I recently visited the Ripley's Aquarium, which has just opened in Toronto. It's a very interesting place to visit and I was impressed with the amount of attention that was payed to the Canadian Waters, exhibits. They had Sturgeon and Muskies and so many more fish. It was excellent to see this amazing variety.
My favourite exhibit was the jelly fish they are magical and beautiful creatures. Very difficult to capture in crowds, however. I recommend going to the aquarium when crowds will be sparse. Very early in the morning on a weekday may help but I suggest finishing your tour before the school groups begin to appear. The jellies were very difficult to capture. A tripod is essential. The low light in the aquarium requires a longer shutter speed and camera shake is inevitable. Digital noise is also another issue. Utilizing a very high ISO can create very noisy images. It is very important to experiment with different settings during your time in the aquarium. I ran all of these shots through a noise reduction program. My ISO was set to 3200 which the maximum my camera allows. The canon 50D is a durable and reliable camera but a little more range in ISO would really have helped me with these shots. Oh, well maybe next time. I'm hoping that you like these images regardless of the challenges.
The crowds can also be added to photographs. They help to tell a story of the human element in this beautiful water exhibit.
