On our third day in Acadia, we decided to check out Bar Harbor and take a whale watching tour instead of exploring more of the park. Along with seeing some whales on the tour, we also saw several sea birds and what felt like hundreds of dolphins.
Since dolphins and whales can pop out of the water in unexpected locations, I chose to use a larger aperture which allows more of the frame to be in focus. I paired this with manual mode instead of aperture priority, allowing for more consistently exposed shots that wouldn’t be affected by the water’s reflection.
