Vivid Sydney 2015 Chatswood Jellyfish

There wasn't much real estate to play with however Chatswood had given me a great show. The projection onto a 3 sided walls make an interesting view. Didn't a fast wide angle lens so I just compose the best I could.

Since I didn't have a fast lens, I come back to my trusty Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4 lens. If I could put just one lens this is the lens. It it fast enough to take in low light situation, and in this particular shot I want to freeze the fast moving subjects. 1/30 of a second was good enough to do it. I open the aperture wide open to do this. I was far enough that deep of field is not an issue.

Initially I was going to let my intervalometer do all the hard work for me, as I was photography time-lapse as well. It didn't work, so I overrode it and do it manually which sometime could be a pain. Luckily in future camera that I am thinking of buying, the intervalometer is built in.
