Jellyfish

Jellyfish make great photography subjects. I shot these while my wife Michele and I were visiting the Monterrey Bay Aquarium in California. Their slow, steady and almost predictable movement lend themselves to great compositions. A place like the Monterrey Bay Aquarium has a number of different jellyfish exhibits and some of them use variable colored lighting. The primary difficulties with shooting in these conditions are dim lighting and the people traffic. However, if you can shoot at a high enough ISO and kindly convince people give you a few seconds to shoot you can capture some amazing images.

Photos like these make incredible statements when they're displayed at very large scale. They almost transport you into the ocean environment.When standing in front of one of these you can almost hear the sound of being under water and smell the ocean. The captivating depth of color and the strange yet comforting forms of the jellyfish can be mesmerizing.
