Let us see what are the “ABC” in photography. They are nothing but the three basic parameters which every camera will have. They are Aperture, Shutter speed, and ISO, as shown in the figure.

Nowadays, most of the digital cameras/point and shoot cameras will give you access to control these three parameters. A Digital SLR camera would help you to gain a better control over these.

This will help you to get the perfect shot.
The zoo is one of the best places to start practicing wildlife photography. There are many challenges you will face while trying to get that perfect shot. The biggest hurdle will be the enclosures or cages in which animals are kept in. The cages differ from one zoo to another. In some zoos, animals like deer, bear, and monkeys are kept in cages made of strong wire meshes and in other places metal-barred enclosures are used. The important thing to note here is the size of the opening in the mesh. You will have a hard time if the opening is very small. Nowadays, most zoos replicate the natural surroundings of the animals inside their enclosures. This will help you in getting better pictures.
