Western Lowland Gorilla at the Franklin Park Zoo
Photographer: Fred Wasmer
Location: Franklin Park Zoo, Boston, Massachusetts
It was pouring rain the day I visited Boston's Franklin Park Zoo, so I spent most of my time in the enclosed Tropical Forest exhibit, photographing the primates. The dramatic lighting of this Western Lowland Gorilla portrait comes from an off-camera remote flash that was positioned near the floor off to my right. Since the flash was located well away from the camera, no reflected glare is visible on the glass wall that separated the gorilla and myself.
