This shot was taken at the Baltimore Aquarium’s Jelly Invasion exhibit.

This shot was taken hand held at a fairly high ISO. The bold colors are due to the lighting that they have above the tanks. Every once in a while, one of the jellies would float into the path of one of the flood lights shining down and the colors would just POP.

    WOW this is awesome

  • Thanks Mike, took quite a few shots of the jellyfish. Can be tough with the crowds and they don’t always want to cooperate. Really like the way this one turned out. Thanks for the compliment!

    It makes me feel like I’m there with them (Although I never have been, I can imagine). Stellar shot!

  • Thanks Jonathon! If there’s an aquarium near where you live, it’s a fun place to go to shoot.
