Hey everyone! Just wanted to write a quick update to let you all know I'm still hanging around. I've been busy with a semi-permanent substitute teaching position of late, and in my free time I've been honing my Anatomy skills in preparation for applying to a Community College teaching position here in California. It's an exciting time right now -- I really, really would like to have some money, and I really, really would like to be able to teach at the college level, so this is a fantastic opportunity. Everybody keep your fingers crossed!
I did manage to rent a 2x teleconverter and scoot out to the Sacramento Zoo on short notice last week though, as I stumbled across information online that they had lion cubs (!) that had literally just gone on exhibit that week (!!). So naturally, I about pissed myself trying to get out there for some photography.
The teleconverter introduced some pretty major backfocus problems with my 300mm lens, so some of the shots are soft and some are outright worthless, but I nonetheless came away with some cute images. Hopefully, I'll be able to sift through/edit/post some photos soon.
Hope everyone had a happy holiday season and a happy new year, and best of luck getting back into the swing of things in 2015!
