When: Saturday, July 26th from 10am-2pm
Where: Smithsonian National Zoo, 3001 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC
Join us on Saturday, July 26th for a National Zoo photo walk. We will be meeting at the west entrance located on Connecticut Ave. at 11am (look for Andy in the Leica T-shirt). The Zoo is metro accessible from either the Cleveland Park or Woodley Park Metro Stations.
Unfortunately, we cannot capture the true essence of these magnificent animals outside of their natural habitat. However, today’s Zoo's do play a crucial role in species conservation and also in educating the future generation on how to preserve our planet’s natural spaces.
For this excursion, I recommend bringing the following with you in your kit: A long focal length lens, 75mm+ (don’t worry if you don’t have one, sincethere are plenty of photo opportunities for wider lenses too), a tripod or monopod, an extra battery, plenty of water.
