A few more shots from my student Peter’s fabulous aquarium:
(As always, click through to view original size to see the shots properly).
For these snaps, I used the standard lens and 1/160th second at f/5.6, ISO 800 for the faster fish; 1/125th sec at f/8.0, ISO 800 for the more depth-of-field shots of the slower fish.
And I make it easy on myself:
- I shoot perpendicular to the glass
- I look for contrasty situations and good light.
- I shoot multiple shots. It is OK to shoot 6-12 shots to get one razor-sharp one!
This way, you can get good shots without pain.
