Visit to the Bronx Zoo

May 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I recently made a trip to the Bronx Zoo in New York.  It was a quick visit that was spent mostly in the World of Birds and the Northern Ponds (admiring the baby ducklings) but I did manage to take some photographs of the bears, lions, and African Wild Dogs.  To view the photos, go to: http://www.sharoncuartero.com/p880872846

Turkey Vulture

This turkey vulture resides at the Green Chimneys Wildlife and Rehabilitation Center in Brewster, New York.  I frequently see these birds flying around in the area where I live but they are often too far away to see their unique features.

Pileated Woodpecker

This morning I heard a soft hammering sound coming from one of our large front yard trees.  I looked up and saw what I believe was a female Pileated Woodpecker drilling away at a branch.  She stayed there for awhile giving me enough time grab my camera and take some photos and video.

Shooting in Harsh, Bright Light

February 07, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

A recent trip to the farm unfortunately coincided with the harshest part of the day lighting-wise.  It’s challenging to take photos when the sun is at its brightest but it can be done.  One trick that I like to use is placing the sun either directly above or to the side of my subject.

Below is a link to a good article discussing the benefits of a great adoption photo at your animal shelter.  

"What can reduce a pet’s length of stay in your shelter or rescue from 43 days to 14 days? A great adoption photo."
