Newport Aquarium Photography

What a Croc!

I recently visited Newport, Kentucky on the Ohio River a bridge distance from Cincinnati. I’ve been to Cincinnati only a handful of times yet this was my first time at the Newport Aquarium.

The last Aquarium I had visited was in Virginia Beach and it pales in comparison. My first impression of the Newport Aquarium was in part due to the little plaza it is located in. I really wish Louisville had something like this. It was beautiful. Clean and engaging plus it had a 5GUYS right in the plaza!

The cost for the general admission was 23 dollars for adults. I took this opportunity to test out my new camera (Nikon d3300) and who wouldn’t want some Newport Aquarium Photography to show off on a portfolio website!

Here are a few of the best images I captured, If you are interested in seeing more Newport Aquarium Photography check out the entire album on facebook. Of the many shots I took, my favorite subject was this wee crocodile. After many people walked by he seemed frozen in place until I walked up with my camera. He fixated on my every move and followed me around with a full 90 degree turn of his head. Here are the best in his series. Lastly it seemed to be a theme with photogenic aquatic life. This piranha was swimming straight for me several times, my camera couldn’t focus fast enough but for one time. Enjoy!
