I find it's a numbers game...100-200 shots for a single decent picture, and just taking lots of shots for practice. Taking pictures later at night when the fish have been fed and are quieter helps as well.

That is a great write up on photography.Just learning how to set up your camera properly will make a huge improvement. You will still take a hundred or more shots looking for that one good one,but you will end up with a much better selection to choose from!:19:

The main things you want is shut out/off any light source other than the tank with the fish you want to to take the photo of. Get the camera as still as possible (tripod, or hold still against the glass). Lastly mess around with your camera setting to find the best one.

WOW thanks.....thats kind of what i figured tho...trial and error...and curse words of course..i took some the other day..and yeah I do need a tripod or just something to keep the camera still cause most the settings on my camera besides auto you have to have the cam perfectly stilll..and i didnt have my bloody mary before i tried taking the pics:hmm3grin2orange: so my hand was a little shaky...

Lmao yup

"trial....error...sweat...tears...patience.......an d a swear word or two thrown in at crucial moments gone bad...kinda sums it up for us... "

When i take a shot and I am feeling shakey.I breath slowly and on the third breathe while exhaling I slowly squeeze the button.It sounds wierd but thats what I was taught when shooting a rifle and I find it works great with cameras as well!:19:

Sounguru please finish soon!!That is an awesome write up!:c3:
