Sea Life I
Taken at Sea Life, Oporto.
This was the second time I went to Sea Life. I really like the big aquariums with all those strange fishes that I will not even dare to pronounce or write. So if you want to know more about the fishes in the picture, just go to Sea Life and they will be happy to explain it to you. :)
Also, the first time I went there I took a 450D with a 50mm f1.8 set-up. I've done a nice upgrade since then and got a 5DmarkII.
I wanted to see how the new camera behaved with the high ISO's in very low light conditions and using a F4 lens (definitely not a fast lens).
Also I know I still have a lot to learn about light and taking pictures. And I always wanted to do the hard challenges.
Going into a building with fast moving subjects (the fishes), very low light conditions (almost dark inside sea life except the aquariums) and with several optical effects (reflections on the glasses, double glasses that distort image, etc) is what I call an interesting challenge to learn how to master the light basics with a non-fast lens while taking pictures. :)
Therefore I went once more to Sea Life to learn a bit more and try new techniques. I already knew the aquariums and the fishes, so this help me concentrate on the task in hands. :)
The following pictures on the next couple of days will be a short overview on this experience.
Lesson nr. 1: Next time I need to bring a fast lens. F4 was not adequate to this job. But it was what I had, so I took the most of it.
