Como Park Zoo & Conservatory

[smartslider3 slider=60]

Minneapolis can be tricky weather wise so the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, free entry, is a great way to hedge your bet. Indoors at the conservatory, you will find lovely flowers and a variety of exotic plants, even an array of reptiles and birds, all to be the subject for your DPA instructor to demonstrate and supervise composition strategies to turn snap shots into compelling images. You will have the chance to catch close up photos to allow a dreamy portrait of a flower or animal, as well as more panoramic captures of a broader scene.

The fountain can be the subject for lessons in shutter speed priority shooting, rendering a split second crystal clear of water stopped dead in its tracks, or an impressionistic, velvety rendition of flowing water.

If it is not too cold more time can be spent along charming walkways where you will encounter all sorts of wildlife not ordinarily found in Minneapolis!
