Want to capture aquatic life without getting wet? Head to the aquarium to get some great underwater shots:
– A rubber lens hood lets you press up to the glass and minimize stray light and reflections.
– Skip the polarizer. It can add strange colored flare when shooting through glass into water.
– Keep the lens parallel to the glass to reduce magnification irregularities.
