There’s nothing more I enjoy than photographing animals, so this Easter I took a trip to Banham Zoo in Norfolk. An enjoyable day out, if a little windy!
Banham Zoo is around 50-acres and is home to over 2,000 animals. Its doors opened to the public in 1968 and has since been awarded the prize of Norfolk’s Top Attraction, by numerous different organisations. It is part of the Zoological Society of East Anglia, a registered charity which also owns Africa Alive! near Lowestoft, Suffolk.
Yesterday was a really enjoyable day, as it was the first time in a long time that I had the opportunity to visit a zoo and photograph some animals…a real passion of mine.
I spent around 5 hours photographing and took close to 1000 images, hence I had a lot of editing to go through. I have selected a few of the images and updated my website. Please feel free to take a look. Looking forward to some more opportunities in the near future.
Tomorrow I am looking forward to travelling back to Cornwall after 6 years. I will be there for the best part of a week and will be using this as an opportunity to capture some new landscape images. Whilst packing, I came across my Nikon F80 Camera and some unused film and decided that I will be taking this along with me as well as my standard Nikon D90 DSLR. It will make a nice change to work with film, as I don’t often get the chance.
I have thought about using mixed media, so once I have the film developed, I will be able to scan it to my computer and make any necessary adjustments. I have also thought about doing montages of some sort. I shall see how it goes and decide what to do as I go along.
Fingers crossed that I capture some worthwhile images. Cornwall is certainly a great place for landscape photography and I’m looking forward to the time away!
