Jellyfish - California, July 2008



Jellyfish are such alien creatures. These pictures are somewhat cheating -- they're from the jellyfish tanks in the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

We ordered the underwater housing for the Canon XSi today. Hopefully, we'll get some good pictures with the fish looking straight towards us (instead of their tails). In Belize, I had to focus on fish that were less jumpy: angelfish, butterfly fish and squirrel fish.

always fun shooting in aquariums. Good luck with the underwater housing, I might want to steal it some time :)

No problem -- just let us know. We decided to leave the housing at home this trip -- too many extras that we didn't get (dome port for lens and cable for strobe). We might need your advice on the dome port and the lenses we'll probably use.
