Life evolving behind the lens

The Rite of Spring

As the weather takes its time warming up in Minneapolis, I have been doing a bit of spring cleaning in my photography world. I’m coming to find that even in the winter months there was a great deal of vibrancy in my photos. That’s kind of ironic given my emotional state over being fired and struggling with money for a while. In any case, when I have been taking photos, plants and animals have been my main subjects (although it was mostly animals for a while). Funny how that works.

Blushing Bounty

Let’s be fair. When you’re on a budget like I’ve been these days, you’re going to seek out places that don’t charge much for admission (if they even charge at all). So I decided one day to take a break from job hunting and go to the Como Park Zoo. I figured since I’ve been there before numerous times it would be a good place to take Rigoberto. With it still being cold, damp and gray, my colors were tempered a bit. That’s okay, though. It meant I could practice indoors a little more, something I’ve come to enjoy since getting a DSLR. That being said, I wasn’t completely happy with my results. I rushed a bit to avoid having to pay rush hour fares, which meant I couldn’t spend as much time as I wanted taking pictures. I intend to go back to Como Park with Rigoberto to get more photos to compare my camera handling skills over a period of time. We’ll see how that pans out.
