Want to learn how to get into photography? I've created a four part series on the basics of photography just for you! 
There are three settings that together are called the Exposure Triangle, since they all work together to make a photo look the way it does. If one of these is out of balance with the scene, something will be wrong in the photo. For example if your shutter speed is too long and your subject is moving you will have a blurry photo. Understanding these settings, their effects and how they work together will make you a better photographer. Below is a ...

The Florida Panther

This beautiful cat is currently listed as endangered, with only an estimated 100-160 left in the wild. It lives in the forests of Southern Florida and is a subspecies of the cougar. It's biggest threats are from alligators, its natural predator, and humans due to poaching.

+Timisha Livingston Yes, Bagheera is a black panther, but he was a black leopard from india. Black panthers are leopards or jaguars. Black cougars are called "melanistic". It's the opposite of albino. Lynx are cool. None should die out.

Clouded Leopard

The best climbing cat in the world is the #CloudedLeopard  from southeast Asia, it can climb on tree limbs upside down and hang by it's hind paws. It's small size allows it to be agile and graceful but it's still considered a big cat. It isn't a type of leopard but a different species of wildcat.

The weaver is a bird from Africa and Asia that builds large nests, usually with the entrance facing down. In some cases weavers will build their nests together, living within the same nest in individual "apartments".

Collective Soul

One of my favorite bands when I was in high school was Collective Soul. This weekend they performed at Busch Gardens here in Tampa and they put on an amazing show. It was so laid back, they interacted with the audience throughout the whole show and made it a lot of fun. I was able to get a bunch of really good shots.

Western Lowland Gorilla

These gorillas live in the dense rain forests Central Africa and can eat up to 40 pounds of vegetation per day. Currently listed as critically endangered, the western lowland gorilla faces many threats to their way of life. Deforestation and farming, war, mining and oil drilling all contribute to their current status. This baby was born just a few months ago and will rely on his mother for about 3 years before becoming more independent.

Meerkats

These small burrowing animals live in large underground networks of tunnels, in "clans" of around 20 members. They are extremely social animals, often grooming each other. One or more of the group will be a lookout to watch for predators for the rest of the clan.

Cheetah Cub

Cheetahs need to grow up quickly to survive the harsh environment they live in. They leave their mother to go off on their own before they reach the age of two.

Behind the Photo - HDR Workflow

This week I'm taking you behind the scenes on my #HDR   workflow, editing this image I took at the Lowry Park Zoo in #Tampa .

I'll show you step by step what I did to make these five bracketed shots into one perfect image.

#Photoshop   #Lightroom  
What is HDR? HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and it's basically a fancy term for capturing the full range of light, color and detail of a scene. It's done by setting up your camera to take multiple shots at varying exposures and then merging them together into one shot.

Photography Tips and Techniques
Introduction
I like to stay active and get outdoors. I can be spontaneous and I love to travel to near and far off places. Travel is probably the thing I'm most passionate about. I've been to Italy, Egypt, all across the U.S., and the Caribbean. I can't get enough of other places and I have a laundry list of places I want to go.

I really enjoy photography as well, I will definitely be posting lots of pictures to my stream and I hope you like them.
