Trying to take snapshots of the animals at the zoo or dogs in your fenced yard, but bars and fencing get in the way? What to do, what to do? 

It's easy to get rid of distracting elements with a bit of know-how. 

  1. Set your lens to telephoto
  2. Choose AV (for Canon cameras) or A (for Nikon cameras) and hold the aperture as wide open as possible
  3. Approach the cage as close as safely possible and shoot

Now, see how well the shot turns out. The cage bars are gone, and the animals look like they're in the wild.
