Thank you Scars

I do keep the glass clean, but the way that I get such clarity is from the twin flashes on 21" flex arms, this alows me to flood the tank with light from the sides or top, overcoming the flaws…Most of the time

First post

These shots were all taken with a Canon 5DMKII, Sigma f/2.8 150mm macro lens, flash was a defused twin head MT24 in a camera mounted Novoflex bracket. SS was 1/200. f/stop was between f/11 and f/18.

1. A rescue. He was jetting his butt kicked at the LFS. He is doing fairly well, his tail is on the mend, and his color is coming back. Still a little thin in the belly but he is eating regularly.


2. A birthday gift from Sunhawk (my wife)


3. One of our glass cats. From a school of 11.


4. Mama guarding her babies. Sadly they ended up as lunch for the discus.


5. one of our ottos.

Minja Thanks.

Scars Put the flash on top of the tank and shoot the flash down on the fish. Have the aperture set around f/5-22 to darken up the background and get the fish/flash area completely in focus. Take that shutter speed up and that ISO down.

Scars Some real nice images here. I personally love using flash, especially with fish. There's so much you can do to modify the light, and it allows you to stop down the aperture, drop that ISO and bring up that shutter speed.

1/200sec, ISO 100, f11
