Family trip to Ebisu circuit and zoo
Took the fam today to Ebisu to see some drifting and animals at the zoo there. We were blessed with good weather so wanted to practice shooting some of the animals and maybe some cars. But being still winter and pretty damn cold there was no one there drifting 8(.
So just had a wander around checking out the various animals in their shitty cages and trying to get shots through the bars of their cages. I find it pretty tricky to get a half decent shot of animals in cages so I used my 70-200mm f2.8 L and got up as close to the bars as I could in order to get them way out of focus. Here are some results
This was the hardest one as this cage had really thick metal
bars and they were pretty close together.
An Australian photographer living on beautiful Okinawa island. I specialize in wedding photography, and shoot literally hundreds of weddings each year with my company Watabe Wedding. But I love to shoot a wide variety of subjects and also love teaching photography. I'm quite a gadget geek love to get the latest tech toys. When I'm not shooting weddings you'll find me practicing my craft in other ways, photographing my kids, Okinawa's amazing seascapes or listening to various photography podcasts.
