Outstanding Aquarium Photos

by David Peterson 0 comments

You don't have to get wet to capture great shots of fish and other underwater creatures. All you need is a ticket, a good DSLR and a rubber lens hood. Great fish photos can be captured at any popular aquarium, provided you know the rules and you have a good eye for your subject. Here are a few examples of outstanding aquarium shots to help get you inspired.
