Geee....guess I need a newer camera. I never had to take pics of a 'super-swimmer' before....would help me get better pics of my 7 kitties too. BTW...my kitties love to watch Sparkle swim around....one of them even sleeps in front of his tank every night.

Did you look at my other pics ... in my 'album'?

Too bad it's not in my budget right now :(

That is how I was feeling too, I just cannot get the shots I really want, bad lighting, uggh, or now that our Sammy is in his new tank, we have better lighting if he would stay near the light, anyways I just recently got the new Avi pic..and I was shocked at how good it looks!!!! Practice practice, I tried different modes, and ISO's don't know what they do, but I got that shot..:)

How I take pictures of Pazuzu:

If you can, put on a lot of lights in the room, or even move lamps closer to the tank if possible.

Get the fish to be BACKLIGHT (Light behind the fish) really well, it'll shine through the fish, and bring out the true colors.

Try and get the fish to flare, using mirror or whatever possible.

If your using a DSLR or SLR, use manual focus, because autofocus likes to go crazy through the glass wall.

Frame the fish through the viewfinder, zoom in and out, keeping the focus locked on the fish, then if you have to move the whole camera back and forth to get it perfect.

If you're just using a regular point and shoot, try and focus on the fish quickly and snap the pictures, you're probably going to need to do a lot of shots since they're constantly moving. Just wait for him/her to calm down and float.

Snap lots of pictures with the FLASH ON, it brightens the colors, and if there's any iridescence on the fish, it'll bring it out. It also allows for quicker shutter speeds, which freezes any motion, also eliminating the blur.

hahaha where did I get him? XD He's from petsmart, a crazy petsmart find lol. He's awesome, but now that I've had him a few days I'm pretty sure he can barely see and I'm going to have to find a good way to feed him.

Costa Rica's most wanted

These are my 3 beautiful bettas. The top one is my first, the middle one is a beautiful dragon and the bottom one I rescued from my non-caring cousin. All the way from Costa Rica!
