Yup, I'd like to see that!
I always like to use a high f-stop. Seems to help reduce distortion introduced by the glass of the tank. Tripod is a must. Also turn off all powerheads and flow because the exposure times are long.
pgreef, beautiful shots!
Pack, question for you. How do you get such nice fish shots? Do they stop and pose for you? Any tips on fish photography? I have a harder time capturing my moving target fish!
In homage to Deliverance--I have to say, "that sure is a purdy mouth!"
Seriously, though, that's a spectacular picture! Those two white lines, and that detail! Amazing.
:guitarist There's never a banjo around when you need one.....
man! these are some amazing shots! i want corals sooo bad now. *pounds on tank and yells, finish cycling you stupid tank! i want corals!*
Thanks! That is one of my favorites.
all them shots look grate. pg, mom and sparky. one more thing very clean tank glass helps to.
Absolutely. Wouldn't have thought to even say it, but you speak of probably THE most important aspect. It needs to look like the camera and the coral are both in the air.
and make sure you are parallel to your tank glass, otherwise distortion ....
I usually use around f4.5-5.6, I've never used a tripod but then again my shots are probably not the best ones here either lol
Also set your white balance correcly, around 10,000K should be good but manual WB would be best.
Top down shots can also look nice as they provide an unusual angle.
And of course a macro lens is recommended in order to get the most details.
Here are a few of my pics:
