Time for another field trip! Though I’ve lived in the Los Angeles area most of my life, I’ve never been to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach before. But since I was thinking about creating an ocean-themed design for Surtex, it seemed the perfect time to visit. I’m not used to taking photos of moving subjects in a low light setting, so I ended up taking two cameras plus my iphone, in case one of them worked out better. It turns out that some of my iPhone photos actually turned out better than the ones I took with the real cameras. Who would have thunk? In any case, below are some of the interesting critters I came across.
