C15 0260 Edit.thumbnail Zoo Photography from Los AngelesWell, I’m back from sunny California and for a first trip down there, I have to say that I had a blast! The weather was perfect for the 7 days I was there and my friend Kerri was the best hostess and guide.

I visited Huntington Beach, Santa Monica, San Diego and, of course the L.A. zoo and aquarium. I did find out after that the San Diego zoo was much better but I didn’t have the time to squeeze it in since I spent a whole day hunting and capturing my very new Nikon D300s! icon smile Zoo Photography from Los Angeles I got one of the first 3 in California! Woohoo! But I digress….

I thought I would share with you some of my favorite shots since I recently posted a tutorial on taking perfect zoo photos.

I would also like to point out that I used the Lightroom split toning effect that I showed you on those gorilla headshots. What a poser! I also used the high pass filter in Photoshop for sharpening the web images to  get as much detail as possible. The rest was basic post processing adjustments.

    Glad you came to So Cal. I know your a busy man but if in the future could you explain how to shoot those jellyfish and the processing. I always go to the Aquarium of The Pacific with high hopes and always come back dissapointed.
