I used to be into photography big time.
Haven't done anything in the past year, so I thought I would break out the DSL and try and get some good shots.

Your signature reminds me of a thought about all the pictures I needed to take to
get one that I thought actually was even close to noteworthy.
When first I started, I thought about one out of 10,000 was a keeper.
As you take more shots the number should drop. But don't hold your breath on it.
Especially in an aquarium. Hopefully you don't have to fight an autofocus as I do.

I guess if I were photographing a med or large fish it might work out OK but
small fish in most cases are too small for my autofocus to recognize and that
means it focuses on the nearest larger object.
Hopefully not all autofocuses work like mine.

Hi DW Sites,

Personally I think photography adds a whole new dimension to my hobby; a photo allows me to sit and critique my 'scapes without jumping up to mess with the fish, plants, filters, etc.
