Hoping someone is around who is experienced in shooting at a large aquarium. I am going tomorrow to hopefully shoot the jellyfish. I have a homework assignment on backlighting and am hoping to capture their translucency. I have several lenses in mind... NIkkor 24-701:2/8G ED, 50mm AFD 1.4, or my Nikkor 105 mm VR.

If I place the len hood up to the glass to prevent camera shake, does this also allow for more DOF if needed? I am not planning on taking a tripod or monopod as there will probably be a gazillion wee ones running around.

Thanks in advance,

Cathy Scrivnor
