Default Jellyfish

Ok I need some expert advice. I am seeking input on how to take this type of photo more successful. This was taken in very dark lighting and the jellyfish believe it or not was moving pretty quick. I used shutter priority at 1/30 with ISO at 400. Any sugguestions?

Thanks

I would have not cropped the picture as much as you did. Maybe you could increase the sharpness a bit.

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately I did not crop it, however it was a bad framing job

I was concentrating on keeping steady that I forgot that important detail.

You did everything right, nature just didn't cooperate. You simply need to take it when there's more light so you can speed up the shutter. First impression would be to speed it up and use a strobe, however lots of strobe lighting will usually make these guys blend into the background pretty badly.

Overall, not a bad jelly shot. These are really hard to get.
