Sea Life in Konstanz

Last week, I went on the other side of the German border to go visit the Sea Life aquarium in Konstanz to take pictures. Here my favorites – and the full album is available on Google Photos or on Smugmug.

I enjoyed my visit – the aquariums are well presented, there’s a lot of information, and it seems very kid-friendly (which made MY life slightly more complicated because there was so many things at a lower level 😉 ). I think I may have missed some stuff – because it seems weird that an aquarium would not have any jellyfish (so I probably missed the jellyfish 😦 ).

On the photography side, I went with my K-1 fitted with my trusty 24-70/2.8 (I cannot BELIEVE I actually hesitated buying that glass. It’s wonderful.) I’m quite happy that it’s definitely possible to push the ISO to 6400 in low-light and to still get reasonable results – the noise is visible, but not too problematic. Autofocus was however sometimes pretty/very hard to get. I still need to study how to handle noise properly in Darktable, because right now I’m blindly applying a preset that I got… somewhere, and that does the job well enough, but I think there’s room for improvement there.

    1. C’est _avec_ le polarisant 😛 (Pour la plupart. Pas toutes. Et j’ai pas forcément tourné le polarisant dans le bon sens tout le temps pour cause de “y’a pas de lumière et chuis occupée à focuser tjutju con de poisson arrête de bouger”)
