Exclamation Question About Photographing Bettas...

Is it possible with using the flash so often when taking pictures of them it would end up permanently hurting their eyes? What are the odds/chances of this happening? I just don't want to accidentally blind my babies!!

Most people take pictures by turning the flash off and using the Macro setting.

That's what I do but usually it's dark in my room late afternoon/night time when I actually get home and think about taking the pictures...

Yeah, my room is in the basement so it's always pretty dim. I move my reading lamp over the tanks for light when i want to take pictures.

I thought about that too and I turn on the light over my tank and turn on the room light to take pictures. I think that i have used flash only a few times.

I don't think anything would happen, really. It might be uncomfortable, and they might shy away from it, but I don't think it'll cause them to go blind. I'm no expert, though, so do what you think is best :P I don't take pictures enough to really think about it...

Me neither...If I had my own camera, I'd probably be taking pictures of my bettas everyday. :P

I turn my lights off, and turn on a fish tank light over his bowl, and take photo's that way. I put it on the macro setting as well.
