  • Photography
    • Special considerations
      • Low light inside the aquarium.  There is no natural light
      • Utilize a faster shutter speed to freeze the motion of them swimming
      • A fast wide angle lens will be more useful than a telephoto lens
        • As focal length decreases, depth of field increases
      • Seeing the visual clutter
        • Checking foregrounds and backgrounds
      • Shooting through the glass (avoiding glare)
        • Get close
        • Utilize a circular polarizing filter
      • Post Processing
        • Check your hightlights
        • You will most likely need to life your shadows
        • Noise reduction
        • Color balance/Color grading
