So I finally came home after being out of the province for a couple of weeks and lo and behold.. my Kribs spawned while I was away. There appear to be several hundred (I'm estiamting around 350-400) fry that have survived and the parents are guarding closely.

Ive been trying to take pictures of the little buggers.. but the tank is way too dark.

Yes I have a flash.. lol The problem is the tank is too dark to focus through... I've been trying though... I took about 65 pictures and not a single one turned out last night

Gareth, focus on any well-lit object that's about 10 inches away, then depress the shutter button halfway down to lock the focus. Now move the camera to the fish and keep it roughly the same distance, and press the button all the way down to capture them.

2la I've been trying the ol "focus 'n shift" method, its really difficult in this tank still... There are so many obstructions in the tank that its hard to get the camera focused and then moved into position before they have moved somewhere else.

Basically if I want to use the flash I have to shoot on a 45 degree angle to avoid flash reflection, and that angle only gives me a few shooting angles I can possibly work with. I've come close a couple of times, but its really awkward.

Oh.. and the tank is too dark to take stills without using the flash... heh... 20 watts of light over a 27 Gallon tank... And its full of mopani so the water is a nice dark amber colour...

Yes, there's a certain 'striking oil' element to this. Of course I should have mentioned that you keep the flash on; focusing on another object merely allows you to set the focal length. Then it's point, shoot...and pray.

Oh yeah.. heh heh... I'm not new to digital photography, but I generally keep my mouth shut so the experts can give a more accurate response. I'm more lazy then I am inexperienced.. lol
