I used the built in RAW Editor in CS5. Adjusted your white balance, blacks, vibrant, and sharpness. Don't over do it otherwise it'll be over PP'd and that's a NO NO. Just adjust to where it looks closest to real life.

What settings are you using on that DSLR of yours Zach?

aperture?
shutter?
ISO?

Pics are definitely an improvement. Nice job.

Nick, I've been messing with settings a lot lately, but I believe those were shot with ISO at 200, Shutter speed was at like 2.5?... and I'm not sure what aperture was set at.

Thanks!

:edit Where did I get that info? lol went into the camera and got this in the details. ISO 200, 1/5 ( Im assuming that is shutter speed) and then F3.1 I'm guessing that is aperture.. I feel stupid, ha!

Your edit is correct.

1/5 means 1/5 of a second. That's actually a very slow shutter hence the reason your pics aren't as clear. You can try upping the ISO followed by raising the shutter speed to 1/60s. With a faster shutter you can eliminate motion blur. Try that and report back with your results.

Leave the aperture at a lower setting since you're not shooting with an off shoe flash. This will enable you to shoot in lower light conditions. You may think t5hos are high light for plants, but for a camera it's the bare minimum haha. The difference you'll see is a much shallower DoF (Depth of field) at lower apertures. DoF is the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp in an image.

Awesome, thanks for the great info, Nick! The reason I had the shutter speed set so low was because my pics were turning out dark with it higher... I never even thought to raise the ISO along with the shutter speed! I don't even have T5HO on this tank, ha! Just a 12 or so watt CFL.. it's very low light lol. Thanks again, Nick, I will definitely try this out today!
