Check the link: [ADA view] How-to take aquascape photos
good post. thanks. 8)
Richard is still alive!!!!!!!!! Good to see you back buddy!!
Very basic, kind of misleading as I doubt many of the pros or would be pros take their pics on the auto settings..
Would be great to see say a ten minute vid of Amano himself giving some tips, not that he would be giving all his secrets away.
I think the main take-always from the clip are:
1. clean the glass
2. only use the light from the aquarium
3. use a tripod
Other settings would depend on the type of camera used. Nonetheless, for general aquascape photography (which is what this clip addressed), the settings suggested are perfect.
And use a Nikon
+1 Canon only
This post is only meant to help the guys who don't know how to take proper aquarium pics. It's not meant to be a professional photography course.
Trev, if we all could hire you to come take our pics, we would, but that would be a bit expensive.
Nikon is the best, but I use pentax. Canon go to hell.
Thanks for the vid.
The sad thing is, this is my camera
Schalk posted a nice thread on taking pics with a compact that was very good will see if I can find it. Hopefully I can upgrade soon also only own compacts.
