Editing Cebus apella in Lightroom

You must be thinking or goes off to find Uncle Google what’s a Cebus apella? Well is basically a Monkey species known as Brown Capuchin.

This batch of images have been sitting in my hard drive since 2012. I got this mixed feeling should i get rid of it since i had already backup the images? I can’t explain any logical reason why i keep it, but i did for 7 years. It never had annoyed me seeing the images around. So i decided to pull out 3 images and put it in the Lightroom to cook some magic! A few simple push of the sliders and clicks turns my images better than i can do it in 2012.

What most appeal to me about Cebus apella is the monkey had a really small face which resemble a human’s face. Because am not an animal or wildlife photographer, i basically just jumped on the opportunity and had fun photographing animals without thinking too much technical approach. That will kill off the joy and creativity i had on my leisure day. That doesn’t mean i did not think, but i wanted to capture moments of animals in action and their habitant in the zoo.

Hope you enjoy the three images below.

Hanging on the tree and had a direct view of the monkey’s expression. Having beautiful backlight from the back, and i also fire off a direct flash in the front.

Using my trusty 70-200 to capture this Brown Capuchin having a stern expression.

This expression totally rock me!

Now i think again, why do i keep old batches of images. The closest reason i can give you why i keep it is because i like these animal images.

I hope mankind go easily on the forest, is better to preserve than destroy. There will forever be debate of whether animal should be cage or leave them in the wild? There is not right or wrong answer, i think the zoo must provide an utmost environment for these species to live in. If the human continue to make damage our only planet, the animals will extinct first follow by human beings, that’s how i see it.
