I don’t know if you’ve ever tried this, but you can photograph through glass as long the light is on the opposite side of the glass from you. This means you can capture some really interesting shots at an aquarium! My grandson, son, and I love visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium, so I’ve had ample opportunity to take these types of shots.

This is an example of a situation where the exposure compensation and live view features of your camera are indispensable. When the dominant area of the image is dark, like in this photo, most often a minus compensation will be needed. The colors and subjects seem out of our world!
