Photography Tips

The fish aquarium glass boxes are well decorated with the amazing light setup. As it is a dark room, one will feel the night photography kind of thing. Here are some tips that I used to get some cool shots.

  • This place is great for taking fish portraits as well as macros. You need a dedicated macro lens to get some close-up shots like the eye of fish, fish mouth, skin texture etc.
  • You can use a zoom lens or prime lens to get some cool portraits.You can do shoot some mid macros with 35mm or 50mm prime lens. I have used 35mm prime and 55-200 mm zoom lens to make this video.
  • You need to keep in mind some settings for entry-level cameras. You have to lower down the aperture to get the subject stand out. This ranges from f1.8 to f5.6. Please do increase your ISO to 400 to get some speed shutter. The shutter speed should be such faster that the image is not hazy or shaky.
