Aquarium Photo Tips

You have an aquarium at home? Or you will visit such a giant aquarium at Seaworld? Now try to make the aquarium as images of objects of interest. The challenge of shooting in a glass aquarium is located between the lens and the object image, whereas we want to produce images without the slightest trace of glass. Another challenge is the lack of light.
If all this time you’ve tried to make a picture with the object fish (or plants) in the aquarium and not always satisfactory, try some of these tips:
Use the fastest lens you have. Because the fish in the aquarium tend to move when lighting in aquariums tend to be very less compared to outdoors. Therefore, use the fastest lens you have. Lens with f/2.8 or faster aperture will help.
Buy Rubber Lens Hood. It costs about Rp. 100 thousand, but very rewarding. When photographing an object through the glass, we have to make sure that the distance between the lens and the glass should be as close and as stable as possible. By installing a rubber lens hood, we can make the lens as closely attached to the glass and thus the reflection of the glass will be removed. You can buy this rubber hood here.
Do not use polarizer filter. If you install the filter polariser (CPL) when photographing an object through the glass, it is likely there will be color flare (extra light that appear in the photos due to the reflection angle) that ruin your photo.
Position the camera Perpendiculars With Glass. Since you will be shooting through the glass, make sure the position of the lens actually perpendicular to the plane of glass. If a bit wonky, then there will be an odd magnification effect as glass and water as if it acts as a magnifying glass.
Set ISO Amounting Maybe.
Often the lens was not fast enough to capture fast movement of water animals, for example, for photographing jellyfish agile above, ISO up to 3200 had to be sacrificed because of the lack of lighting. The important thing was caught with a sharp object, although the noise so it looks as shown below.
