Thread: Relax Shoot! - Zoo - 30/01/2010

    Default Relax Shoot! - Zoo - 30/01/2010

    For this edition, I'm going to head back to the zoo and try to get some shots I've been wanting to get but not have had anything nice. Since the zoo doesn't open so early, there will be no 06 30 meetup times. :P

    As usual, all are welcome, but since this is the zoo, please note there are some gear recommendations, else you will be leaving the place somewhat disappointed.

    Sidetrack: Apologies to YSLee for OT.

    For those who need a telephoto lens, can always rent for that day. Several companies/persons rent out not just the lenses, but also bodies.

    HTH.
