Playtime

Almost every kid that goes to Sea World or other water park dreams of becoming a dolphin trainer, or at least this kid did. The thought of swimming with these incredible animals has always intrigued and fascinated me.  Many of these parks have a dolphin show where you can watch them from above, but the Texas State Aquarium has a large viewing room with a floor to ceiling window where you can watch them swim and play. Being down beside them this way, you realize how large these creatures truly are. 

Photos like these can be hard to shoot, as the light is relatively low, the subject is moving, and the thick window has reflections, finger smudges and other challenges. Don’t use your flash, set your ISO to a higher setting and shoot several photos so you can pick your favorite.
