There was a photographer's night at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach on Tuesday. My first time shooting under given condition:

Cool shots. Is this an aquarium sponsored photo day?

Thanks. :)

I wouldn't say "sponsored." We still had to pay to get in. But the aquarium did specifically designate the date/time (6-9pm) that it was held and also dimmed the indoor lighting as much as they could to help photographers get better photos. Tripods and lighting equipment were also allowed (as long as you don't become a fire hazard blocking hallways). The regular visitors were herded out by 6pm so that during this time, it would be limited to those with the intent of taking photos.

Nikon actually had a sponsored booth there, however. I didn't stop by but I know they had some camera bodies on display, as well as a supply of lenses that you could loan out for free (w/ your driver's license as security deposit) for the event and return when you're done at the end of the night. So it was pretty nice to see Nikon doing something like that. Not sure why Canon didn't think of it, or perhaps they weren't approached. Or perhaps Nikon helped sponsor some of the event, which prevented Canon from showing up. :D
