Just about every aquarium in California has a jellyfish display similar to this one, but I never tire of watching them. Constantly moving and actually much faster than you’d think, these jellyfish are actually somewhat hard to photograph. There’s no such thing as predicting the image. You get set, keep your eye to the viewfinder and wait. You burn through a lot of images, but since they are constantly moving, there’s no two identical images. It helps to get pre-focused for where the jellyfish seem to pass by, but there’s no guarantee you’ll get one exactly focused, especially if you’re shooting at a large aperture. The name of the game is patience.

About the Author
I am a California professional photographer but am available for assignments anywhere. My typical assignments include event coverage for anything political or corporate in nature where the client requires documentation of the event for PR purposes. In addition, I work a lot with small to medium size businesses to create images that can be used in marketing, advertising, sales sheets, annual reports, menus, etc. I also work with a variety of client types in the building industry to make marketing photos of project interiors, exteriors, products and progress images.
If you would like more information about my services or have a need for high quality photography at a rate that works with your budget, feel free to contact me via email or telephone.
