The subject of my photo essay is aquatic animals, these photos were taken the the New England Aquarium in Boston. I selected the aquarium because I thought this would be the best place from my vacation to take photos, I didn't go very many places and this made the essay more interesting. I tried to portray a journey throughout the aquarium so that the viewer could see the journey I went on and saw what I did. My images create a "narrative" because it shows a journey through the aquarium. In photo 2 I got close to the tank to get an up-close picture of the octopus, the lighting was dark because there aren't many lights inside the aquarium besides the dull lighting in the tanks. In photo 9 I was further away because the penguins habitat was much different compared to most of the other animals, the lighting was brighter because the penguins were the first animal you saw so there was a lot of natural light coming in from all of the doors at the entrance. I unified the photos by putting the animals that were the same, for the most part, and by taking them all in the same place.
