It is a difficult proposition, shooting into what is essentially a giant fish tank, which is out doors and in the presence of a crowd. I experimented with extending the lens hood on my lens (one of those flexible silicone rubber sorts) and placing it flush on the glass. I left the lens at its widest angle and lowest f stop and shot at a ludicrous 3200 iso speed. I think it’s kind of neat with the vignetting forming the circular pattern.
