You have to get permission (and I think pay a fee) to take photos professionally that you could sell, but otherwise the zoo is a fun place to practice photography. I really like shooting wildlife and the zoo lets you get a lot closer to different animals than you’d otherwise find in the woods of Michigan or Ohio.
I try not to do it too much, but for this image I replaced the sky. The original photo was a solid paler blue, and I thought that these clouds better fit the feel of the image.
