121: #123 Go Fish

Go fish, go! Jellyfish that the Akron Zoo again.

An experiment making an animated gif in PSE5

Well, blogger doesn't show the animation in that gif, so let's try linking to it on my website

click here for animation

For whoever is interested, it was dark in the display house and the tanks were lit up.
These were taken hand-held with the kit lens. Here's the EXIF:

Shutter speed: 1/60 sec
Aperture: 5.6
Exposure mode: Av
Flash: Off
Metering mode: Spot
Drive mode: Continuous: frame 1
ISO: 1600
Lens: 18 to 55mm
Focal length: 55mm
AF mode: One-shot AF
Image size: 2256 x 1504
Image quality: Raw
White balance: Auto
Color space: AdobeRGB
Saturation: Normal
Sharpness: Normal
Contrast: Normal
Tone: Normal

They turned out pretty good using an ISO of 1600!


  1. What an absolutely fabulous shot, impressive.

  2. Cool animation--too bad blogger wouldn't show it!

  3. Those jellyfish just glow in this, how cool! Great animation too! I am so impressed by these shots!!

  4. Another great jellyfish picture. I like the animation. What a fun trick

  5. I never thought I'd ever describe jellyfish as breathtaking but i'm in awe.

  6. I thought the photo was fantastic until I open the GIF and then I was bowled over! Thanks so much for sharing that with us....

  7. Oh, I meant to ask - did you use a tripod or monopod to catch these?

  8. What fun! I haven't seen the animation yet, but the colors and the orientation of the jellyfish make this photo pulse with life.

  9. Great shot. I love the colors against that blue.

  10. Thanks for adding the exif data....
