There are several ways to post process animal photos.  There really is no right or wrong way and quite honestly I am no expert at it either.  I tend to enjoy a nice solid background as it tends to allow the personality of the animal to flourish without distractions.

On Monday I discussed several ways to capture portraits of zoo animals.  Today I am going to show you a quick tutorial dedicated to making those personalities pop off the page.  Take a look at the before and after, if it is your cup of tea then by all means take a seat and share one with me, I love tea!
