I shot this in a pitch black room using the glow from the tank as my only light source. I used a high ISO and large aperture to try to get as much light in as possible. Even at this high ISO, this photo didn’t show much noise or grain. I was surprised actually! My older Nikon D50 would’ve had grain for sure. I guess my new camera is as good as they say? Can you guess which camera that is?

Moving sea life is almost as hard to capture as moving kids. Jellyfish weren’t as difficult since I couldn’t tell where it’s face was! hehe
