There is something unequivocally mysterious, challenging and awesome about the outdoors. The sun, sky, animals and even the obstructed vast land seem like an open challenge by nature for man to capture its beauty.
It’s a challenge that can never be won because no matter how skilled a photographer may be, the beauty of nature doesn’t lie in its colors or lights. It lies in something deeper.
However, it shouldn’t stop man from trying. The outdoors is so beautiful that capturing an ounce of its beauty already offers a lifetime of satisfaction. Perhaps, that’s what makes photography so addicting. It is the profession that comes closest to ever freezing the perpetually changing beauty of nature.
The 24th Annual Photo Day at the Los Angeles Zoo is one of the few activities that specifically devotes itself to outdoor and wildlife photography. On Sunday, November 3, 2013, new, intermediate and expert photographers will have a chance to do a hand-on workshop on outdoor photography. From 7:30 am to 4 pm, representatives of different DSLR manufacturers will be assisting new photographers in learning some basic photography principles.
Participants may also borrow camera equipment.
Included in the $175 participation fee are one-on-one time with manufacturers' representatives, catered lunch, guest speakers, t-shirt, early admission to the Zoo, animal close-ups for photography, and a photo contest with prizes.
