Make that fence or screen disappear!

ZEBRA SMALLframe72dpi

Want to look straight into the eyes of a wild animal? There is a way to capture an object and animals through a fence or behind a screen, in a sanctuary or zoo, with a little use of these photography techniques.
Lens: 200mm or longer
Aperture: f/5.6 or larger
Shutter Speed: 1/250 or faster
Focus: Manual focus or single point auto focus

Prepare for your shot by first getting as close as you can to the chain link fence. The closer to the fence, the more successful you will be.
Zoom in as much as you can (200mm or longer). The longer the lens, the more successful you will be.
Focus past the chain link fence on your subject by using manual focus or single-point auto focus. This will insure that you don’t accidentally focus on the fence instead of your subject.
With the use of a large aperture (f/5.6 or larger) and zooming in on your subject, the depth of field will be very shallow. Because of the shallow depth of field, the farther that your subjects (lions) move away from the chain link fence, the more blurry the fence will become. Eventually, with your subject far enough away from the fence, the chain link fence will completely disappear.

Take your best shot!
