    Rasidel. Still loving the fish shots. Are you doing these at your place or spending way too much time in a local pet store? I wouldn't mind hearing a little about your setup/general techniques.

    Thanks!!

    hey - neither - I took these at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. I was there to shoot a Yelp! event (not sure you're familiar with that site but they do reviews of restaurants and other social attractions.. yelp.com) and of course I had to get some fish shots. It was the first time I took my camera there, haven't been there for many years - even though it's one of my fav attractions in Chicago. The only things I kept in mind were focus, general composition, and trying to get as little blur from movement as possible. No flash was needed because the tanks are fairly well-lit. Also, I don't like blinding fish I think a big part of it is I'm feeling very comfortable with the 50 1.4 - and I feel like I know how to use it now. I was at 1.8 for all of these. There are times when the DOF becomes a factor - such as for people shots - but it's something you get used to. You might have 1 or 2 people not in focus but overall it's not a dealbreaker. And, I try to ask them to get in the same plane the best I can, for instance if there's one person totally in the back or something. Here's 3 more shots I liked from the Aquarium..

    I like how you can't really tell there's any flash. And it's because, most of the light is ambient, with the flash being a fill. I feel that should be the goal of good indoor low-light photography, you should use just enough flash so its barely noticeable, or even not noticeable at all.


    The interior of the aquarium is on the darker side so really have to tune the flash to get the good natural exposure.


    I like the way the background plays with the foreground.

    Rasidel - Interesting, thanks.. The last time that I brought my camera to an aquarium it was actually at the Shedd. What a facility (actually the entire campus is amazing). I took a few shots through the glass but I ended up with a lot of reflections and I picked up a lot of smudges, etc. from the glass. I can't remember if I was as shooting as shallow at 1.8 though. I'll keep that in mind the next time as it should throw the glass sufficiently OOF assuming that the subject is a little back of the glass.

    oh and I should let you know, I did do some "cleanup" on the shots. It's going to be very tough to get a totally clear shot in a fish tank. Here is the original compared to the final:
