    A few LBDPPMG members participated in a special "Photographers Only" night at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, on 1/31/10. Participation limited to 300 photographers, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Most of my photos are with Nikon D5000 & Nikkor 18-55 zoom, at ISO 2000, using available light. High ISO setting was recommended by the Nikon rep during the free class lecture, prior to the evening. The lack of digital noise is remarkable. I now wish that I had set ISO at 3200 to gain a bit of shutter speed or depth-of-field. Shooting through heavy Plexiglas into salt water creates focus, reflection, and refraction problems. Moving fish create a composition problem. Luck is the main contributor to a good photo.
