. If I had to change something then I would try to center his head more in the frame.

Here is another one taken at the zoo. I was really far from the lions, but used a lens that gave me a closer look. I went into Photoshop and did some editing to make the picture look better. I really like how this one turned out.

I took this photo at the Woodland Park Zoo. The gorillas were so much to take pictures of, especially this one. She kept sticking out her tongue and making funny facial expressions. The hard part was capturing the picture because of the glass that separated us from her and the others.

A few weeks ago my family and I re-visited the graves of our uncles and cousin. When we got to the cemetery I noticed how beautiful the leaves were and the colors of fall. I like how this photo turned out and how I was able to capture the sunlight and different colors. If I were to do it again, then I might play around with the different light setting on my camera.
This was the cutest little girl at the zoo that was so intrigued in all the animals we were around, I felt really weird taking this picture because I didn’t know the little girl but I was still really happy with the picture because of her reflection in the window.

This is a picture of a leopard at the woodland park zoo. I really like this picture he just started moving from his spot on the log. I like the way I captured the look he had it just seem like he was focused on something and wasn’t going to let anything stop him. Next time I would have tried to get rid of the glare from the window but that’s about it.

I took this picture at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. I like this picture because of the way I caught it while it was moving. I didn’t really do much I cropped it a little, and played with the contrast to make the colors of the leopard stand out more.

This picture is of an orangutan. He was the oldest and largest of them at the zoo. This shot just shows him munching on some snacks. Although it looks like he is trying to express himself. There’s really not much I would change about it other then try and get the branches out of the shot although they kind of frame his face.
Here is a shot of a little bird munching on some wood in it’s are. In this shot I like the vibrant colors of the bird it stands out against the brown back ground. I’m not really sure what I would do differently in this shot I like it how it is.
Here’s a picture of my adorable golden retriever. This was taken at about midnight, and all she wanted to do was sleep. I felt bad because I had the camera in her face for a good ten minutes, but at this point, she is used to me taking pictures of her. I didn’t use the flash purposely because it didn’t look as good in my opinion (plus that would have been a little mean L )
If you’re like me, you love Halloween because of the yummy pumpkin seeds! I took this picture as they came fresh out of the oven. What’s better is they are still in the foiled pan and that added a cool look to it. I didn’t change this picture at all because I didn’t have any good ideas of what to do to it.
I’m not really sure what kind of bird this is. And I’m not really sure when I took this picture but I like how the bird is looking at you like what are you doing. And if I were to it differently I would have taken out the little side branch cause it kind of takes you attention.
This picture is of an artic fox. He is enjoying his nap. But in this photo I like the way he takes up the whole shot and it makes you focus on him and nothing else. I also like the way he seems so peaceful. It I were to take a different shot of this fox I would have tried to create a little more contrast.

When I took this picture I was on my way to school and I was on a really empty road and I saw this and stopped my car in the middle of the road and took about 25 frames, this one came out really good and showed everything I wanted to show.
