How to get good photos

I have a lot of trouble getting the camera to focus. And when it does, they move. What should I do to get good pictures? I am using a Nikon Coolpix L120

Light, (Natural Looking) Patience, and Love. :) Just get the best camera you can, and you need to take lots of pictures, and choose the best ones.

Lots of practice..and yes, good lighting, try not to use flash..it produces a lot of extra bright pix, with glare spots..try different angles, and wait for that right moment... and different settings on the camera, i use the Flower setting, I get some amazing pix:)

it also helps (if you're just showing off the fish, and not the tank) to take photos of them in their cups, before you introduce them to the tank. bettas tend to be stiller in the small environment, and obviously won't flit off two feet from where you're focused the second you hit the button.

I highly reccomend the macro setting, or a program shift setting with adjustable focus and whatnot. Hard to get the hang of but it's definitely worth it. :) Flash isn't so bad, but natural lighting is a fantastic thing. I'm not entirely familiar with your camera, so I apoligize that I can't give you more advice. Patience and a steady hand are key!
