Lens and Techniques

If I have shot the school previously and know the size and approachability factor I will use either a Tokina 10—17 mm fisheye zoom or a Nikon 12—24 mm or 17—35 mm zoom. In circumstances such as these it is so tempting to use the zoom facility of these modern wide angle lenses to get close optically and save the hassle of moving close to the school but this should be avoided whenever possible.

Get as close as you can physically and use the zoom only when you're unable to get closer. An exception to this would be when using Magic Filters. I've seen awesome results with the MF and schooling fish by using the alternative and unusual telephoto effect of a 105 mm lens.
