Hi Gordon,

I'm a big fan of your tutorials/workshops and you've taught me a lot! Thank you and Keep it up.

I recently visited an aquarium and found it particularly hard to capture good quality shots. No shutter speed faster than 1/4th of a second to provide sufficient exposure @400 or better ISO most of the times. Slower shutterspeed is no good as fish move a lot..flash is no good either..
I have a Canon EOS T1i.

Any tips?

What lens were you using and what f stop did it use? You might need to use a faster lens.

A faster lens will allow more light thru which lets you use faster shutter speeds.

The 50mm f1.8 is a cheap fast lens for the Canon line and there are a number of zooms that use f2.8 that may be suitable.

One other thing you can try is using Tv to set an acceptable shutter speed and see if your camera can adjust the other settings appropriately.

Indeed, a faster lens is what you need. 50 mm F/1.8 is a good starting point, as well as 35 mm F/1.8 if you can get a bit closer
