Gorilla @ DC Zoo 12/11/2005

Taken inside. I figured out how to use my Flash (sb-800) while disconnected from the camera. This guide was awesome.

 

Converted to Black&White.

 

I didn't know how he would react when I took the shot. After the shot he stirred a bit, and I thought it best to settle for just the one photo. He was two feet from the glass tops, and I had the remote flash about 4-5 feet from him, below and to the left of this.

 

See also this shot I took a more recently of him.

D70s, Tamron 18-200, sb-800 remote flash.

 

Yay!
