London Zoo Wonderful September sun, long lenses and the joy of going to the Zoo !! Humboldt penguins put on a synchronised show as the big cats slumbered and the fruit bats flitted through the rainforest canopy.

Inside Normansfield's gloomy nighttime theatre. High ISO and Shutter Priority at 1/60th sec are needed to make the images work. A loss of some quality inevitable with High ISO. Images stitched into Stop-Motion on Gifmaker.me - which allows you output to Video as well as GIF.

Studio still life Y7&8
Camera Shutter Priority 125th Sec ISO 400. Keep very still. Light LED light boxes or off-camera flash. A household lamp will work almost as well - but colour temperature may need to be adjusted on the camera or afterwards in ps. Backdrop Black cloth/velvet or craft acrylic/card Squirty water bottle Led lights are brilliant - get them as close to the subject as possible. To improve quality a tripod would allow lower ISO and greater depth of field - but 400 ISO is fine quality-wise and it's probably better to work handheld.
