Gave my betta a photoshoot

I did this quite a while ago, but thought I'd share it just now.

I put the betta in quite a small tank and setup a few speedlights (external flashes) around the tank. Had a black piece of cardboard behind the tank and then reduced it down to a solid black in photoshop. I'm not sure that he liked the speedlights lighting up his tank every few seconds, but whatever. Lol.

It'd be good to do it again and get his fins at full extension. Might be tricky mounting the mirror without getting it in the photo, though, and I can't really be bothered.

I got the idea from a photo series I saw on petapixel. The photos this guy shot are stunning! I couldn't capture any of mine in mid turn like he has.
