Faces in the Apenheul

Javaanse langoer - Javan lutung

Finally I did it. I bought zoooooooooooooooom! First I wanted to wait till Christmas, but yesterday I went to Urk and bought a Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5.0-6.3 Di VC USD G2 Canon at CameraNU.

Today I went to the Apenheul to try to make my first shots. Oh my, the camera and the lens weigh a ton or so. I’ll probably need to train my arms to be able to use it. I tried it with a tripod, but that is not me. You can’t react quick enough to the shot when the camera is on a tripod.

Sharing some of my first attempts. They are taken from a great distance.

  1. Amazing, and Awesome photo shoots. The photos are fantastic. You say the pictures were at a distance, yet, the photos give no hint of difficulty which so ever to me. I’m not a professional evaluating pictures, but the photos looked very realistic, clear, with excellent quality.
    Thanks for sharing them with me.
    Best wishes in selling them and all you work.
