Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California.
Time
This was shot around 2pm. However since this was taken indoors the time of day had no impact on the lighting.
Lighting
The lighting that is used in the aquarium really works towards your favor. Unfortunately there was very little light in this tank, so a slower shutter speed had to be used.
Equipment
This was shot using a Canon Rebel T5 camera with a EF-S 24mm f/2.8 lens. No other equipment was used.
Inspiration
I simply decided to spend the day at the aquarium with my girlfriend and brought my camera along. The shots that I left with far exceeded my expectations of what I expected to see at the aquarium.
Editing
I did do some basic editing in adobe lightroom. I had to increase the exposure of the photo since it was taken in such low light and I slightly increased the saturation of the image as well.
In my camera bag
I use my EF-S 24mm f/2.8 lens more than anything else. I almost always carry around my EF-S 50mm f/1.8 and my Rokinon 8mm Fisheye Lens.
Feedback
If you're shooting at an aquarium try to focus on areas of the tank where light reflects directly of the fish, or jellyfish for that matter.
