A few more aquarium shots

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.
