Just Wondering

Am I the only one that browses through some of the longer threads just for the pictures? haha I do like to read all the information from time to time but, my eyes start hurting after awhile. Im just amazed most of the time how well all of your tanks look and then I feel bad for how mine looks and how my crappy camera only makes it look worse. haha

So, thanks to everyone that posts pictures, true inspiration.

Im trying to find someone that I know with a good camera, I want to see if I can get them to come over and snap a few for me. See, the LCD screen on mine is broke so I can't adjust any of the settings, therfore the flash is always on and I can't adjust for inside or under florescent lighting pics. I do however turn out the bedroom lights and angle the shots to avoid glare but, the flash completely ruins the colors in the tank especially on my neons.

Ya beat me to it. I covered the flash up on my old camera with a piece of electrical tape. Also put the camera on someting stationary to keep it from moving. A chair, a table, whatever.

When I cover up the flash the picture ends up coming out almost black no matter how much light is in the tank.

Hmm I thought I was the only one, I would search for what I'm looking for then just look at all the pictures. Then I get depressed about my tank but then I just keep telling myself well it's better than before and I'm happy again. Lol

I need to try that tape over flash method with my crappy camera too.

SEE! There are many of us that would put pictures before words. To be honest though, the pictures of your tanks give me more inspiration than the words. I can read and read and read, gather all this information but, it's not until I see what can become of said information that I feel awe inspired.
