On Saturday, I spent the day at the National Aquarium in Baltimore with my good friend Jessi. I hadn’t been to an aquarium in a very long time and I was very excited to see what this one had to over. It was a lot smaller than I anticipated and also more crowded. Regardless Jessi and I had a great time. I took over three hundred photos, and about half of them were of jellyfish. Seriously, the jellyfish are amazing! It’s worth the money it costs to get in, just to see the jellyfish.
I had several issues while trying to get the photos I wanted. The first obstacle for me was the lighting. I tried everything but the lighting was not quite natural and not quite flourescent, and there was never quite enough of it. I couldn’t figure it out. Combine my lighting frustrations with subjects thatmovereallyfast and I’m surprised I walked away with any photos I liked. Another big inconvenience were the sheer number of people who also wanted to see the tanks. I felt bad blocking the view of a two-year-old so I could get a decent photo. Also, I should have played around with some reflection photos, but I didn’t actually think about it until I looked at the photos later, and got upset by accidental reflections ruining a few. Despite these issues, I enjoyed myself immensely and I am quite delighted by a few of the photos. I hope you like them as well! Happy Monday!
