Photo Friday #2

Welcome back to photo Friday!!  Today we are taking our photography to another level....Literally.....we are shooting under the sea from the Chattanooga Aquarium.....

Have you even seen a penguin from under the water??  Pretty cool huh!!??

This cutie pie just wanted some attention!

ohh the jellyfish!  They look like they are in space! hah

How can something so deadly be so beautiful!!??

one fish, two fish, three fish, four.......If you look close you can see the shark sneaking by.....

Look at the yellow!!!  I wish I could wear that color as well as he does! 

And YES....there is a butterfly exhibit in the Chattanooga aquarium! 

All pictures were taken with:
Nikon D7000
Lens: 50mm 1.4
(because I took these a few weeks ago.....most were taken in "AUTO" with flash override)
I know, I know...shame on me....I promise I'm working my way up to the big boy MANUAL mode!!

TIP FOR THE DAY.....TAKE YOUR CAMERA EVERYWHERE!!!  You will hear this all the time....but never know what the view will be over your shoulder while pumping gas on the commute home from work!!  I took this photo yesterday around 6ish while at the gas station.....No editing was done, this is straight out of my camera!  If the huge sign and power lines were gone it would be a pretty perfect picture.....I guess that's what Photoshop is for!

Nikon D7000
Lens: 50mm 1.4
Aperture 3.2
ISO....not really sure??
Special settings....."Scene" - sunset


  1. Those pics from the aquarium are gorgeous!! I wish mine from the aquarium we went to in Hawaii would have turned out this great! And I love your advice...when I first got my camera I took it everywhere, but I have slowly been letting it slide.

  2. Beautiful aquarium shots! I'm guilty of doing most of my shots in auto and I feel like that's ok! I'm your new follower.
