Thumbs up Elmo's Fish Pics!

Hey! I was going to post in the "Post some fish pix!" thread, but I want to continually update this thread with new pics as I add them to my 40B Journal, plus some exclusive ones that won't be in my tank journal , and I have a ton of pics to post! Plus I figure there will be a larger audience here, and that people that see this will be more interested since they're probably looking for pictures thanks to this new photography section...

Anyways, here's some pics!

Here is a question, how do you get the background so black? Do you edit out the background, or is the the above tank flash?

Also, can I have your camera and/or camera skillz?

I do add a little contrast, but its mostly from the off camera flash being above the tank. I used matte black paint for the background as well, since I didn't want any reflections from the flash going off...

The camera isnt so important, I could take the same pics with a D90, as far as the skills, depends how much to airmail myself to Washington

I love the black backgrounds It helps the subject stand out and makes everything look a bit more "mysterious".

Sorry I'm a little late, but thanks! I love the black background too, really makes everything pop and adds mystery like you said

Nice pics, I like 3 and 14 the best. Are all these with flash above tank? Did you modify the flash output?

Ooh! Pretty! You must practice a lot at that(and have a good camera). All pictures I take of small things are blurry.

Yes, all with off camera flash above the tank...and yes, but the actual power varies so much that I really couldn't give you a solid answer, it really just depends on the shot...The SB-600 itself was bare though, just the plain ol' flash with no modifiers if that's what you meant...

Heh, you could definitely say that. I am a pro photographer though, so I should be able to get nice results more easily than someone that just started, so don't give me too much credit

Yep, thanks that's what I was looking for if you used any modifiers on the flash or other equipment.

Thought I'd share a different take on a self portrait! Rest of the fish pics are on the way soon....figured I would try the SB-910 out tonight instead of the usual SB-600, not that it makes much difference with fish pics lol...

What's your photographic specialty?

Very nice photos!
I wanted to use them to be my calendar pictures at work (company so cheap these days that they don't even buy us calendars) but with the big black background it will kill the toner. Do you have some in white background?

No macro shots? I know you must have a macro lens of some sort in your bag.
