This photoshoot came with several challenges: 99.99% of the shots are about moving subjects. A fast shutter meant a large aperture. But in late afternoon, I was losing light and my pictures became darker and a higher ISO lead to more noise. I was able to select 18 pictures from the 157 shots.
The place: Animal City located in Nahr El Kalb.
Conditions: Far from perfect. Some cages are really too small and I could not understand why people were allowed to feed the animals. The place calls itself a refuge. To my knowledge, a refuge is a place for wounded animals who are set free in their natural habitat once healed. If not, placed in a zoo which purpose is to raise awareness about the animal and how to protect it.
